Epistemological Perspectives on Simulation 2012

EPOS V Call for Papers

The Fifth Edition of Epistemological Perspectives on Simulation promises to be a productive meeting of minds. Held of the first time outside of Europe, this meeting aims to bring together researchers working on common issues of Computer Simulation, Methodology, and Philosophy of Science from many different angles, making for a truly interdisciplinary opportunity for discussion on the state of the art in this blooming field.

The meeting will take place on the grounds of Trinity University, in San Antonio, Texas, on October 10 – 13, 2012.

Like its predecessors the workshop wants to provide a forum for researchers from various disciplines, such as the social sciences, economics, computer science, engineering or the natural sciences, who are interested in discussing epistemological aspects of simulation across disciplinary boundaries. Philosophers are highly welcome, too.

Topics to be addressed in the workshop include, but are not restricted to issues such as the epistemology of simulation, credentials for model building, and standards for presenting and analyzing simulation results. EPOS V will bring together simulation experts, modelers, scientists and philosophers of science to share the latest advancements in simulation technology, its applications, as well as potential benefits and drawbacks. Like its predecessors, the workshop wants to provide a forum for researchers from various disciplines, such as the social sciences, computer science, engineering or the natural sciences, who are interested in discussing epistemological aspects of simulation across disciplinary boundaries.

Following the tradition of previous EPOS workshops, we will publish a selection of the accepted papers in a special issue of a journal after a further reviewing process. This time, the venue will be a special issue of the International Journal of Agent Technologies and Systems (IJATS).

Important deadlines are as follows:
August 20, 2012: Submission of papers or extended abstracts (Extended Deadline)
September 10, 2012: Notification of acceptance
September 28, 2012: Receipt of full papers
October 10-12, 2012: Workshop, San Antonio, Texas, USA
October 13, 2012: Complementary field trip for participants in the beautiful Texas Hill Country

Hosts: Prof. Dr. Dante Suarez and Prof. Dr. Yu Zhang (Trinity University), Prof. Dr. Klaus G. Troitzsch (University of Koblenz-Landau) and Prof. Dr. Manuel Castañon-Puga (University of Baja California).
