  1. How can you have 10 keynotes? I think this would produce some serious disharmony. And in Mozart’s hometown at that! They should know better.

  2. Given that the conference is for *young* analytic philosophers, 10 keynotes is simply daunting…

  3. The 10 keynote speakers might be a misreading of the website. In the German version Hörster, Kleinknecht, Sedmak, Ganthaler, Morscher, Roy and Gratzl are participants in the two workshops on Analytical Philosophy of Religion and Formal Ethics. However, I have not the slightest idea how a workshop with 3 or even 4 top dogs will actually work as a workshop.
    In Germany, only 18 % of all fulltime professors are women, and the percentage in philosophy departments is even lower. So unfortunately, I am not at all surprised by this list.

  4. the site says “plenarvortragende” (imo that seems like an austrian-german term to me; in german/-y it would mostly say “keynote” as well) and lists them as

    key-note-speakers : > Plenarvortragende:

    Prof. Dr. Carlos Ulises Moulines (LMU München)

    Prof. Dr. Gerhard Schurz (Universität Düsseldorf)

    Prof. Dr. Hans Rott (Universität Regensburg)


    and then “workshop I, workshop II”

    a “public, no-fees-event” that is “men-speaking-only” ?!
    // oy-with-the-poodles //

    and sorry, do not know about their “academic quality” or “how young they are” neither like @Doktor D
