*Philosophy of Science in a Forest 2016 (PSF 2016)*
This conference is intended for an academic audience working or
interested in philosophy of science in the broadest possible sense.
Every three years, the Dutch Society for the Philosophy of Science
(DSPS; in Dutch: Nederlandse Vereniging voor Wetenschapsfilosofie,
NVWF), organises this interational conference. The original idea was to
collect everybody in one place who is active in this area of philosophy
at an academic level (PhD-students, professors, lecturers, readers,
post-docs) in the Netherlands and Flanders and retreat in a forest. The
first edition of *Philosophy of Science in a Forest*, Spring 2010, was
the first having English as the conference language. Contributions in
the Dutch language remain however possible. Contributions from all over
the world are now very welcome. Warning: there are no travel funds
*Location:*Conference Centre Kaap Doorn, near to Utrecht. Registration
is already possible (with various options to choose from):
*Confrence Dates:* Thursday 19 May, 13:00 hours until Saturday 21 May,
On Friday evening 20 May, the General Assemblee of the DSPS will take place.
