Formal Epistemology Workshop 2014 (including Call for Papers)

11th Annual Formal Epistemology Workshop

June 20-22, 2014
University of Southern California
Los Angeles, CA

The Formal Epistemology Workshop will be held in connection with the 2014 meeting of the Society for Exact Philosophy, which will take place immediately afterwards, at the California Institute of Technology, a short rail ride away in Pasadena.

There will be four contributed talks on Friday, June 20 and four contributed talks on Saturday, June 21. Sunday, June 22 will consist of shared events as part of both FEW and SEP, including a keynote address (by Bas van Fraassen) and a poster session.

Contributors are invited to send full papers (suitable for presenting as a 40 minute talk) to by Friday, January 31, 2014. Identifying information about the author(s) (including obvious self-citations) should be removed from the body of the paper, but the name (and any other relevant information) should be included in the text of the e-mail.

Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review. Initial evaluation will be done anonymously. The final program will be selected with an eye towards maintaining diversity, so graduate students, people outside the tenure track, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to submit papers.

Final selection of the contributed talks will be made by March 31, 2014. We hope to have some funding available to help defray expenses for student contributors - details will be available before the program is finalized.

Information about the poster session, including submission protocol, will be posted later.

Local organizer: Kenny Easwaran
Consulting committee: Rachael Briggs, Lara Buchak, Fabrizio Cariani, Trent Dougherty, Franz Huber, Matthew Kotzen, Sarah Moss, Richard Pettigrew, Mike Titelbaum, Jonathan Weisberg

  1. As an update - we have secured some local funding, so we will definitely be able to subsidize student and non-tenure-track presenters. We hope to be able to pay most or all of the airfare, and arrange for stay with local grad students, but this will depend on the total number of people sharing the subsidy, and the travel costs involved.
