Subject: Workshop: Epistemology of Analogue Simulation, University of Geneva, 10 September 2019 Epistemology of Analogue Simulation University of Geneva Tuesday 10 September 9:30am to 5:30pm We are pleased to announce registrations are now open for the workshop "Epistemology of Analogue Simulation" to be held at the University of Geneva on 10 September, 2019. The workshop is jointly organised by the University of Queensland and the University of Geneva. This workshop is open for all to attend. Registration is free, but required for catering purposes. Please register here: (https://philevents.org/event/show/74874). Confirmed speakers: Florian Boge (Aachen), Grace Field (Cambridge), Sean Gryb (Groningen), Dominik Hangleiter (FU Berlin), Michal Hladky (Geneva), Francesco Nappo (UNC, Chapel Hill), and Patricia Palacios (Salzburg). Analogue simulation techniques have taken on increasing significance in experimental science in recent years. In particular, analogue black hole experiments appear to provide insight into black hole phenomena, such as Hawking radiation, and analogue quantum simulation appears to provide a powerful computational tool for analysing intractable quantum systems. This workshop aims to explore the epistemology of analogue simulation, considering (but not limited to) the following sorts of questions: What epistemic license does analogue simulation warrant? In what ways, if at all, does the epistemology of analogue simulation differ from conventional experiment or computer simulation? In what ways, if at all, is the epistemology of analogue quantum simulation idiosyncratic compared to other forms of analogue simulation? The workshop venue is room M1150, Department of Philosophy, Rue De-Candolle 2, 1205 Geneva. All questions concerning the workshop should be directed to the workshop convenors: Peter Evans (University of Queensland): firstname.lastname@example.org Karen Crowther (University of Geneva): email@example.com Dr Peter W.
