The Ninth Principia International Symposium will be held in  Florianopolis, Brazil, from August 17th to 20th, 2015, focusing on possible worlds and their applications in philosophy and the sciences. Possible worlds have been widely used in many areas of philosophy, in particular, in metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of physics, and philosophical logic. We welcome contributions that address any aspect of the significance of possible worlds or that examine critically their use in philosophy or in the interpretation of the sciences.
