meetings in the History & Philosophy of Science(s). I now have received
a large number of replies and, prompted by an off-list note from Cathy
Willermet at Arizona State, here's a summary. For the information
contained, I thank _all_ who sent me mail, but particularly George Gale,
Arno Wouters, Richard Burian, and Kelly Smith.

Two gophers maintain up-dated conference lists in history and
philosophy of science:

Science Society, the Philosophy of Science Association and the Society for

These are to be held in Leuven, Belgium [which, I might add, is a very
interesting place to visit even if, unlike me, you don't get a sense of
temporary relief by observing some other society than your very own
grapple with the daily stresses of politically charged bilingualism.

Hope this is of use to some of you.
