Irvine - Florence Program
LPS and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Florence have been cooperating and sponsoring joint workshops since 2006. The arrangement is the natural outgrowth of shared research interests among faculty in the two departments. It has been formalized in a cooperation agreement signed by the Rector of the University of Florence and the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost of the University of California, Irvine.
There have been three Irvine-Florence ("IF") workshops so far:
- 3rd Irvine-Florence Colloquium on Logic and Philosophy of Science (September 18 - 19, 2008)
- 2nd Irvine-Florence Colloquium on Logic and Philosophy of Science (March 23 - 24, 2007)
- 1st Irvine-Florence Colloquium on Logic and Philosophy of Science (March 31 - April 1, 2006)
Faculty, post-docs, and graduate students participate in these workshops; all have the opportunity to present and discuss their research.
Irvine - Salzburg Program
LPS and the Department of Philosophy jointly administer an Exchange Program with the University of Salzburg. It provides opportunities for faculty and graduate students in LPS and Philosophy to visit Salzburg, and for faculty and graduate students from Salzburg to visit one or the other of the Irvine units.
To be eligible for the Salzburg Exchange, a graduate student must have advanced to candidacy. If selected, the student spends one semester in Salzburg, usually teaching one course in the general area of his or her thesis topic. An upper division course may be taught in English, but lower division courses must be taught in German. (Some previous visitors have learned serviceable German by attending a Goethe institute during the preceding summer.) Typically, a Salzburg visitor will receive a Salzburg Fellowship intended to cover travel expenses, and a stipend; those who teach while in Salzburg will also receive a salary intended to cover living expenses (including health and dental insurance).
Applications from LPS graduate students (including a curriculum vita and syllabi for courses that might be taught) should be sent to the LPS Salzburg Exchange Director, Brian Skyrms (email@example.com), by November 1.
