What kind of relationship holds between grounding and ontological dependence? Each constitutes a central debate topic in contemporary analytic metaphysics. However, it is under question to what extent the two interact and contribute to debates concerning identity, parthood, and location, to mention a few. The workshop explores the relationship between dependence and grounding and, jointly, their relevance in addressing metaphysical questions such as those mentioned above.
