14th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science
19-26 July, 2011
It is with pleasure that we announce the upcoming 14th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science, a leading congress in its field, which will be held on July 19-26, 2011, in Nancy (France). The Congress will feature more than 50 invited speakers, several plenary symposia and lectures, as well as a general program for a wider audience.
The Congress program will comprise four main sections and seventeen subsections:
A1. Mathematical Logic
A2. Philosophical Logic
A3. Logic and Computation
B. General Philosophy of Science
B1. Methodology and Scientific Reasoning
B2. Ethical Issues in the Philosophy of Science
B3. Historical Aspects in the Philosophy of Science
C. Methodological and Philosophical Issues of Particular Sciences
C1. Logic, Mathematics and Computer Science
C2. Cognitive Science (including Linguistics and Psychology)
C7. Environmental Sciences
C8. Economics and Social Sciences
D. Methodological and Philosophical Issues in Technology
D1. Methodology of Technology and Engineering
D2. Norms and Values in Technology and Engineering
D3. Models and Modeling in Technology
In close relationship with the importance given to the philosophy of technology in the program structure, and for the first time in its history, the Congress presents a special topic of interest that will be the focus of a series of lectures and symposia:
"Logic and Science Facing the New Technologies"
This presents the opportunity for casting a strong light on an issue of major importance today, namely: the integration of contemporary technologies in sciences and in society. Questions surrounding this issue are likely to interest the scientific community, as well as a variety of social actors and various partners involved in the congress. It is our hope that devoting a series of plenary lectures, symposia and special sessions to this theme will enable philosophers and logicians to help deepen our understanding of the most promising orientations in science and even help promote future advances in human civilization.
Also for the first time, there will be a call for contributed symposia in addition to the call for contributed papers. Both calls will be issued on 1 June 2010, with 31 October 2010 being the submission deadline.
In addition to the scientific program, a series of events for a wider audience will be organized before and during the Congress.
