Call for Application

The workshop is aimed especially at undergraduate and graduate students of philosophy or physics, but also at students of other disciplines. Participants will be introduced to the research field of philosophy of physics in lectures and discussion groups. Previous knowledge of physics or philosophy is not required. If interested, participants will also have the opportunity to give their own presentations (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes discussion). For the approximately 20 participants, two overnight stays and possibly part of the travel expenses will be covered. Confirmed speakers: Karen Crowther (Oslo), Klaas Landsman (Nijmegen), Vera Matarese (Perugia), Patricia Palacios (Salzburg), and Manus Visser (Nijmegen). Note: This is an international edition of our workshop, so this time all lectures and discussion groups will be in English.

We look forward to your applications!
