    The European Philosophy of Science Association calls for proposals for the venue of EPSA25, its 10th Biennial Conference, to be held in the autumn of 2025. The biennial conference is the main scientific event of the EPSA, typically attracting 200-300 philosophers of science from across the world. It usually comprises 200 contributed and symposia talks, organized in as many as eight different sections, and taking place in five or six parallel sessions. A selection of papers from the conference will be published as a special edition of the European Journal for Philosophy of Science.

    The conference is typically hosted by a philosophy of science unit, and its venue must be a recognized European academic or research institution. The event takes place in the autumn over a period of 3-4 days in alternating years to the conference of the Philosophy of Science Association (PSA). Past conferences have taken place in Madrid (2007), Amsterdam (2009), Athens (2011), Helsinki (2013), Düsseldorf (2015), Exeter (2017), Geneva (2019) and Turin (2021). EPSA23 will take place in Belgrade, Serbia.

    A Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is set up at the host institution -- with a remit to organize the event itself. About one year in advance, the Steering Committee (SC) of the EPSA puts out a call for papers and selects a Programme Committee (PC) comprising distinguished philosophers of science. The LOC, SC, and PC are non-overlapping sets of people, with the exception of the Chairs of the LOC and PC, who may be drawn from the SC.

    Proposals (one PDF document) should be submitted to the President of the Association (Prof. Stéphanie Ruphy | email: by November 15, 2023 and must include the following:

    • The name of the organizing unit or research institution.
    • The name of the academic or research institute hosting the event.
    • The proposed dates in the autumn of 2025 (expected to be a long weekend between end of August and end of November 2025).
    • The names of the members of the LOC, including Chair(s) and/or Deputy (please note that the members of the LOC have to be EPSA members).
    • The CV of the Chair(s) of the LOC.
    • An estimated budget proposal, including rough estimates for the following expenses: a) building and facilities, b) catering, c) conference registration packs (200 delegates minimum), d) personnel, e) expected financial contribution by the host institution and/or a funding agency.

    The Steering Committee of EPSA stands, together with other academic societies and scholarly organisations, and the academic world at large, in support of the suffering people of Ukraine and their families and friends all over Europe and elsewhere. We also express our support to Russian colleagues who oppose the war, often at great personal risk.

    Scientific research is only possible through collaborations with our colleagues from across the globe, thereby building on a mutual commitment to and belief in universal human rights, dignity and equality. EPSA will always strive for a plural and diversified research community, which is committed to those values. We reiterate the critical role of science diplomacy in fostering the global endeavours of science and scholarship, and supporting individuals pursuing research, often already under restricted conditions. We must not let war divide us. We therefore call on all universities, institutes, and academic institutions around the world to open their doors to students, researchers, and academics from Ukraine, and advocate for continued cooperation with Russian and Belarusian individual scholars sharing those values.

    We will do our best to alleviate the negative implications of this war for the professional life of our members, and we are committed to assisting international students and scholars leaving zones of conflict in Ukraine. All refugees of war, independent of their passport and race, should receive protection, support and offers of humanitarian assistance. EPSA is currently working towards extending its Fellowship program to include researchers at any level of seniority who have been affected by the war. Opportunities for financial and institutional support will be announced on our website as soon as we confirm participation from potential hosting institutions. For suggestions or inquiries, please write to

    For an updated list of relevant resources and events, please go to the excellent site maintained by the Eastern European Network for Philosophy of Science: 

    The EPSA supports the statement by our colleagues in the Philosophy of Science Association (PSA) and notes their effort to also assist scholars displaced by the war.

    The statement is available in PDF format here.
