The Center for History of Science at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences on Friday December 6th, 2013 will celebrate that exactly 25 years earlier the inaugural conference took place. It is thus the Center’s silver jubilee. We would like to take this opportunity to look back, look into what role even numbers might play in science and in history, as well as looking into how the future of history of science might look.
The julibee symposium will be arranged at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm.
