Call for Papers: HOPOS 2024 at The University of Vienna, July 9-12, 2024.

The International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science (HOPOS) will hold its biennial international congress at the University of Vienna, Austria, 9–12 July 2024. The Society hereby requests proposals for papers and symposia to be presented at the meeting.

Submission deadline: extended to Oct. 1 2023.

HOPOS is devoted to promoting serious, scholarly research on the history of the philosophy of science. We construe this subject broadly, to include topics in the history of related disciplines and in all historical periods, studied through diverse methodologies. We aim to promote historical work in a variety of ways, but especially through encouraging exchange among scholars through meetings, publications, and electronic media. The program committee particularly encourages submissions on philosophical themes that cross time periods. The conference language is English.

The conference will take place directly after "Paul Feyerabend and Austrian Philosophy: His Formative Years in Postwar Vienna”, an international conference also to be held at the University of Vienna, from July 5-6, 2024.

Guidelines for Submissions:

HOPOS 2024 accepts two types of submissions: contributed papers and symposia, which are topical collections of 3-4 papers intended to be presented in a single session.
