Announcement

Argument

In order to enhance the contacts between young researchers in the philosophy of science and to participate in the construction of a network of young researchers on the internationallevel, the Société de philosophie des sciences (http://www.sps-philoscience.org/) organizes each year an International doctoral conference in the philosophy of science. In 2015, this conference will be held in Nancy, at the Université de Lorraine, laboratory Archives Henri Poincaré on Thursday the 1st and Friday the 2nd of October, 2015. StéphanieDupouy (Université de Strasbourg) and Manuel Rebuschi (Université de Lorraine) will be guest speakers.

During the Doctoral Conference, students from the 2nd year of their doctorate on, as well as young researchers having defended their thesis less than two years before the submission date will be presenting their works in philosophy of science broadly understood (general philosophy of science, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of physics, philosophy of biology, philosophy of medicine, philosophy of social sciences, theory of scientific knowledge etc.). The communications will be performed preferably in French, though communications in English are accepted. Each presentation will be allotted 30 minutes, including 5 minutes devoted to a general presentation of the subject of the thesis, and will be followed by some time for discussion. Without giving up on the usual standards of their own field, the authors are invited to stress their contributions to general problems in philosophy of science.

Guidelines submission

The doctoral students and young researchers who wish to participate in the conference should submit a long abstract (6000 signs max.) prepared for blind review. Another file shall contain a short presentation of the thesis and its relation with the submission (2000 signs max.), as well as the following informations: name, surname, subject of the thesis, name of PhD advisor, institution, year of the first inscription in postgraduate studies or, for young researchers, date of the defense of the thesis. Either .pdf or .doc-x formats are accepted.

The communication proposals should be sent to rdips-2015@univ-lorraine.fr

not later than the 7th of May, 2015.

The program committee will communicate its decisions in June.

Participants are free to become member of the SPS (10 € for students). Besides, students who are not going to make a presentation are invited to attend the conference, which shall treat a variety of research topics in contemporary philosophy of science on an accessible level.
