This conference will gather specialists of different philosophical fields in order to explore new perspectives in the metaphysics of science.

The conference will welcome invited speakers, and a selection of submitted papers.

The general aim of the conference is to discuss metaphysics of science as such, its relation to science, its commitment (or not) to realism, its methods and aims, and also to say what the most innovative ideas in metaphysics of science are, and where the field is likely to go in the coming years.
