The proceedings of this year's 27th International Meeting of Collectors and Researchers of Slide Rules and other Historic Computing Instruments or IM2021 for short will be published as a book like the ones for IM2013 and IM2017.

 preliminary cover

The circumstances are however different from those of former years due to the COVID pandemic and the the online conference form. But we found a way to handle the distribution.

Right now, I am working hard to finish the proceedings, so that I can submit them to the manufacturing process. The goal is to have the book in your hands at the time of the conference, at least for most of the participants. It cannot be guaranteed, but I try hard.

how to get the
  European buyers

You can order the proceedings from the publisher's web site. As there is no intermediate trading in this direct order, the publisher offers free shipping for Europe, even some countries not in the EU.

The direct link (URL) will be here as soon as the book will be available / ready to order.

Buyers from other parts of the world

As the special offer of free shipping is not available for countries outside Europe, I will make a one-time special offer for those participants: I will buy a number of books at author's bulk price and sell them to these participants, including shipping. To make that work, I will set a price as soon as the book is ready to print and I have a good estimate for the bulk price I can get, as well as the costs of shipping. I will publish that price here and take orders, which will require payment by PayPal in advance. It will be a strictly one-time operation with a firm deadline, and sorry, no exceptions. All this has to be handled in early August.

If this is your choice: Watch this space!

General availability

The proceedings will be also available as any book at traditional book sellers and equally well as online sellers, notably Amazon. However, depending on where you live, there can be hugely varying shipping costs and delivery times. In most cases you will be better off with one of the two options above.

proceedings of
IM2013 & IM2017
still available

The IM2013 and IM2017 proceedings are still available through book sellers, online sellers like Amazon, and of course directly from the publisher BoD (that includes the free shipping to European countries).
