Department of Philosophy and History of Science, University of Athens, Greece
March 15-18, 2012

Keynote speakers:
Jed Z. Buchwald (California Institute of Technology)

Call for Papers

We invite the submission of individual paper abstracts for &HPS4, the fourth of a series of international conferences under the general heading of "Integrated History and Philosophy of Science". We solicit contributions that exemplify the combination of historical and philosophical analysis of science or discuss the possibilities and merits of integrated HPS as a scholarly endeavor. In light of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Thomas Kuhn’s Structure of Scientific Revolutions, we also welcome submissions that discuss Kuhn’s classic and its continuing relevance for integrating HPS.
Proposals for papers (in either word or pdf format) should include:

bullet Title and abstract of the paper. In order to enable the program committee to make more informed desicions, we request abstracts on the order of 1000 words. If you are aware of other submitters whose work might well be grouped with yours in a symposium session, please alert us to that fact.

bullet Address of the participant, including e-mail, phone, and institution

The deadline for submission of abstracts for &HPS4 is September 1, 2011.
Decisions will be announced by October 31, 2011.
Please direct your submissions to: andhps@phs.uoa.gr
