CALL FOR PAPERS: Formal Epistemology, 20-22 Jun 2014, Los Angeles CA (U.S.A.),

The Formal Epistemology Workshop will be held in connection with the 2014 
meeting of the Society for Exact Philosophy, which will take place immediately 
afterwards, at the California Institute of Technology, a short rail ride away 
in Pasadena.

 There will be four contributed talks on Friday, June 20 and four contributed 
talks on Saturday, June 21. Sunday, June 22 will consist of shared events as 
part of both FEW and SEP, including a keynote address (by Bas van Fraassen) and 
a poster session.

 Contributors are invited to send full papers (suitable for presenting as a 40 
minute talk) to:
 by Friday, January 31, 2014.

 Identifying information about the author(s) (including obvious self-citations) 
should be removed from the body of the paper, but the name (and any other 
relevant information) should be included in the text of the e-mail.

 Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review. Initial evaluation will be 
done anonymously. The final program will be selected with an eye towards 
maintaining diversity, so graduate students, people outside the tenure track, 
women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged 
to submit papers.

 Final selection of the contributed talks will be made by March 31, 2014. We 
hope to have some funding available to help defray expenses for student 
contributors - details will be available before the program is finalized.

 Information about the poster session, including submission protocol, will be 
posted later.

 Local organizer: Kenny Easwaran

 Consulting committee: Rachael Briggs, Lara Buchak, Fabrizio Cariani, Trent
