17th CLMPST: Science and Values in an Uncertain World

Welcome to CLMPST-2023, the 17th edition of the International Congress on Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology.

CLMPST is the premier forum on Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in this broad field. The International Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (CLMPST) is organized under the auspices of the Division of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology(DLMPST/IUHPST).

CLMPST has a long history — it started in 1960, and is held every four years since then in capital cities and/or by famous university centres. Recent previous CLMPST Congresses were held in Prague (2019), Helsinki (2015), Nancy (2011), and Beijing (2007). The 2023 edition will take place in Buenos Aires.

In this edition of the congress the theme is Science and Values in an Uncertain World. CLMPST 2023 takes place in a world that, in many ways, is quite different from the one we knew just a few years ago. The 2020 pandemic questioned our sense of security reminding us we live in a fragile environment with an uncertain future. The challenges of our time, from the pandemics to climate change, make it particularly appropriate to ponder on the role of values in science and technology, from the ethics of empirical research and scientific communication, to the design of public policies that need the weighing of scientific evidence; from discussions on biases in the design of algorithms, to reflections on the responsible development of Artificial Intelligence.

We invite papers and symposia on all topics pertaining to our fields, presented by researchers from all regions and cultures of our academic world.
