Now I've seen everything

Received this in my inbox this morning:


Call for Papers: pdf version here
Location: Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), The Netherlands
Date: October 29-31, 2007 (Monday-Wednesday)

Theme: Engineering Meets Philosophy, and Philosophy Meets Engineering
On October 19, 2006 a working group on Philosophy and Engineering was convened at MIT to discuss the need for greater interaction between philosophers and engineers. The result was an agreement to move forward with a workshop to encourage reflection on engineering, engineers, and technology by philosophers and engineers.

The first Workshop on Philosophy & Engineering (WPE-2007) will be held in the Department of Philosophy, TUDelft, 29-31 October 2007 (Monday-Wednesday). Sessions will include talks by invited and selected speakers as well as a number of special sessions.

Extended abstracts (1-2 pages) are invited for submission in one of three tracks or demes:

* Philosophy (Deme chair: Carl Mitcham)
* Philosophical Reflections of Practitioners (Deme chair: Billy V. Koen)
* Ethics (Deme co-chairs: Michael Davis & P. Aarne Vesilind)

I can just picture the keynote address: "So . . . um . . . how about those Eagles on the weekend?"
