The 2010 Synthese Conference: Announcement and Call for Papers

On April 15th and 16th of 2010, the Synthese Conference will take place at Columbia University. The 2010 edition of the Synthese Conference will focus on the theme of epistemology and economics. Recent years have seen an increasing amount of interaction between epistemology and economics: traditional topics in epistemology, such as the analysis of knowledge, have found a significant role in the study of interactive decision making, while traditional topics in economics, such as the analysis of rationality, now figure prominently into certain areas of epistemology.

The conference program will feature the following invited speakers:

Alexandru Baltag (Oxford)
Adam Brandenburger (NYU)
Cristina Bicchieri (UPenn)
Christian List (LSE)
Wlodek Rabinowicz (Lund)

The conference program will also include at least five contributed papers. Every paper that is presented at the conference will be considered for the special issue of Synthese that will be based on the conference theme of epistemology and economics. Submissions should be relevant to the conference theme of epistemology and economics, broadly construed, and should satisfy the usual guidelines for submissions to Synthese. Submissions for the contributed slots must be received no later than February 1, 2010. Notifications of acceptance will be made by February 20, 2010. All submissions should be sent to .

The Synthese editors and Springer have installed a Synthese Distinguished Paper Award for the best paper published in the journal of every other year. The prize will be given every other year among three contesting papers. The winner of the first award will be announced at the conference.

The Synthese Editors-in-Chief: Johan van Benthem, Vincent F. Hendricks and John Symons.

The Local Organizing Committee: John Collins, Haim Gaifman, Jeff Helzner and Philip Kitcher.
