Extended Deadline and Call for Papers: Formal Ethics 2012, MCMP

Extended Deadline and Call for Papers: Formal Ethics 2012, MCMP, LMU Munich

*** Deadline has been extended by one more week ***

The application of formal tools from logic and rational choice theory to the analysis of ethical
concepts and theories is a rapidly growing field of research. It has shed new light on a variety of
concepts that are central to ethical theory, such as freedom, responsibility, values, norms, and
conventions. We invite submissions to Formal Ethics 2012, to be held at the Munich Center for
Mathematical Philosophy on October 11th to 13th, 2012. The workshop aims to bring together
researchers at the crossroads of ethical theory and formal methods.

Aside from the contributed talks, the workshop will feature keynote addresses from:

JOHN F. HORTY (Maryland)
GERHARD SCHURZ (Duesseldorf)
