       Seventh Young Researchers Days in
  Logic, Philosophy and History of Science

When & where:

YRD7 is an online event held on 23 and 24 September 2021.

ims and scope

For almost one decade and a half, two Belgian scientific societies seeking to promote research in History of Science, Philosophy of Science and Logic, namely the National Committee for Logics, History and Philosophy of Science (NCLHPhS) and the Belgian Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science (BSLPS) have co-organized biennial Young Researchers Days. Through open call proposals, we typically invite about 20 young researchers in these three fields to present their work and engage in communal question rounds. As usual, the YRD will provide an ideal opportunity for young researchers, i.e. PhD students and postdocs, working in the fields of Logic, Philosophy of Science and History of Science at Belgian Universities to present their work to a larger community of emerging and established scholars in these fields. Young researchers outside of Belgium are invited to submit, but priority will be given to Belgian young researchers.
