SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE COLLOQUIUM

ORGANISED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY, UNIVERSITY OF JOHANNESBURG

18 JANUARY 2011

Papers are invited for a Philosophy of Science Colloquium on the day before the Philosophical Society of Southern Africa's annual conference (19-21 January 2011) kicks off. Please note:

The venue will be the Salt Rock Hotel about 100 km from Durban, SA (see also http://www.saltrockbeach.co.za). Although favorable rates have been negotiated for all delegates, we urge all participants to reserve rooms as soon as possible, since availability is limited.

Our keynote speaker will be Ian Hacking, Collège de France & University of Toronto.

Papers can cover any theme in general philosophy of science.

Abstracts (1500 words) should reach Emma Ruttkamp as soon as possible but definitely by 30 October 2010 -- note that the number of presentations is limited and that early submission is advisable.

There will be 30-40 minute slots, depending on the number of papers selected.

To enable in-depth discussion at the colloquium, authors of papers selected for presentation at the symposium will be required to make available their full papers for circulation among participants by 31 December 2010.

The first issue of the South African Journal of Philosophy in 2011 will include a selection of the papers presented at the colloquium. To be considered for inclusion in this special philosophy of science symposium in the first issue of the SAJP in 2011, full papers must reach the editor of the SAJP, Abraham Olivier, and the guest editor of the symposium, Emma Ruttkamp, by 30 October 2010.

Please note that the PSSA 2011 conference will be held at the same venue (19-21 January 2011) and that abstracts of between 300 and 500 words intended for this conference should reach the conference organizers (D. Mistrey or Apg Palma) as soon as possible and before 1 October 2010.
