Scientific Instrument Commission

The Scientific Instrument Commission (SIC) encourages and promotes scholarly research on the history of scientific instruments. The SIC encourages preservation and documentation of collections of instruments and their use within the wider discipline of the history of science. To promote interest in the history of instruments the SIC holds annual symposia in different parts of the world, usually where there are important collections of instruments or centres of research and teaching.
