CFP: Historical Counterfactuals
Submission deadline: Tuesday, May 1 2012

University of Bristol
Bristol, United Kingdom
Ever since Lewis' celebrated possible worlds account, counterfactuals have been deeply involved with the notion of time. These days there are alternative formulations of the semantics of counterfactuals, some of which focus on the complex role of probabilities (Leitgeb) and of formal branching-time models of indeterminism (Mueller). The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers who are interested in both counterfactuals and time, to share results and ideas.
Please send 500 word abstracts for 45 minute talks to firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone is welcome. There is no registration fee. Speakers will have a contribution towards their travel and accommodation costs.
Deadline for the first call is the 1st of May.
All are welcome.
