********************************************************************** 
 
GENERAL INFORMATION 
 
>From Thursday 17 to Saturday 19 May 2001 (three days) the 
International Conference "MODEL-BASED REASONING. SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY,
TECNOLOGICAL INNOVATION, VALUES" will be held at the University of 
Pavia (near Milan, Italy). 
 

PROGRAM  

The conference will deal with the logical, epistemological, and 
cognitive aspects of modeling practices employed in scientific 
discovery and technological innovation, including computational
models of such practices. Abduction is widely recognized as a 
significant reasoning process in discovery whose features are 
in need of explication. We will solicit papers that examine various
forms of model-based reasoning, such as analogical and visual 
modeling, from philosophical, historical, sociological, psychological,
or computational perspectives. We also plan to address the problem 
of model-based reasoning in ethics reasoning, especially pertaining
to science and technology. 
 

RELEVANT RESEARCH AREAS  
 
We shall call for papers that cover topics from the following list:   
   
- abduction   
- analogical reasoning    
- causal and counterfactual reasoning in model construction
- computational models of model-based reasoning and scientific reasoning 
- conceptual combination and theory formation   
- hypothetical and explanatory reasoning   
- logical analyses that may contribute to our understanding 
  of the issues in model-based reasoning   
- model-based reasoning in ethics
- models and manipulative reasoning  
- models and technological innovation
- thought experimenting   
- visual, spatial, imagistic modeling, reasoning, and simulation  

 
 
SUBMISSIONS OF PAPERS 
 
All submitted papers will be carefully refereed. The precise format 
of the conference will be fixed after we have an idea of the number of 
accepted papers. We are thinking in terms of presentations of 40 and 
20 minutes. The funding is Italian and US, but we are also looking
elsewhere 
for further financing (and would appreciate any suggestions).  
A selected subset will be invited for inclusion (subject to refereeing)
in a book which will constitute an advanced handbook for scientists
and researchers. The book will be published by an international
publishing house. Moreover another selected subset will be invited 
for inclusion (subject to refereeing) in special issues of suitable 
international Journals. 
 

FORMAT 
 
Authors must submit three printed copies and an electronic version
- formatted in Microsoft Word, RTF, PDF, or Postcript format -
of an extended abstract (about 1000 words) not later than 

November  30, 2000.

Please send electronically the extended abstract 
to the program chair at the address
