24-26 June 2011, Episteme Conference, Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.

Date: 24-26 June 2011
Location: Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.
Deadline: 15 February 2011

The 2011 EPISTEME conference will focus on the intersection of formal and social epistemology. The use of formal models in social epistemology is not a new development. Many philosophers have modeled concepts and ideas in social epistemology by using formal tools of various types (e.g., game theory, Bayesian decision theory, the theory of judgment aggregation, the recently developed theory of networks, multi-agent epistemic logic, social choice theory, etc.). This conference intends to explore the many fertile relations between various branches of formal epistemology and many sub-areas of contemporary social epistemology.

The 2011 EPISTEME conference will be hosted by the Center for Formal Epistemology in the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. The topic of the conference is: "Social Epistemology meets Formal Epistemology: Recent developments and new trends"
