Manchester to host seven-day congress

Manchester will host The International Congress of History of Science, Technology and Medicine next month, the largest ever meeting of its kind.

The seven day congress, which takes place every four years, is being held at the University of Manchester from the 22-28 July and is expected to attract 1,800 delegates. 

The theme for the Manchester symposium is ‘Knowledge at Work’ - a topic which will see 1,600 individual papers presented within 434 themed sessions over the course of the week.

During the congress there will be organised visits to places of interest for delegates, including: the Museum of Science and Industry; Jodrell Bank Observatory; Quarry Bank Mill and Styal Estate; and Chatsworth in Derbyshire.

The congress was secured for Manchester through a joint approach between Visit Manchester, The University of Manchester’s conference office and Manchester conference Ambassador Dr Jeff Hughes. Previous meetings have been held in Mexico City in 2001, in Beijing in 2005 and Budapest in 2009.
