The DLMPS is the Division of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science. Its objectives are
- to promote contacts among logicians, philosophers of science and scientists interested in the foundational problems
of their disciplines, and among institutions dedicated to logic, methodology, and philosophy of science;
- to encourage and sustain research and study of important problems in logic, methodology, and philosophy of science;
- to collect documents useful for the development of logic, methodology and philosophy of science;
- to organize, sponsor, and support international meetings of logic, methodology and philosophy of science
(International Congresses and Symposia), and to publish reports, Conference Proceedings, and other works related
to such meetings.
The DLMPS and its sister division, the Division of History of Science and Technology (DHST), form the International
Union of History and Philosophy of Science (IUHPS), which is affiliated to the International Council for Science
(ICSU - formerly the International Council of Scientific Unions).
