Next year will mark the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus. We think that it would be highly pertinent to discuss how our understanding of the role of hypotheses has changed since his time.

The conference welcomes formal and informal contributions on any aspects of hypothetical reasoning in science. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Historical Issues in Formulation of Hypotheses
  • Predictive and Explanatory Power of Hypotheses
  • Formal Aspects of Hypothetical Reasoning
  • New Trends Disrupting Hypothesis Driven Science

Deadline for submissions: 13 July 2022.

Authors will be informed about the acceptance of their contributions before August 15, 2022.
