15-16 December 2011, Madrid-Tilburg Workshop: Statistics and Scientific Method I, Madrid, Spain

Date: 15-16 December 2011
Location: Madrid, Spain
Deadline: 20 September 2011

Scientists spend a lot of time testing a hypothesis, and classifying experimental results as (in)significant evidence. But even after a century of hot debate, there is no consensus on what this concept of significance implies, how the results of hypothesis tests should be interpreted, and which practical pitfalls have to be avoided.

Our workshop brings together the perspectives of philosophers and methodologists, statisticians and practitioners. Contributions on all aspects of hypothesis testing that relate to the use and interpretation of those tests, and their role for scientific inference, are welcome. The workshop will be focused on debate, with a discussant for each paper, no parallel sessions and active engagement between the participants.

We invite submissions of extended abstracts (up to 1000 words) by 20 September 2011.
