Conference on
Algorithms and Complexity in Mathematics, Epistemology and Science (ACMES)

London, Ontario, Canada, May 6-8, 2015


Philosophers of science are of course concerned with the reliability of
scientific inference and the use of mathematical models throughout
scientific practice. Increasingly, philosophers are becoming concerned
with the reliability of the methods of computation scientific methods
rely upon. This conference seeks a richer understanding by blending talks
by philosophers of science with talks by computational scientists, who
have developed many tools and techniques for the assessment of reliability.

We invite contributions to the study of reliability of methods of
scientific modeling, computing, and inference. Works in progress and
completed research projects are both acceptable.

Graduate students are particularly encouraged to contribute and attend.

ACMES will be held at Western University in London, ON, Canada from
May 6-8 2015 and will be held in conjunction with Southern Ontario
Numerical Analysis Day (SONAD).
