Call for Abstracts: 12th Principia International Symposium: Models and Modeling in the Sciences

 Every two years since 1999 the Epistemology and Logic Research Group of the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil, organizes the Principia International Symposium. The initial idea was to bring together the community of our journal, also called Principia, but the meetings have grown and we can say that it is nowadays one of the greatest philosophical meetings in South America.

This time our main topic will be "Models and Modeling in the Sciences". As usual, we are also planning to have parallel sessions on the topics that are dear to our journal, such as epistemology, logic, philosophy of language, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethics and applied ethics, history and philosophy of science (even in non-model approaches).

Because our finest models suggest uncertain sanitary conditions in consequence of the CoViD-19 pandemics, the 12th Principia International Symposium will be held completely online. It is sad that we won't be able to meet in person in our beautiful Florianópolis this year, but the symposium's academic exchange is very important for our community. We are planning some strategies to minimize the distance of online interactions.
