The "Kuhn 100" conference is organized in partnership between the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Bucharest (through its Department for Theoretical Philosophy) and the University's Research Institute (ICUB), specifically its Humanities Division.

The event is scheduled to take place November 18-19, 2022. It will have a mixed format, in that speakers may choose whether they present online only, or face to face at the event's location (if so, their session will enjoy a live audience, but it will also be streamed to remote participants).
