Large-scale experiments play an increasingly important role in the
sciences. Large collaborations in particle and gravitational-wave physics,
large numbers of research participants in clinical trials, large-scale
technologies such as telescopes and detectors, extensively distributed
research tasks in climate science, or long-term research projects can all
be understood as instances of large-scale research.

The conference aims to bring together researchers from the sciences as well
as from history, philosophy, social studies of science, and neighboring
disciplines to explore the scope and understanding of large-scale research
and experimentation across the sciences, focusing both on theories that
underpin it and practices it consists of.
The conference will comprise invited talks, contributed papers, and
symposia focusing on the following topics:

• Going Large: the Bigger the Riskier? Epistemic Risks in Large Scientific
• Large-Scale Experiments vs. Large-Scale Observations
• Creativity and Constraints in Large-Scale Collaboration
• Theoretical Expectations and Large Experiments
• Big Science and Democracy
• Histories of Large Experiments and their Methodological Challenges

The registration for the conference is open on the webpage. There is no
registration fee.

We invite interested speakers to submit an abstract of 500 words by *July
31, 2022*, via the conference webpage

The PDF for the call for abstracts is available at
