** New submission deadline for symposia and individual contributions: February 5, 2023 **

Aims and Scope

As in previous editions, CLMPST 2023 aims to foster connections between the research fields of history of science and technology and philosophy of science and technology, as well as research studying the foundations and methodology of science and technology. We are looking forward to having papers and symposia on all topics pertaining to our fields, from mathematical logic to metaphilosophy, from the foundations of the exact sciences to the philosophy of the social sciences, presented by researchers from all regions and cultures of the world.

  • B.6 Historical Aspects in the Philosophy of Science
  • B.7 Educational Aspects of Philosophy of Science

C. Philosophical Issues of Particular Disciplines

  • C.1 Philosophy of the Formal Sciences (including Logic, Mathematics, Statistics)
  • C.2 Philosophy of the Physical Sciences (including Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science, Climate Science)
  • C.3. Philosophy of the Biological Sciences
  • C.4 Philosophy of the Biomedical and Health Sciences

The language of the congress is English.

Contributed papers

Submissions will be made through the EasyChair platform, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clmpst2023

Please submit an abstract of 500 words, including the references, prepared for anonymous review. Indicate to which congress section you submit the paper (tick the appropriate box). The allocated time for each contributed paper is 30 minutes, including discussion.

Contributed symposia

Symposia are groups of talks on a common theme. Each symposium consists of four to twelve papers.

In EasyChair – https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=clmpst2023 – please make a submission for (a) the symposium as a whole; and (b) each paper in the symposium (so, for example, for a four-paper symposium, you should make a total of five submissions).

(a) For the symposium as a whole, please provide an abstract with a general description of the format and the topic of the proposed symposium and its significance (up to 500 words), and suggest a symposium chair. Indicate to which congress section you submit the symposium (tick the appropriate box). After the abstract, please list the titles of the talks in the order they should appear at the conference. Please provide the symposium with an acronym, and write this acronym at the beginning of the title of the symposium (<Symposium acronym>: <Title of symposium>). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference programme.

(b) For each paper within a symposium, please submit a 500-word abstract (including references). Indicate to which congress section the symposium belongs (tick the appropriate box). Please write the acronym of the symposium at the beginning of the title of the talk (<Symposium acronym>: <Title of the individual talk>). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference program.

Note to symposium organisers: papers intended to be presented as parts of a symposium must be submitted by their respective authors. Symposium organisers should contact all symposium speakers in advance and make sure that they submit their abstracts by the submission deadline of 05 February 2023. The symposium description is submitted by the symposium organiser by the same deadline. Please make sure that all parts of the submission are prepared for anonymous review and submitted to the same congress section (the same box is ticked in all of them). When submitting a symposium proposal, the EasyChair requires you to take the role of a “speaker“. This is for formal reasons only, and in no way precludes you from submitting a paper of your own (to that same symposium, to a different symposium, or a contributed paper). In this case, you will appear as a “speaker“ on 2 submissions, one of which must be the symposium proposal.

Although the exact format of symposia is up to the symposium organizers, the allocated time for each symposium paper is 30 minutes. For instance, a symposium with 4 speakers is a 2 hour session (4 x 30 minutes). Note that if a symposium consists of more than 4 speakers, it might be split into two sessions due to coffee breaks in the programme.

Rules for multiple presentations

(a) Every corresponding author is allowed to submit only one individual or symposium paper as a “speaker”. (Organising a symposium does not count as being a “speaker”, despite the labelling in EasyChair.)

(b) Authors are permitted to be listed as non-corresponding co-authors of additional papers.

(c) The corresponding author of each paper as well as the organiser of a symposium must be registered as a participant at the Congress and present the paper in Buenos Aires.


All questions about submissions should be directed to the Congress Secretaries, Prof. Federico Pailos and Prof. Luis Urtubey, at secretariosclmpst2023@gmail.com
