Funny? Seriously?
Seriously! Funny!

For the year 2020, with 20-20 foresight, we announce the 32nd ISHS Conference, to be held in Bertinoro, Italy.

Be serious about being funny about being serious and submit an abstract. Or just come along and listen.

The annual ISHS conference that will be held at the University of Bologna’s Summer Residence at Bertinoro, Italy is scheduled from
29 June to 3 July, 2020.

The conference aims at a representative overview of the state of the art in the scientific study of humor; it offers five days of networking possibilities with humor scholars from a wide variety of disciplines in a medieval hamlet with breathtaking landscapes. And finally, delegates will have the chance to explore and enjoy Italy, with its rich offer of historic, artistic and culinary features and endless tourist possibilities. Bertinoro itself is a culinary and cultural treasure as there are numerous small family owned restaurants, cafes, and bars throughout the town.
