Every three years, the Dutch Society for the Philosophy of Science (DSPS; in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Wetenschapsfilosofie, NVWF), organises this international conference with the original aim to collect everybody in one place who is active in this area of philosophy in the Netherlands and Flanders (PhD-students, professors, lecturers, readers, students). This conference is intended for an academic audience interested in philosophy of science in the broadest possible sense. The first edition of Philosophy of Science in a Forest, Spring 2010, was the first with English as the conference language. Contributions in the Dutch language are however not forbidden. Contributions from all over the world are now welcome in English.
Location: Internationale School voor Wijsbegeerte (ISVW), Leusden, in a forest near Amersfoort, The Netherlands (Amersfoort is about 35 minutes by train from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport). For registration details and how to get there, see: http://www.isvw.nl/nl/philosophy-of-science-in-a-forest-2013/
Dates: Thursday 23 May, 14:00 h., until Saturday 25 May, 13:30 h.
