Time and Causality in the Sciences (TaCitS)
June 7-9, 2017
Stevens Institute of Technology Hoboken, NJ


The Causality in the Sciences conference series brings together philosophers
and scientists to explore various aspects of causality. This 12th conference
in the series will focus on the relationship between time and causality.

The conference will explore all facets of the relationship between time and
causality across philosophy, computation, and specific scientific disciplines.
Some key themes include: arrow of time * causal inference from time series
data * role of time in causal perception and judgment * time and causal
metaphysics * applications to longitudinal datasets

Abstracts should be no more than 500 words, submitted via easychair:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tacits2017

Important dates:
March 15 - Submission
April 15 - Notification of acceptance

Organizers: Samantha Kleinberg (Stevens), Michael Strevens (NYU)

Steering Committee: Phyllis Illari (UCL), Bert Leuridan (University of
Antwerp), Julian Reiss, (Durham), Federica Russo (UvA), Erik Weber (Ghent) Jon
Williamson (Kent)



In light of the chaos and fear caused for travel to the US by the possible
immigration ban, and resulting calls to boycott US conferences, we have
discussed whether we should go ahead with TaCits NY in June
http://tacits.stevens.edu/ <http://tacits.stevens.edu/>. Given the work
already put in by local organisers, and the fact that US academics would also
appreciate support just now, we have decided to continue.

We are, however, very aware that some people may be unable or unwilling to
travel to the conference. We ask that citizens of countries who wish to
submit abstracts, but are potentially affected by the ban, get in touch with
us, so that we can see whether it is possible to make any arrangements for
some kind of remote access. We know that this is at best a half-solution, and
apologise for that.

All the very best,
Causality in the Sciences steering committee
