    A final message from your Student Representatives, Bobby and Stéphanie: With our time as your EPSA representatives having drawn to a close, we are looking for two new representatives who will continue to advocate for the interests of EPSA’s junior scholar community.

    During the last two years we were able to successfully carry on, in collaboration with the Steering Committee, the EPSA Fellowship Programme (facilitating research visits for Eastern-European scholars at academic institutes across Europe) and the Mentoring Scheme (enabling junior scholars to receive support in a variety of academic-related matters). Moreover, we launched several new initiatives of our own, including:

    • the organization of online social gatherings in the leadup to the EPSA2023 conference,
    • the revitalization of the “Philosophy of Science in Europe” newsletter,
    • a PhD students' round table during EPSA2023,
    • a dedicated section on the EPSA website for PhD student portraits,
    • an informal meeting in a bar during EPSA2023 that attracted around 50 participants.

    These events not only facilitated meaningful exchanges between junior scholars, but also provided valuable opportunities for collaboration within the philosophical community.

    Lastly, the Steering Committee has agreed to the organization of an academic event centred on highlighting the plurality of intellectual traditions in philosophy of science in Europe, on which Bobby will continue to work with the Steering Committee in the months to come (further details TBA in the near future).

    We warmly invite all those who held student status during the EPSA23 conference and who are interested in providing help and support to the EPSA junior scholar community to apply for the EPSA Student Representative positions. As Student Reps you will be able to propose new initiatives, help carry on existing projects, represent the interests of PhD students and junior scholars (broadly construed), and convey any questions, comments, and other forms of feedback from junior scholars to the Steering Committee. Please note that it is *not* required for applicants to hold student status for the entire two-year duration of the Student Representative position.

    Your application should contain your name, current affiliation, and a short (up to 150 words) bio mentioning any activities/initiatives that you would like to put forward as the next EPSA Student Rep. Please send your applications directly to

    You can submit your application until Thursday 8 February 2024.

    The next two EPSA Student Representatives will be elected in online voting which will be held after the list of applicants is closed.

    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.
