Call for Papers

First Formal Epistemology Festival
Conditionals and Ranking Functions
Konstanz, July 28-30, 2008

This is the first of a series of small and thematically focused events 
in formal epistemology organized by Eric Swanson (Michigan), Jonathan 
Weisberg (Toronto), and Franz Huber (Caltech and Konstanz).

The background for the first Formal Epistemology Festival is the 40th 
anniversary of Robert Stalnaker’s “A Theory of Conditionals” and the 
20th anniversary of Wolfgang Spohn’s “Ordinal Conditional Functions. A 
Dynamic Theory of Epistemic States”.

Invited speakers include:
Alan Hjek (ANU)
Hannes Leitgeb (Bristol)
Hans Rott (Regensburg)
Wolfgang Spohn (Konstanz)
Robert Stalnaker (MIT)
Timothy Williamson (Oxford)

The festivities of 2009 will take place in Ann Arbor, featuring Causal 
Decision Theory and Scoring Rules (this happens to be the 10th 
anniversary of James Joyce’s The Foundations of Causal Decision 
Theory). The festivities of 2010 will take place in Toronto and focus 
on Defeater/Default Logic and Perception (this happens to be the 30th 
anniversary of Ray Reiter’s “A Logic for Default Reasoning” and the 
15th anniversary of John Pollock’s Cognitive Carpentry). Further 
details about these events will be announced in due time.

We are now inviting submissions of papers of at least 5000 words on 
Conditionals and Ranking Functions. Please send a pdf prepared for 
blind reviewing to:
