The 2010 Synthese Conference:  Announcement and Call for Papers

On April 15th and 16th of 2010, the Synthese Conference will take place at 
Columbia University.  The 2010 edition of the Synthese Conference will 
focus on the theme of epistemology and economics.   Recent years have seen 
an increasing amount of interaction between epistemology and economics: 
traditional topics in epistemology, such as the analysis of knowledge, 
have found a significant role in the study of interactive decision making, 
while traditional topics in economics, such as the analysis of 
rationality, now figure prominently into certain areas of epistemology. 
We anticipate that the conference program will include slots for five 
invited papers and at least five contributed papers.  Every paper that is 
presented at the conference will be considered for the special issue of 
Synthese that will be based on the conference theme of epistemology and 
economics.  The list of invited speakers is still being finalized.  In the 
meantime, we encourage submissions for the contributed slots.  Submissions 
should be relevant to the conference theme of epistemology and economics, 
broadly construed, and should satisfy the usual guidelines for submissions 
to Synthese.  Submissions for the contributed slots must be received no 
later than February 1, 2010.  Notifications of acceptance will be made by 
February 20, 2010.  All submissions should be sent to 
synthese.conference.2010@gmail.com .

The Synthese Editors-in-Chief: Johan van Benthem, Vincent F. Hendricks and 
John Symons

The Local Organizing Committee: John Collins, Haim Gaifman, Jeff Helzner
