CAL FOR ABSTRACTS: 6th Workshop in the Philosophy of Information, 15-16 May 2014, Durham NC (U.S.A.),


Submissions are invited for the Sixth Workshop on the Philosophy of 
Information, which will take place at Duke University, 15th--16th of May 
2014.

 The topic for this year will be Information Access, very broadly 
construed. This includes social, legal, epistemological, logical and 
normative issues that are related to the availability, accessibility and 
control of information, as well as the implications of these 
considerations to other philosophical problems. Submissions in all areas 
related to the philosophy of information will, however, be considered.

 The workshop consists of a main track and two special panels.

 As part of the main track of the workshop, at least 10 slots of 45 minutes 
are available for contributed talks. Abstracts of 500-1000 words should be 
submitted no later than the 1st of March to Orlin Vakarelov at 
o.vakarelov@duke.edu .

 Submissions will be evaluated by the programme committee (see below), and 
acceptance notifications will be issued by the 15th of March 2014.

 The special panels are devoted to the topics of Information and Law, and 
on Information and Policy.
