Annual Formal Epistemology Workshops

We are in the process of organizing our fourth annual formal epistemology workshop (the first, second, and third workshops were a great success). The purpose of these workshops is 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 fourth workshop is scheduled for May 31 – June 3, 2007 and will be held at Carnegie Mellon University. We are now accepting submissions for FEW 2007. Please send submissions by email to Branden. Abstracts of submissions are due by Monday, February 26; notifications of acceptance either as definite presenters or as alternates will be sent out by Friday, April 13.

Those interested in participating, either by presenting papers, responding, or providing tutorials, or in helping with organization, should contact one of the organizers listed below. Limited funds are available for graduate student travel.
