SUBMISSIONS: WHAT WE’LL BE LOOKING FOR

The broad topic of the conference will be metaphysics of science, covering
the core areas of causation, dispositions, laws and natural kinds.
We welcome submissions from graduate students
 as well as from
academics on
the above subjects
 for multiple parallel sessions. Please indicate
if you
wish to be considered for the graduate sessions
which will be held
separately.
Detailed abstracts of ca. 1,000 words outlining the main arguments of your
paper should be sent by e-mail attachment to Matt at apxmt1@nottingham.ac.uk
or to Markus at markus.schrenk@nottingham.ac.uk
You may, alternatively, submit the full paper, accompanied by a shorter
abstract. If we are unable to decide about a paper based on the abstract, we
may request that the full-length paper be sent to us for consideration.
Please note: our ability to accommodate all papers may be restricted.
We accept the following formats: doc, txt, rtf, pdf, pages. Papers must be
suitable for presentation in ca. 30min (15min are reserved for
Q&A).
