Annual Formal Epistemology Workshops

We are in the process of organizing a first annual formal epistemology workshop. The purpose of these workshops will be to bring together individuals, both faculty and graduate students, using mathematical methods in epistemology in small focused meetings. Topics treated will include but are not limited to:

Besides papers with respondents, each workshop will typically include short introductory tutorials (three or four topically related presentations) on formal methods. These tutorials will be oriented particularly to graduate students.

The first workshop is scheduled for 21–23 May 2004 and will be held at University of California at Berkeley. Those who are present at that meeting will decide on the schedule and location of subsequent meetings.
