It is with pleasure that we announce the upcoming 14th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science, a leading congress in its field, which will be held on July 19-26, 2011, in Nancy (France). The Congress will feature more than 50 invited speakers, several plenary symposia and lectures, as well as a general program for a wider audience.

The Congress program will comprise four main sections and seventeen subsections:

A. Logic

A1. Mathematical Logic

A2. Philosophical Logic

A3. Logic and Computation

B. General Philosophy of Science

B1. Methodology and Scientific Reasoning

B2. Ethical Issues in the Philosophy of Science

B3. Historical Aspects in the Philosophy of Science

C. Methodological and Philosophical Issues of Particular Sciences

C1. Logic, Mathematics and Computer Science

C2. Cognitive Science (including Linguistics and Psychology)

C3. Biology

C4. Chemistry

C5. Physics

C6. Medicine

C7. Environmental Sciences

C8. Economics and Social Sciences

D. Methodological and Philosophical Issues in Technology

D1. Methodology of Technology and Engineering

D2. Norms and Values in Technology and Engineering

D3. Models and Modeling in Technology

In close relationship with the importance given to the philosophy of tech­nology in the program structure, and for the first time in its history, the Congress presents a special topic of interest that will be the focus of a series of lectures and symposia:

"Logic and Science Facing the New Technologies"

This presents the opportunity for casting a strong light on an issue of ma­jor importance today, namely: the integration of contemporary technologies in sciences and in society. Questions surrounding this issue are likely to interest the scientific community, as well as a variety of social actors and various part­ners involved in the congress. It is our hope that devoting a series of plenary lectures, symposia and special sessions to this theme will enable philosophers and logicians to help deepen our understanding of the most promising orienta­tions in science and even help promote future advances in human civilization.

Also for the first time, there will be a call for contributed symposia in addition to the call for contributed papers. Both calls will be issued on 1 June 2010, with 31 October 2010 being the submission deadline.

In addition to the scientific program, a series of events for a wider audience will be organized before and during the Congress.
