Rutgers Workshop on the Foundations of Statistical Mechanics

From Heather Demarest:
"May 13th and 14th, there will be a workshop on the foundations of statistical mechanics at Rutgers in the seminar room. The workshop will mostly focus on issues raised in David Albert's Time and Chance. Topics will range over the philosophical foundations of statistical mechanics, the nature of probability, the direction of time, experience and causal influence. Participants will include David Albert, Valia Allori, Craig Callender, Adam Elga, Mathias Frisch, Shelly Goldstein, Nick Huggett, Jenann Isamel, Doug Kutach, Chris Meacham, Alyssa Ney, Jill North, Sarah Scott, Michael Strevens, Brad Weslake, Eric Winsberg, and Nino Zanghi. If you would like to attend the workshop, or have any questions, please send me an email (heatherdemarest@gmail.com). The speakers will assume that the participants have read the papers, which can be found at the workshop website below:
Hope to see many of you there, Heather."
