The Philosophy of Biology at the Mountains (POBAM) workshop is a biennial forum for new work in the philosophy of biology. The workshop provides an opportunity for speakers to receive constructive feedback from interested colleagues, and for other participants to become acquainted with new work in the field. Presented work can be on any topic in the philosophy of biology or biology-oriented philosophy of science.
POBAM began in 2010 as a biennial meeting at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, known then as the Philosophy of Biology at Madison workshop. May 17-18, 2018 will be the first in a series of biennial meetings at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City. Philosophy of Biology at the Mountains will retain a similar format to previous workshops, but will add new elements reflecting its move to the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains and the work of philosophers of biology at the University of Utah.
We welcome submissions on any topic in the philosophy of biology or biology-oriented philosophy of science. Submissions should be on new, unpublished, or recently published work.
Those who would like to present their work at the workshop must submit an abstract of no more than 750 words prepared for blind review. You can submit your abstract through EasyChair at:
Please include a title and short description of your work.
Abstracts are due January 31, 2018.
