CALL FOR PAPERS:Conference on Logic and Philosophy of Science, 16-18 Sep 2013, Gent, BELGIUM

http://www.clps13.ugent.be/

The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science of Ghent University was founded
in 1993. On occasion of its 20th anniversary the Centre organises an
international Conference on Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLPS13) on the
themes that are central to its research:

- Logical analysis of scientific reasoning processes

- Methodological and epistemological analysis of scientific reasoning
processes


Conference dates: 16-18 September 2013


Keynote talks will be given by Diderik Batens (the founder of the Centre),
three logicians (Natacha Alechina, Graham Priest, and Stephen Read), and three
philosophers of science (Hanne Andersen, Hasok Chang and Jim Woodward).



We welcome submissions for contributed papers on every topic that falls within
the scope of the two themes mentioned above.



Examples relating to the first topic are: logical analyses of paraconsistent
reasoning, reasoning under uncertainty, defeasible reasoning, abduction, causal
reasoning, induction, analogical reasoning, belief revision, theory change,
conceptual change, erotetic reasoning, argumentation, ...



Examples relating to the second topic are: methodological and epistemological
analyses of causation and mechanisms, scientific discovery, the structure of
scientific theories and models, experiments and thought experiments, theory
choice, theory dynamics, rationality, the social organisation of science,
expertise, science policy, ....



On top of the keynote talks and the regular sessions with contributed papers,
we will also schedule eleven special symposia with a limited number of papers:

- Logic and action (#1)

- Mathematics and computation: Historical and epistemological issues (#2)

- Causality in/and medicine (#3)

- Proofs, programs, procedures: formal and epistemic issues (#4)

- Analogy and metaphor in creative problem solving (#5)

- Rational disagreement in science (#6)

- Nominalism and its foes: formal methods (#7)

- Non-standard models of belief change (#8)

- Moral responsibility of scientists (#9)

- Functional analysis and explanation (#10)

- Solving/handling/avoiding paradoxes by means of non-classical logics (#11)

Each symposium is organised by one or two post-doctoral researchers of the
CLPS, and it is possible to submit a paper for these symposia. The description
of the symposia can be found here (link).



If you want to present a paper at CLPS13, please upload an abstract in PDF
format (between 500 and 1000 words) to: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?
conf=clps13 before 1 April 2013. You will be asked to choose between one of the
following submission categories:

- Logical analysis of scientific reasoning processes

- Methodological and epistemological analysis of scientific reasoning
processes

If you submit an abstract for a symposium, don?t forget to mention the
symposium number in the title.
