CLMPST XVI — 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology
05 Aug 2019 - 16 Sep 2019 • Prague, Czech Republic
Abstract:
The 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (CLMPST) will take place in Prague, August 5-10, 2019, organised under the auspices of the Division for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology of the International Union for History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (DLMPST/IUHPST) by the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The congress has a long history and a unique character, bringing together the communities of logicians, philosophers of logic and philosophers and historians of science and technology. The theme of the 16th edition of the congress is "Bridging across academic cultures". We believe that the communities and societies in both logic and philosophy/history of science are often fragmented and isolated from each other. We want to contribute to redressing this state of things.

Stokes 200 Symposium
15 Sep 2019 - 18 Sep 2019 • Pembroke College, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Pembroke College, Cambridge
Abstract:
A celebration of the remarkable scientific achievements of Sir George Gabriel Stokes two hundred years after his birth. The meeting is to be held at Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he worked, and lived (until he moved just round the corner to Lensfield cottage upon his marriage). Holding the bicentennial of his birth at Pembroke will give people the full Stokes experience: they will enter the College through the entrance he used, they will walk the paths he walked, and eat with both a portrait and a bust of Stokes looking down at them.

TDW 2019 — Tirana Design Week 2019 | Foreseeing Uncertainty: Design and non-normativity
17 Sep 2019 - 29 Sep 2019 • Tirana, Albania
Abstract:
Tirana Design Week (TDW) this year, in 2019, approaches Tirana’s 100th anniversary as the capital of Albania. Comparing photos of a bucolic Tirana in 1920 with what one sees from Polis University’s fourth floor today, inevitably raises doubts about the endurance of design, while conspicuously evincing the fluctuating tendency of what constitutes a norm in a world continuously oscillating between what is desired or imagined as an endogenous equilibrium and exogenous menaces. The objective of Tirana Design Week is to draw current research and design practices, as well as theoretical speculations on the topic of uncertainty and non-normativity in multiple scales and contexts, in and from the city of Tirana, with the latter understood as a dis-position, a tendency to change position.

Klausurwoche: „Bioökonomie und moderne Biotechnologien: Ethische, rechtliche und soziale Aspekte“
23 Sep 2019 - 27 Sep 2019 • Bonn, Germany
Abstract:
Die Klausurwoche gibt exzellenten Nachwuchswissenschaftler/innen aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen die Gelegenheit, eigene Arbeiten und Forschungsvorhaben in den folgenden bioökonomischen Themenbereichen zu präsentieren und intensiv zu diskutieren: Philosophie und Ethik, Landwirtschaft und Ernährung, Natur und Umwelt, Energie und Rohstoffe, Marktmechanismen und Technologietransfer, Recht und Regulierung.

Dabei sollen ethische, rechtliche und soziale Aspekte der Verfahren und Ziele der Bioökonomie ebenso diskutiert werden wie ihre ökologischen und wirtschaftlichen Dimensionen. Für praktische Einblicke sind Exkursionen (u. a. zum FZJ) geplant. Es wird zudem ein Ländervergleich mit den Niederlanden angestrebt, da sowohl mit Blick auf die ökonomische Ausrichtung beider Länder als auch hinsichtlich ihrer normativen Debatten unterschiedliche Schwerpunktsetzungen bestehen. Ergänzt werden die Beiträge der Teilnehmer/innen durch Fachvorträge von ausgewiesenen Expertinnen und Experten.

Interessierte Nachwuchswissenschaftler/innen sind eingeladen, sich mit einem Abstract (400–600 Wörter) und einem kurzen akademischen Lebenslauf bis zum 01.05.2019 unter biooekonomie@drze.de zu bewerben. Die Konferenzsprache ist deutsch; Abstracts und Vorträge werden aber auch in englischer Sprache entgegengenommen. Alle Beiträge zur Klausurwoche werden in einem Tagungsband publiziert, der auch gemeinsam entwickelte Handlungsempfehlungen enthalten soll.

Lecture — The Most Important Experiment in Physics: The Double Slit Experiment
05 Dec 2019 • Lennard Jones Laboratories, Keele University, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics – IOP
Abstract:
The most important experiments in Physics, you can easily reproduce by yourself. This includes Galileo's free fall experiment, Archimedes' buoyancy (Eureka) and Eratosthenes' cast shadow from the Sun at its zenith. One of these timeless breakthroughs of the human mind into the secrets of the Universe - the double-slit experiment - ranks well above all the others, if only because, although equally simple, it still baffles Physicists to this day. It was so subversive by the time Young proposed it that Newton waited for him to die before publishing his Opticks. In this talk, Prof. Laussy will discuss why and what it has to tell us about the World we live in, from whether "things" are waves or particles, to the nature of reality.
Topics:
Lecture starts at 19:00, FREE tea & coffee available. These talks are open to everyone and are sponsored by the West Midlands Branch of the IoP.
