Please find below  some inspiring key words:
-       Science and pseudoscience
-       Challenges imposed by the evolution of scientific practices (e.g. open data, participatory science, publication of negative results)
-       Production of ignorance (scientific expertise, fake news, merchants of doubt, etc.)
-       Scientific values, scientific integrity and evaluation of science
-       Scientific culture (“public understanding of science”)
 
NOTA BENE: any proposal for a contribution on any topic in the field of philosophy of science will be considered.

The meeting is composed of:
(1) Invited speakers: Marion Vorms (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), Jean-Pierre Cléro (Centre Bentham Paris & Université de Rouen), Stephan Lewandowsky (University of Bristol), Guillaume Lecointre (Muséum national d’histoire naturelle), Alan Sokal (New York University & University College London), Brigitte Axelrad (Université de Grenoble, vice-présidente de l'AFIS).
