During the inaugural History and Philosophy of Physics in the Netherlands (HPP-NL) Workshop in December 2023, our community decided to organise regular HPP-NL mini-workshops, roughly twice a year, in varying cities. The 3rd HPP-NL Workshop will take place in Leiden on the afternoon of Tuesday the 25th of June, 2024. This workshop will feature an international keynote by Dennis Lehmkuhl (University of Bonn) as well as talks by NL-based historians and philosophers of physics.

This workshop is generously funded by a grant from the E.W. Beth Foundation, awarded to the universities of Leiden and Utrecht. In case of any questions, please contact the organisers:
Caspar Jacobs and Niels Martens.
