CfA: "Russell 150" conference, University of Bucharest, November 4-5, 2022 (mixed format)

The "Russell 150" conference is organized in partnership between the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Bucharest (through its Department for Theoretical Philosophy and the Center for Logic, Philosophy and History of Science) and the Romanian Academy's "Constantin Rădulescu-Motru" Institute of Philosophy and Psychology.

The event is scheduled to take place November 4-5, 2022. It will have a mixed format, in that speakers may choose whether they present online only, or face to face at the event's location (if so, their session will enjoy a live audience, but it will also be streamed to remote participants).

Professors Mircea Dumitru and Ilie Pârvu (University of Bucharest, Romanian Academy), Constantin Stoenescu, Sorin Costreie, Gheorghe Ştefanov (all at the University of Bucharest), James Cargile (University of Virginia), Mark Sainsbury (University of Texas at Austin), Angela Mendelovici (Western University), Gregory Lavers (Concordia University), and Andrei Moldovan (University of Salamanca) have already kindly agreed to give talks in the conference.

The submitted abstract should be included as a .pdf or .docx attachment to your message, and should be less than 300 words.Your personal data (name, affiliation, email, preference for online or face-to-face presentation) should be included in the body of the message. Please keep the attached file's metadata, title and abstract anonymous in order to ensure blind review.
