Postgraduate Conference on Conventional Principles in Science

Deadline for registration: 30th June 2011

Registration is free, but all those wishing to attend must register. To register, please send an email including your personal details (name, affiliation, status) to Milena Ivanova (milena.ivanova'at'bristol.ac.uk) with the subject line "Conference Registration". The conference will take place in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bristol on the 18th and 19th of August 2011 (Lecture Theatre 2, 9 Woodland Road, BS8 1TB).

We aim to bring together young researchers interested in the history of philosophy of science and the development of the notion of relativized a priori (from Henri Poincaré and Hans Reichenbach to Michael Friedman), as well as philosophers of physics who can provide illuminating examples of conventions in physics and analyse their role and status in relation to the notion of relativized a priori.
The conference will include both invited and contributed talks.

Keynote speaker: Michael Friedman (Stanford).
Invited speakers: Hannes Leitgeb (Munich), Eleanor Knox (London), Adam Caulton (London)
