Subject: Metaphysics of Science Summer School (MoSSS) & Workshop, Helsinki, July 22-26
There are only a handful of spots remaining for MoSSS, so act quickly to avoid disappointment!
Further to the original, advert (below), I should clarify one thing about the CFP: you can send your application to attend MoSSS any time, but the CFP for the five speaker slots in the final workshop runs parallel to this. I can assure full consideration for all abstracts received by January 15, 2015. But if you don’t have a spot at the summer school, you can’t present at the workshop, so make sure to apply for a spot at MoSSS first!
