Annual Formal Epistemology Workshops

We are in the process of organizing our third annual formal epistemology workshop (the first and second 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 third workshop is scheduled for 25–28 May 2006 and will be held at University of California at Berkeley. We are now accepting submissions for FEW 2006. Abstracts of submissions are due by 31 January; notifications of acceptance either as definite presenters or as alternates will be sent out by 15 February; full papers will be due by 15 March. If we don't receive full papers by the deadline, we'll turn to the alternates.
