CALL FOR PAPERS: Philosophy of Scientific Experimentation 4, 11-12 Apr 2014, Pittsburgh PA (U.S.A.)
Submissions on any aspect of experiment and simulation are welcome. Deadline: January 15, 2014 Notification By: February 15, 2014 Submission Requirement: 1000-word abstract Submit through EasyChair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=psx4 Accommodations: Rooms for scholars whose contributed papers are accepted will be provided for three nights. This is the fourth conference which explores the roles of experiment in science and the reasons why one experiment legitimately plays such roles. In this conference we wish to emphasize answers to the question, "What Makes a Good Experiment?" One can distinguish between conceptually important experiments, those classified by their relation to theory; testing theory, calling for a new theory etc. and technically good experiments, those that measure a quantity of scientific interest with greater accuracy and precision than had been done previously. Both types of experiment must be methodologically good, experiments that give reasoned and valid arguments for the credibility of their results.
