Probabilistic Causality
July 21 - August 1, 2008


Target Group

The program encourages applications from advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty and researchers in philosophy, physics, economics and computer science. Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered.


Participants are assumed to be familiar with the basic philosophical literature on classical analysis of causation and are expected to possess basic knowledge of classical probability theory. Cross-disciplinary discussions will be facilitated by sessions of short presentations by participants; in the short talks participants can formulate their research topics and solicit comments by faculty and other participants during the summer school.

The language of instruction is English; thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. (In some instances shortlisted applicants may be contacted for a telephone interview.)
