Metaphysics of Science Conference: Call for Papers
University of Melbourne 2-5 July 2009
Deadline: 30 January 2009
We invite offers of papers for a conference on the metaphysics of
science, which is to be held at the University of Melbourne from 2-5
July 2009. The conference is a collective initiative of the
philosophy programs at La Trobe, Monash and Melbourne Universities, as
well as the Centre for Time at the University of Sydney. Further
information about the conference is available on the conference
To propose a paper, please submit a 500 word abstract to Howard Sankey
(email@example.com) before the deadline of 30 January 2009.
Because of space and time constraints, there may be a need to place
limitations on the number of papers that we accept for the conference.
If we are unable to make a decision on whether to accept a paper
based on the abstract, we may request that a full-length version of
the paper be submitted for consideration. We hope to be able to
inform potential conference participants whether their paper is
accepted by mid-February 2009.
The Metaphysics of Science conference is scheduled to lead into the
annual conference of the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP),
which will be held in Melbourne commencing the evening of 5 July. In
the event that we are unable to accommodate all papers within the
Metaphysics of Science conference, we expect to hold a number of
metaphysics of science streams within the AAP conference programme.
