Philosophy of Science in a Forest 2016 (PSF 2016)
This conference is intended for an academic audience working or interested in philosophy of science in the broadest possible sense. Every three years, the Dutch Society for the Philosophy of Science (DSPS; in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Wetenschapsfilosofie, NVWF), organises this interational conference. The original idea was to collect everybody in one place who is active in this area of philosophy at an academic level (PhD-students, professors, lecturers, readers, post-docs) in the Netherlands and Flanders and retreat in a forest. The first edition of Philosophy of Science in a Forest, Spring 2010, was the first having English as the conference language. Contributions in the Dutch language remain however possible. Contributions from all over the world are now very welcome. Warning: there are no travel funds available.
Location: Conference Centre Kaap Doorn, near to Utrecht. Registration is already possible (with various options to choose from):
Dates: Thursday 19 May, 13:00 hours until Saturday 21 May, 13:00 hours.
On Friday evening 20 May, the General Assemblee of the DSPS will take place.
The three invited plenary speakers are: Federica Russo (University of Amsterdam), Matteo Colombo (Tilburg University) and Katie Steele (London School of Economics), all of which have accepted the invitation eagerly. Besides these plenary lectures, there will be parallell sessions for contributed speakers with talks lasting 45 minutes including Q&A (no more than two parallel sessions at every time).
Everyone can submit a contribution.
