fPET: Forum on Philosophy, Engineering & Technology

fPET is a biennial meeting for philosophers, engineers and other researchers and practitioners related to both fields. The mission of fPET is 1) to encourage reflection on engineering, engineers, and technology and 2) to build bridges between existing organizations of philosophers and of engineers.

The fPET meetings continue the tradition of the Workshops on Philosophy and Engineer (WPE) at TU Delft in 2007 and at the Royal Academy of Engineering in London in 2008. Previous fPET meetings have been held at Colorado School of Mines in 2010, at the Graduate University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing in 2012 and at Virginia Tech in 2014.

Various volumes of the Springer series Philosophy of Engineering and Technology are a direct outcome of previous fPET meetings.
