CFP: International Conference on Simplicities and Complexities
Submission deadline: January 15, 2019
May 22, 2019 - May 24, 2019
The Epistemology of the LHC Project
The organisation committee invites abstract submissions on the theme of the conference. Short abstracts (200-300 words) should be submitted to EasyChair by 15 January 2019. We aim to communicate our decision by 28 February. Submissions are welcome from the broad spectrum of scientific fields.
See https://www.lhc-epistemologie.uni-wuppertal.de/complexities for more details
All submitted abstracts will also automatically be considered for the ‘Simplicities & Complexities Essay Competition’. (If you do not want your abstract to be considered for this competition, please indicate this through EasyChair at the time of application.) From the list of applicants selected to give contributing talks, a shortlist of the six best submissions will be determined. These six finalists enter the final round of the Essay Competition. They will be contacted by February 15th, and asked to submit a 3000-5000-word essay before April 15th. One winner will be chosen and announced in the first week of May. This winner will receive the following prizes:
- Instead of a regular contributing talk, the winner will present their essay during a longer, public ‘Award Lecture’ (at some point during the conference)
- Travel reimbursement (up to 300€) + hotel room
Please note that once shortlisted you are guaranteed to speak at the Conference (either as a regular contributing speaker, or, in case of the winner, as the Award-winning Public Speaker).
