42nd Annual Philosophy of Science Conference 2015 Dubrovnik

  • Conference Call
  • The Inter-​University Centre Dubrovnik (UIC) is kindly inviting you to participate in the 42nd Annual Philosophy of Science Conference – Philosophy of Physics; Science, Technology and Values and the Philosophy of the History of Science which will be held April 13 – 17, 2015 in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

    Conference description

    Philosophy of science studies the foundations, methods, and implications of the sciences from a philosophical perspective. Classic topics in philosophy of science include the relation between theory and observation, the rational justification of scientific methods, the functions of experiment, and the interpretation of scientific theories such as quantum theory and evolution theory. Philosophers of science also frequently discuss such wider topics as cognition, the relation between science and the arts and culture, and the findings of history and social studies of science.
    This annual international five-​day conference is a forum for the presentation and discussion of new research in philosophy of science. Each year’s meeting focuses on three broad themes, but the organizers welcome papers in other topical areas of philosophy of science too. A session usually consists of a 45-​minute paper followed by a 30-​minute discussion period; extended lunch and coffee breaks are an important element of the programme. The atmosphere is informal and friendly. Whereas most participants are researchers in philosophy of science, the organizers encourage also scientists and scholars in history and social studies of science to participate.

    For students

    Advanced students in any of these fields are especially welcome: they may present a paper, benefit from informal discussion, or arrange with one of the organizers to write a report or an essay on the conference themes. Students may receive credit for their participation in the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
