Second Formal Epistemology Festival

Causal Decision Theory and Scoring Rules
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
May 29-31, 2009

This is the second of three small, thematically focused events in formal epistemology, organized by Franz Huber (Konstanz), Eric Swanson (Michigan), and Jonathan Weisberg (Toronto). This year's festivities coincide with the 10th anniversary of the publication of James Joyce's The Foundations of Causal Decision Theory. Confirmed participants include John Collins, Branden Fitelson, Allan Gibbard, Chris Hitchcock, James Joyce, Sarah Moss, and the organizers.

We welcome submissions of papers on topics related to causal decision theory, scoring rules, or both. Please send a pdf prepared for blind reviewing to ericsw@umich.edu.

Some funding for travel expenses may become available. Click here for a printable call for papers. For more information, see http://www-personal.umich.edu/~ericsw/2fef .
