Pittsburgh-Konstanz Colloquium in the Philosophy of Science

A joint undertaking between the Center for Philosophy of Science, University of Pittsburgh, and the Zentrum Philosophie und Wissenschaftstheorie of the University of Konstanz, Germany, the Pittsburgh-Konstanz Colloquium is a series of biennial international conferences that alternate between Pittsburgh and Konstanz. The first meeting, the Carnap-Reichenbach Centennial, was held in 1991 in Konstanz. The second meeting, in Pittsburgh in 1993, was devoted to philosophical problems of the biological sciences.  The sixth Pittsburgh-Konstanz Colloquium was in held Pittsburgh 3 - 6 October 2002.  The topic was Science, Values, and Objectivity. The seventh Pittsburgh-Konstanz Colloquium was held in Konstanz, 26-29 May 2005. The 2005 meeting was entitled Causation: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives.

The Pittsburgh-Konstanz Colloquium is international in two respects. First, it is a cooperative undertaking between Pittsburgh (USA) and Konstanz (Germany). Second, the participants are drawn from around the world, as are those who attend the conferences. The proceedings are published as volumes in the Pittsburgh-Konstanz Series in the Philosophy and History of Science, itself a joint undertaking of the University of Pittsburgh Press and the Universitätsverlag Konstanz.
