Time and Causality in the Sciences (TaCitS)
June 7-9, 2017
Stevens Institute of Technology Hoboken, NJ

The Causality in the Sciences conference series brings together philosophers and scientists to explore various aspects of causality. This 12th conference in the series will focus on the relationship between time and causality.

The conference will explore all facets of the relationship between time and causality across philosophy, computation, and specific scientific disciplines. Some key themes include:  arrow of time * causal inference from time series data * role of time in causal perception and judgment * time and causal metaphysics * applications to longitudinal datasets

Abstracts should be no more than 500 words, submitted via easychair:

Important dates:
March 15 – Submission 
April 15 – Notification of acceptance

Organizers: Samantha Kleinberg (Stevens), Michael Strevens (NYU)

Steering Committee: Phyllis Illari (UCL), Bert Leuridan (University of Antwerp), Julian Reiss, (Durham), Federica Russo (UvA), Erik Weber (Ghent) Jon Williamson (Kent)


In light of the chaos and fear caused for travel to the US by the possible immigration ban, and resulting calls to boycott US conferences, we have discussed whether we should go ahead with TaCits NY in June  Given the work already put in by local organisers, and the fact that US academics would also appreciate support just now, we have decided to continue.

We are, however, very aware that some people may be unable or unwilling to travel to the conference.  We ask that citizens of countries who wish to submit abstracts, but are potentially affected by the ban, get in touch with us, so that we can see whether it is possible to make any arrangements for some kind of remote access.  We know that this is at best a half-solution, and apologise for that.

All the very best,
Causality in the Sciences steering committee
