The School aims to offer a broad range of seminars and hands-on lessons by experts in formal epistemology, philosophy of statistics, philosophy of science and game theory in order to address foundational questions in the sciences from new perspectives, with a special focus on formal models of social interactions and scientific inference.
In particular, students will attend to both theoretical lectures held by distinguished scholars in the fields and classes offering tutorials on formal methods and tools, as well as extensive overviews on the school related topics. Each of the school threads will be covered by interactive group work, exercises, and one-to-one sessions, which will provide attendees with the opportunity to deepen their proficiency in a particular topic of interest.
A special attention will be devoted this year also to evidence in legal settings and the forensic sciences (medical forensics, statistical forensics, computational and digital forensics, litigation science, etc.).
In-depth lectures will be given on: Bayesian Philosophy of Science, Foundations of Statistics, Bayesian Statistics, Forensic Sciences, Epistemic Game Theory, Probability.
The School will include participation to the Bayes By the Sea Conference (24 - 25 July 2020).
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for a contributing paper.
A rich calendar of social activities will complement the fun!
