We welcome submissions of abstracts for individual papers or symposia on any topic in the philosophy of the social sciences and related fields, and especially those that tackle philosophical issues as they arise in, and are consequential for, practicing social scientists.  The format will be a two-and-a-half day program of workshop-style sessions in order to facilitate intensive discussion.

Select papers from the conference may be published in a special issue of the journal Philosophy of the Social Sciences.
