22-24 April 2015, PROGIC 2015: Probability and Logic, Canterbury, England

Date: 22-24 April 2015
Location: Canterbury, England
Deadline: 1 November 2014

This is the seventh in the progic series of conferences, which seeks to address the questions of whether, and if so, how, probability and logic should be combined. The 2015 conference will also be interested in connections between formal epistemology and inductive logic. Can inductive logic shed light on epistemological questions to do with belief, judgement etc.? Can epistemological considerations lead to a viable notion of inductive logic?

Invited speakers include: Richard Bradley, Dorothy Edgington, John Norton, Jeanne Peijnenburg. The conference will be preceded by a two-day Spring School, where introductory lectures on the themes of the conference will be given by Juergen Landes, Jeff Paris, Niki Pfeifer, Gregory Wheeler, Jon Williamson.

A limited number of bursaries are available to postgraduate students attending the Spring School and the conference: these will cover 50% of accommodation and registration costs. For further details please see the conference website http://www.kent.ac.uk/secl/philosophy/jw/2015/progic/.

We invite submissions of two-page extended abstracts of talks for presentation at the workshop. These should be sent by email to by 1st November 2014. There will also be a special issue of the Journal of Applied Logic devoted to the themes of this workshop. We invite submissions of papers to this volume.
