Topic areas


This workshop continues the tradition of a friendly and open exchange of ideas and work in progress.

We cordially invite submissions presenting novel contributions in Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Technology/Engineering, or Philosophy of Mathematics (STEM). Submissions addressing historical aspects of the STEM areas from a philosophical perspective are also considered.

Since the emphasis is not on "reading" a paper but on having a dialogue with the participants, presentations should be prepared for a general audience in the philosophy of science and presenters must be ready to break things down for non-specialists.  Presentations will therefore have a workshop character and may take 90 minutes or more.

Please, submit either a paper of 3000 words or a 1000-word extended abstract. Prepare your material for double-blind reviewing and submit it together with a 150-word abstract through EasyChair:
