Carlos García-Reyes (ICIII, Madrid)  Dolores Martín-Moruno (iEH2, Université de Genève)  Àlvar Martínez-Vidal (IHMC López Piñero, Universitat de València)   Present-day humanitarian crises, such as the Syrian Civil War and the subsequent refugee exodus, highlight the challenges of providing emergency medical relief to populations in distress, resulting from armed conflict or catastrophe, whether provoked by natural or artificial causes. Recent publications have also echoed the increasing concern with humanitarian medicine in the contemporary world, particularly, since the creation of Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) following the Biafra War. The growing importance of humanitarian medicine is also reflected in the creation of university chairs in the field, as it has become an integrated part of the curricula of numerous North American and European medical schools.    Organising institutions of the 9th ESS:  Institut Menorquí d’Estudis (IME), Maó  Societat Catalana d’Història de la Ciència i la Tècnica (SCHCT)  Institución Milà i Fontanals (IMF), CSIC, Barcelona  Institut Ethique Histoire Humanités (Programme d’histoire de la médecine), Université de Genève  Institut d’Història de la Medicina i de la Ciència López Piñero (IHMC), Universit
