Following the very successful previous editions at Utrecht (2018) and London (2016), this conference will bring philosophers of physics and physicists to a historic auditorium at the old Sorbonne in which Marie Curie gave her first lecture in 1906. 50 contributed talks and 5 invited speakers will cover the most diverse foundational aspects of physical theory and experiment. Parallel sessions will address the philosophy of quantum physics, space-time physics including quantum gravity, and statistical mechanics.
CALL FOR PAPERS (Bonn, Deadline: 19.01.2020)
Call for abstracts for Workshop “Metaphysics of Physics”, Bonn, 31 March – 2 April 2020
The Working Group “Philosophy of Physics” (AGPhil) of the German Physical Society (DPG) invites submissions for its annual workshop. Contributions on any topic in the philosophy of physics are welcome. The workshop takes place 31 March – 2 April 2020 at the University of Bonn and will be part of the Annual Meeting of the DPG (https://bonn20.dpg-tagungen.de/). The AGPhil organizes a small workshop on “Metaphysics of Physics”. Contributions in this area are especially welcome.
Confirmed speakers so far:
Karen Crowther (Oslo)
Matt Farr (Cambridge)
Andreas Hüttemann (Cologne)
Christopher Timpson (Oxford)
Alastair Wilson (Birmingham)
If you would like to present a paper, please submit an abstract of about 200 words by 19 January 2020 (ignore the stated 15 December 2019 abstract submission deadline on the website), using the online-form at https://www.dpg-tagung.de/bn20/submission.html?language=en.

Call for Papers: Conference on the Foundations of Cosmology and Quantum Gravity (FCQG 2020)
At New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) on January 19-21, 2020.
The conference is being jointly sponsored by the NYUAD Institute and two generous grants from the Templeton Foundation—one supporting the ‘Beyond Spacetime’ project based at Illinois-Chicago and Geneva, and the other supporting the `New Directions in Philosophy of Cosmology’ based at UC-Irvine and Western University.
KEYNOTE SPEAKERS INCLUDE
Submissions are invited for the 2020 Du Châtelet Prize in Philosophy of Physics. The topic for this year’s prize is: Mathematics as a tool of conceptual innovation in physical theory and/or experiment, 1780-1890.
Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics
Deadline: 1 DECEMBER 2019
INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES ON DARK MATTER & MODIFIED GRAVITY
Astrophysical and cosmological observations as well as explanatory gaps in the Standard Model of particle physics imply the existence of dark matter and/or a modification of our best theory of space, time and gravity, namely general relativity and its Newtonian limit. We invite historical and/or philosophical contributions on dark matter (DM) and/or modified gravity (MG) and especially the interface between these two research programmes. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
We are delighted to announce the Second Chilean Conference on the Philosophy of Physics. The conference will be hosted by the Philosophy Institute at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. It will be held in Santiago, between december 4 and 6.
