Next October there will be a conference on skepticism from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment in Belo Horizonte (Brazil) in memory of Richard Popkin. Popkin is widely known particularly for his ground-breaking book The History of Scepticism. This work was first published in 1960 under the title The History of Scepticism from Erasmus to Descartes. Its second edition appeared in 1979 under the title The History of Scepticism from Erasmus to Spinoza, and its last edition - fully revised and considerably expanded - was published in 2003 under the title The History of Scepticism from Savonarola to Bayle.
The conference will be organized by José Raimundo Maia Neto. The program can be found here.
