Topoi conference and special issue
INTENTIONS: PHILOSOPHICAL AND EMPIRICAL ISSUES

In analogy with the journal format, each conference will focus on a specific theme (topos), and contributions presented to the conference will later appear in an issue of the journal dedicated to the same topic.
The conference booklet is available for download, including the programme, all abstracts, and practical information on the conference (please make sure to get the latest and most updated version, by checking this website just few days before the conference).
