The Department of Science Communication and Higher Education Research is hosting the 9th Models and Simulations Conference (MS9) at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria.
This continues a successful series of meetings focusing on the role of modeling, simulation, and computational approaches in the natural and social sciences, in medicine, engineering, and technology. The MS Conferences’ core constituency are philosophers, historians, and sociologists of science (respectively HPS and STS scholars) with an interest in models and simulations. At the same time, we warmly welcome practicing scholars, i.e. colleagues who model or simulate in their own research. Participants thus represent different disciplinary, theoretical and empirical approaches, which is one of the special attractions of the MS Conferences and leads to lively discussion. Earlier meetings have taken place in Paris (2006), Tilburg (2007), Virginia (2009), Toronto (2010), Helsinki (2012), Notre Dame (2014), Barcelona (2016), and Columbia (2018).
The Call for Abstracts as well as information on registration, travel, and accommodation will be available soon.
