This conference is intended for an academic audience working or interested in philosophy of science in the broadest possible sense. Every three years, the Dutch Society for the Philosophy of Science (DSPS; in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Wetenschapsfilosofie, NVWF), organises this interational conference. The original idea was to collect everybody in one place who is active in this area of philosophy at an academic level (PhD-students, professors, lecturers, readers, post-docs) in the Netherlands and Flanders and retreat in a forest.

Besides these plenary lectures, there will be parallell sessions for contributed speakers with talks lasting 45 minutes including Q&A (no more than two parallel sessions at every time). Everyone can submit a contribution.

The conference site, Kaap Doon, is easily reachable by public transport from Utrecht, a major hub in the center of the Netherlands. Check for more information.

The conference is a typical on-site conference with all meals and refreshments included. Don't be shocked by the registration fees---you get value for money and you can choose from different packages, too. You need to register via the link below.
