Topic areas


The Boulder Conference on the History and Philosophy of Science is an annual event focusing on a key topic in history and philosophy of science. Special invitations are extended to scholars in the Colorado area, but national and international participants are equally welcome.

Papers on any aspect of the history or philosophy of science are encouraged. Since the conference focus this year will be on history and philosophy of climate science, some preference will be given to papers that focus on topics related to either of those areas. 

To be considered for the program, either submit a completed paper with short abstract, or an extended (up to 1000 words) abstract. (Graduate students are asked to submit a completed paper.)

Submissions are due by 15 May 2011 and should be sent as an email attachment ( in .doc or .pdf format) to both Professors Hale and Cleland and cc:d to all three of the following organizer accounts: ([email protected][email protected][email protected]).  Acceptances will be announced by 1 July 2011.

Graduate students are encouraged to submit for the program; those whose papers are accepted will receive a modest stipend of $100 to help offset expenses.

Any questions may be directed to one of the two conference organizers: Benjamin Hale (Philosophy and Environmental Studies, [email protected]) or Carol Cleland (Philosophy, [email protected]).
