Free summer school at Carnegie Mellon


Carnegie Mellon Summer School in Logic and Formal Epistemology

In the summer of 2010, the Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon
University will hold a three-week summer school in logic and formal
epistemology for promising undergraduates in philosophy, mathematics,
computer science, linguistics, and other sciences.

The goals are to

o introduce students to cross-disciplinary fields of research at an
early stage in their career; and
o forge lasting links between the various disciplines.

The summer school will be held from Monday, June 7 to Friday, June 25,
2010. There will be morning and afternoon lectures and daily problem
sessions, as well as outings and social events.

The summer school is free. That is, we will provide

o full tuition, and
o dormitory accommodations on the Carnegie Mellon campus.

So students need only pay round trip travel to Pittsburgh and living
expenses while there. There are no grades, and the courses do not
provide formal course credit.

Instructions for applying can be found on the summer school web page,

Materials must be received by the Philosophy Department by March 15,

This year’s topics are:

Logic and Scientific Inquiry
Monday, June 7 to Friday, June 11
Instructor: Clark Glymour

Computability and Foundations
Monday, June 14 to Friday, June 18
Instructor: Wilfried Sieg

Philosophical Logic and Formal Epistemology
Monday, June 21 to Friday, June 25
Instructor: Horacio Arlo-Costa

The summer school is open to undergraduates, as well as to students
who will have just completed their first year of graduate school.
Applicants need not be US citizens. There is a $20 nonrefundable
application fee.

Inquiries may be directed to Jeremy Avigad (
