CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue on Epistemology of Modeling and Simulation


"Philosophy & Technology" Journal

Philosophy & Technology 
http://www.springer.com/philosophy/epistemology+and+philosophy+of+science/journal/13347

will publish a special issue on The Epistemology of Modeling & Simulation, 
guest edited by Patrick Grim.

The special issue will expand on themes form the Epistemology of Modeling 
& Simulation conference at the University of Pittsburgh in April 
(http://www.modelingepistemology.pitt.edu).

Papers that cross boundaries between computational modeling and philosophy 
are welcomed, whether tied to the conference or not. The issue will be 
targetted to both work in modeling that raises philosophical issues, 
whatever the discipline of origin, and work in philosophy that 
concentrates on specific cases of modeling in any of various fields.

In order to submit a paper for consideration, please register online at 
the Springer site:

Register at http://www.editorialmanager.com/phte/default.asp

Once you are registered, please submit the article by choosing 'submit new 
manuscript' and select, as article type, SI on EMS (Special issue on 
Epistemology of Modeling & Simulation). Please submit the final version of 
the paper without author names or affiliations, eliminating any obvious 
self-references.

New deadline: January 15, 2012
