1st CALL FOR PAPERS: Logic, Questions and Inquiry, 30 May - 1 Jun 2013, Paris, FRANCE

LoQI Paris


The aim of the Conference on Logic, Questions and Inquiry (LoQI) is to address issues in the 
philosophical and logical investigations of questions and inquiry from the various perspectives 
of formal epistemology, formal semantics and pragmatics, philosophy of science and philosophy of 
mathematics. The conference intends to bring together researchers from these different fields in 
order to trigger interactions between the various existing approaches to questions and inquiry,
and to promote cooperation and exchange on research projects related to these issues. The event 
will then be the occasion to assess the different past scientific contributions on these topics, 
and to discuss possibilities for new research directions.

The LoQI conference will be held in Paris, France, from May 30th to June 1st, 2013. The conference
is organized within the Interrogative Model of Inquiry (IMI) Project funded by the Agence Nationale
 de la Recherche (ANR), and its main themes are heavily inspired by Hintikka's works on the IMI. 
The LoQI conference is thereby inscribed in the continuity of the Interrogative Model of Inquiry 
Workshop, held in Paris in January 2012.

The conference will welcome 9 invited speakers, along with some contributed speakers. We invite 
submissions addressing issues related to Logic, Questions and Inquiry, and we encourage specifically
submissions connecting the different themes of the conference. Submission exploring connections 
to philosophy of science and philosophy of mathematics are very welcome.

Possible topics to be discussed at the conference comprise, but are not restricted to:

- Formal models of inquiry
- Logics, semantics and pragmatics of questions
- Logical and philosophical developments of Hintikka's IMI
- Interaction between learning theory and logics of questions
- Interaction between belief revision theory and logics of questions
- Interaction between learning theory and belief revision theory
- The social dimension of inquiry
- Questions and inquiry in the philosophy of empirical sciences
- Questions and inquiry in the philosophy of mathematics
- Questions and inquiry in formal and mainstream epistemology


Abstracts of at most 2 pages length should be submitted via our webpage at by clicking "Submit" on the left column. 
Deadline for submissions is March 1st, and the date for notifications is March 31st.


We will be able to award few travel grants to graduate students with accepted contributed talks to 
assist them in their travel expenses. For travel grant applications, send a CV and an application 
letter to

Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) and is hosted by the Institut d'Histoire et de Philosophie 
des Sciences et des Techniques (IHPST).

The conference is also sponsored by the Center for Formal Epistemology of Carnegie Mellon
