Registration is open for *Scientiae: Disciplines of Knowing in the Early-Modern World*, an international conference to be held in Vancouver, B.C., under the auspices of Simon Fraser University, April 26th-28th, 2012. See
The keynote speakers for *Scientiae* will be Mario Biagioli and Peter Harrison. Dr. Biagioli is the author of *Galileo’s Instruments of Credit* (Chicago, 2006) and *Galileo, Courtier* (Chicago, 1993), among many other publications. Dr. Harrison’s publications include *The Fall of Man and the Foundations of Science* (Cambridge, 2007), *The Bible, Protestantism and the Rise of Natural Science* (Cambridge, 1998), and, as editor, *The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion* (Cambridge, 2010).
All sessions of *Scientiae* will be held at SFU Harbour Centre, waterfront in the heart of downtown Vancouver. A favorable rate is available at the Delta Vancouver Suites Hotel, opposite the conference site. The location is excellent for walking, dining, shopping, etc. Late April, with luck, brings warm spring weather to the region; even while skiing continues on the local mountains, including Whistler.
We hope that many of you will consider joining us, to participate in the rich discussions that the conference promises to provide. For registration, accommodation, draft program, and other information, please see the conference website (above).
