I don't know how I forgot about this: on June 26-28, the Department of Philosophy at Northwestern University will host the conference "The Epistemological Significance of Disagreement". For complete information, click here. Needless to say, the problem of disagreement is of central importance to skepticism: it was an essential aspect of Pyrrhonian skepticism and recently contemporary epistemologists began to focus their attention on it.

On July 2-3, at the Université Paris-Sorbonne (1 rue Victor Cousin, Room F 366), will take place the conference "Les Présocratiques chez Cicéron", which is organized by Carlos Lévy . There will be two talks that might be of interest to those working on ancient skepticism:
On Thursday 2, at 16h30: L. Saudelli (Paris): "La vérité dans l’abîme: le fragment 117 DK de Démocrite, Cicéron et le scepticisme."
On Friday 3, at 11h15: E. Spinelli (Rome): "Généalogie présocratique: entre Cicéron et Sextus Empiricus."

I want to call your attention to a new paper by Berislav Marusic (Brandeis University), namely, “Skepticism Between Excessiveness and Idleness”. The printed version of this article is forthcoming in the European Journal of Philosophy, but the online version is already available here.

Last year, Irina Pervova (St. Petersbourg State University) edited the collective volume Tolerance and Intolerance in the Modern Society: The East-The West. The volume features a paper by Chris Laursen entitled "Skepticism, Tyranny, and Toleration".
