Asymmmetry in Causal Inference and Conditional Reasoning
27th and 28th of March, 2017

This workshop explores the relation between causal inference and conditional/counterfactual inference. We will focus in particular on the asymmetric nature of both types of inference.


The workshop will take place in BG2, Turfdraagsterpad 15-17. On Monday we will meet in BG2.008. On Tuesday we move to BG2.012, same building, right next door.
