Proof of Concept Sessions

The proof of concept sessions present new approaches to classical problems, often transferred from different (sub)disciplines (e.g., statistics, game theory, ethics). Their goal is to enrich the set of methods and techniques in formal epistemology and to bring them to the attention of a wider audience.
