Causality: Perspectives from different disciplines

In the past few decades, some of the most influential developments in the study of causality and causal inference have resulted from cross-disciplinary efforts. Inspired by such achievements, this workshop aims to provide a platform for people interested in causality but from different disciplines to share the state-of-the-art and perspectives in their respective disciplines, and to explore the possibility of interdisciplinary cooperation in the study of causality.

Among other things, we are particularly interested in conceptual and formal characterizations of causality, theoretical problems in and practical methods for causal inference, the applications of causal inference in real problems, and human understanding of causality. The workshop will consist of invited talks, contributed talks, and enough time for scientific discussions.

The workshop took place in Hotel Therme Vals in Switzerland from the afternoon of August 5 to the morning of August 8, 2013.
