devoted to the work of Nelson Goodman.

The four areas in which it is possible to submit are:

They will examine the proposals  (500-600 words, without the name of the author in the text) sent to this address:

Communications will last 25 minutes followed by 15 minutes of discussion

Proposals must be submitted by February 1, 2014.

Languages of the conference are French, English and German.

Authors of accepted  proposals will be in charge of their travel and housing, but the lunches and the conference dinner will be offered by the organizers.
