1-3 April 2011, Epistemology of Modeling & Simulation, Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.

Date: 1-3 April 2011
Location: Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.
Deadline: 7 January 2011

The conference will focus on philosophical issues that arise within the practice and application of contemporary research using modeling and simulation. The goal of this event is "Building Bridges Between the Philosophical and Modeling Communities": to bring together sophisticated work in philosophy of science and on-going efforts in modeling in order to build more effective collaboration between philosophers of science and those who build and employ models in a range of disciplines and applications.

Submission of extended abstracts is invited (1000 words) for presentations of approximately 30 minutes. Modeling work in any discipline or application is welcomed that includes philosophical reflection on epistemological issues raised. Philosophical work in any relevant area is welcomed, with preference given for work that includes a focus on specific examples of contemporary modeling. Projects that involve both philosophers and those active in modeling research, outcomes, or policy impact are particularly encouraged. Deadline for submission: January 7, 2011.
