September 2016.
University of Belgrade
Belgrade, Serbia
Organized by
the
Department of Philosophy,
Faculty of Philosophy,
University of Belgrade
,
and the
Center for the Studies of Bioethics
, Belgrade
This conference
series
is intended to give a home to philosophical interests in, and concerns about,
scientific
experiment
ation
.
The fifth
conference will focus on philosophical exploration of various
aspects of the relationship between experimentation
and policy
.
For instance,
a
re
there epistemically
optimal ways of organizing a scientific laboratory? Is there a set of policies
concerning division of
cognitive labor
that can ensure
that
small,
large, or
mega
laboratories produce
relevant scientific
knowledge in the most efficie
nt way
? Recent philosophical studies have addressed these and similar
questions and produced interesting results, often with the help of computer simulati
ons and
quantitative methods of
analysis.
Also
i
n biomedical
and related
sciences
the conduct of
exper
iments
and data they produce
often raise a number of dilemmas relevant to
public
policy decisions.
Philosophical approaches to such dilemmas may have far
-
reaching consequences.
Submissions
of abstracts
on any aspect of
the
relationship between policy and experiments are
welcome. They
should be in the form of an extended abstract (1000 words) submitted through
EasyChair (
https://easychair.org/conferences/?
