    KARL POPPER 2002

    Wednesday, 3 July 2002 - Sunday, 7 July 2002


    The international Congress planned to celebrate the 100th anniversary
    of the birth of Karl Popper (1902-1994) will open officially under the
    patronage of the President of Austria Dr Thomas Klestil in the late
    afternoon of Wednesday 3 July 2002 and close in the late afternoon of
    Sunday 7 July 2002. Meetings will be held at the campus and in the
    main building of the University of Vienna, and in the City Hall (Rathaus),
    which is adjacent to the University main building.

    The work of the Congress will be arranged in seven sections.

    1 Philosophy of the physical sciences
    2 Philosophy of the biological sciences
    3 Philosophy of the social sciences
    4 Moral & political philosophy
    5 Logic & scientific method
    6 Epistemology & metaphysics
    7 Life & times of Karl Popper

    Invited lectures and symposia are planned for all sections. Contributed
    papers relevant to Popper's work will be invited in all sections (though
    papers tackling problems appropriate to more than one section will be
    welcome). Potential contributors are asked to bear in mind that a period
    of 30 minutes will be allotted to each contributed paper, including
    discussion. Full details of the form in which abstracts are to be
    submitted will be provided in the official Call for Papers, which will
    be circulated late in the summer of 2001 together with registration and
    hotel booking forms. The deadline for the submission of abstracts will
    be early in 2002. All abstracts will be refereed. Letters of acceptance
    will be mailed not later than 1 April 2002. The Congress languages are
    English and German.
