FEW 2010, Konstanz, Sept. 2-4

This is the final call for papers for the Formal Epistemology Workshop next year in Konstanz.  It looks like this year’s FEW will be somewhat smaller than it has been in some years – I remember the second one in particular being quite a marathon, running for something like 8 hours a day for five days!  This one looks like it will be a manageable size, but it will still manage to have a lot of great people working in formal epistemology, including many more Europeans than in years when it was in the US.

The submission deadline is December 31, 2009.  The whole call for papers follows below.
