10th ESHS Conference — European Society for the History of Science
07 Sep 2022 - 10 Sep 2022 • Brussels, Belgium
Organizer:
European Society for the History of Science (ESHS)
Abstract:
The Tenth Conference of the European Society for the History of Science (ESHS) will take place in Brussels (Belgium), from 7 to 10 September 2022. The theme will be Science Policy and the Politics of Science. The venue in and of itself supports the theme of the conference. Since the foundation of the Royal Academy of Science, Letters, and Fine Arts of Belgium in 1772, Brussels has been the home and venue of significant scientific institutions, from the Solvay Conferences in Physics and Chemistry to the European Commission and Research Council, which have shaped the present state of the sciences as well as their impact on our world. From a historiographical perspective, this will be an opportunity to showcase new histories of scientific institutions and modes of knowledge, networks, and nodes.

CICM 2022 — 15th Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics
19 Sep 2022 - 23 Sep 2022 • Tbilisi – hybrid, Georgia
Abstract:
Digital and computational solutions are becoming the prevalent means for the generation, communication, processing, storage and curation of mathematical information. Separate communities have developed to investigate and build computer based systems for computer algebra, automated deduction, and mathematical publishing as well as novel user interfaces. While all of these systems excel in their own right, their integration can lead to synergies offering significant added value. The Conference on Intelligent Computer Mathematics (CICM) offers a venue for discussing and developing solutions to the great challenges posed by the integration of these diverse areas.
Topics:
CICM 2022 will be a part of the Computational Logic Autumn Summit, CLAS 2022

CSS 2022 — Cosmology on Small Scales 2022: Dark Energy and the Local Hubble Expansion Problem
21 Sep 2022 - 24 Sep 2022 • Prague, Czech Republic
Organizer:
Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences
Abstract:
One hundred years ago, Russian mathematician and physicist Alexander A. Friedmann applied the system of Einstein equations to the hypersphere with a time varying radius. In this way, he obtained a nonlinear ordinary differential equation which is called the Friedmann equation after him and serves now as a cornerstone of the standard cosmological model. Unfortunately, it is well known that this model exhibits a number of paradoxes. The main goal of the CSS 2022 conference is to discuss whether and how the Friedmann equation can be applied at various spatial scales, from our local cosmic neighborhood up to the whole Universe; and if the existence of dark matter and dark energy are merely artifacts of excessive extrapolations. So, it is timely to gather specialists from various branches of astronomy and astrophysics to discuss these issues.

Topics:
Conference topics: Mathematical aspects of the extrapolations used in cosmology, Arguments for and against dark energy, and revisiting the foundations of physics, Alternative models for dark matter and dark energy, A systematic discord in the value of the Hubble constant derived by different methods, Theoretical possibility and observational evidence for small-scale cosmological effects, Quantum effects on the early Universe and their observational imprints at the present time.

International Conference: Hypothesis in science. — The 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus
19 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022 • Torun, Poland
Organizer:
The Italian Society for Logic and the Philosophy of Science
Abstract:
Our conference aims to address the role of hypothetical thinking in the formulation and development of scientific theories and models.Next year will mark the 550th anniversary of the birth of Nicolaus Copernicus. We think that it would be highly pertinent to discuss how our understanding of the role of hypotheses has changed since his time. Is the use of hypotheses still viable in current science, or has it been superseded by other scientific concepts or methods? The aim of our conference is to contribute to the dialogue between scientists, historians of science, philosophers of science, and logicians interested in scientific methods of reasoning.
Topics:
Philosophical Perspectives on Sciences

CFP — IDENTIDADES EN RIESGO: PROPIEDAD, ATRIBUCIÓN Y APROPIACIÓN
20 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022 • Madrid, Spain
Organizer:
Complutense University of Madrid
Abstract:
Existe en la noción de identidad personal una tensión no resuelta. Por un lado, parece que tenemos la autoridad de la primera persona, de tal manera que cada cual tiene la última palabra acerca de quién es. Pero dicha autoridad corre el riesgo de llevarnos al solipsismo o, incluso, al delirio: “Yo sé quién soy”, dice Don Quijote, “y sé que puedo ser, no solo los que he dicho, sino todos los Doce Pares de Francia, y aun todos los nueve de la Fama, pues a todas las hazañas que ellos todos juntos y cada uno por sí hicieron se aventajarán las mías”. Este problema se suele denominar como “el problema del egocentrismo”.
