Values in Science and Science Policy
George Mason University
May 23 – 24, 2014
The Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy at George Mason University invites submissions for a workshop on values in science and science policy, broadly construed. The conference will be held on Mason’s Fairfax Campus in the Metro Washington, DC area on May 23–24.
Deadline for submissions (paper or abstract) has been extended to April 8.
The workshop will focus on the role played by values — epistemic or otherwise — in scientific inquiry, and its implications for the manner in which science is used to inform policy and for the way in which science is funded and organized. Preference will be given to submissions that touch upon both themes in the title.
