The International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching Group was formed in 1987 and the group holds biennial conferences in North America and Europe since. The conferences provides as a platform for presenting research on the connection between the history and philosophy of science and theoretical, curricular and pedagogical issues in the teaching of science and mathematics. Accordingly the conferences bring together scientists, historians, philosophers, educators, cognitive scientists and school teachers. To promote the participations of researches around the world, the group starts to stage the regional conference in Latin American and Asian since 2010. The 3nd Latioamerican IHPST regional conference will be held on 17-19 November, 2014., Santiago, Chile. The 2nd Asian IHPST regional conference will be held on 4-7 December, 2014 in Taipei, Taiwan.
