Submission Deadline Approaching for AM-Nat Biology Conference

Spread the love

If you are interested in submitting a paper for the Alternatives to Methodological Naturalism in Biology online conference, the deadline is fast approaching!

Abstract submission information is here. Note that the conference is entirely online, so you can present from anywhere in the world where you have an Internet connection. In our last conference, we had participants from Israel, Spain, Iceland, the U.S., and other locations all meeting together at once.

By the way, if you would like to see the previous conference, most of it is available online here.

The original AM-Nat conference covered a variety of disciplines, including psychology, computer science, economics, linguistics, biology, and philosophy. This conference is focused specifically on biology, though some exception may be made for interesting submissions in other categories.

Let me know if you have any questions.

    Will Susan Mazur be covering this conference?

    No idea. She did not cover our last conference (at least that I am aware of). Why?

    OT: Dr Michael G Strauss has started a new blog. He is an ID advocate. Perhaps some from UD might wish him well?

    johnnyb – I think Seversky’s comment was tongue in cheek.

    FWIW I think it’s great that you’re organising these virtual conferences, and hopefully developing a community of scholars.

    BTW, what are the dates for the conference? It’s not mentioned on the call, on the schedule it’s November 19th (but no year given), and elsewhere it’s advertised as February 25th. There are also calls to register now to receive discounts, but I can’t find any information about price.

    Bob –

    Thanks for the comments! Keeping up with a website is not my best attribute 🙂 The conference is the 25th. I’m updating those pages now. It was originally scheduled for November 19th, but getting the proceedings of the last conference together was taking up too much time. Since I don’t get paid for this, I didn’t have time to do both (the proceedings of the previous conference should be out in a few weeks).

    Well, partly. I see Mazur as sort of the Arthur Daley of science journalism – always on the lookout for a dodgy paradigm that needs shifting. And let’s face it, any publicity has to be a good thing. Look at what she did for that Royal Society meeting. How many of those generate that kind of heat these days?
