ADDED on 16 May 2014:

Western University’s Annual Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics (LMP) Graduate Conference and Annual Philosophy of Physics Conference (this year’s topic: Metaphysics Within and Without Physics) is now supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Connection Grant. As a result of receiving this grant, we are pleased to announce that the conference will be live-streamed online.

Additionally, part of the grant has been allocated to providing small travel bursaries to support the attendance of graduate students who identify as women and/or another underrepresented group in philosophy, as well as on a need basis. Limited funds are available. Those interested should indicate so when registering via e-mail at uwolmp@gmail.com, and include a short statement (one paragraph at most) as to how the travel bursary would help them. Deadline to express interest is May 25th. More information can be found online: http://logicmathphysics.ca.
