Deadline extended to July 31, 2022 - Large-Scale Experiments: Reflecting on Theories and Practices

                International conference Large-Scale Experiments  Reflecting on Theories and
2nd International Conference of the Research Unit The Epistemology of the

Date: December 8-10, 2022
Venue: TRIANGEL Open Space, Karlsruhe, Germany

Large-scale experiments play an increasingly important role in the sciences.
Large collaborations in particle and gravitational-wave physics, large numbers
of research participants in clinical trials, large-scale technologies such as
telescopes and detectors, extensively distributed research tasks in climate
science, or long-term research projects can all be understood as instances of
large-scale research.

The conference aims to bring together researchers from the sciences as well as
from history, philosophy, social studies of science, and neighboring
disciplines to explore the scope and understanding of large-scale research and
experimentation across the sciences, focusing both on theories that underpin
it and practices it consists of.
The conference will comprise invited talks, contributed papers, and symposia
focusing on the following topics:

 Going Large: the Bigger the Riskier? Epistemic Risks in Large Scientific
 Large-Scale Experiments vs. Large-Scale Observations
 Creativity and Constraints in Large-Scale Collaboration
 Theoretical Expectations and Large Experiments
 Big Science and Democracy
 Histories of Large Experiments and their Methodological Challenges

The registration for the conference is open on the webpage. There is no
registration fee.

We invite interested speakers to submit an abstract of 500 words by July 31,
2022, via the conference webpage

The PDF for the call for abstracts is available at
