Western, 9-10 June 2016: Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics Graduate Conference

The 16th annual Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics Graduate Conference will take place on Thursday-Friday, June 9-10, 2016, at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.

We are pleased to announce that James Ladyman (University of Bristol) will be giving the keynote address.

Call for Papers:
Graduate students who have not yet defended their PhD thesis are invited to submit papers on any topic in philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of physics. Papers in philosophy of physics will be considered for the 13th Annual Clifton Memorial book prize. The contest will be adjudicated by philosophy of physics faculty members at Western.

Submission Guidelines:
The maximum paper length is 5,000 words, including footnotes and appendices (but not references). If the paper includes tables, figures, or equations, an appropriate number of words should be subtracted from the limit. Papers are to be prepared for anonymous review, and should be accompanied by an abstract (no longer than 300 words). Co-authored papers are not eligible for submission.

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair by February 22nd, 2016 at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lmp2016

Authors of accepted papers will be limited to 30-35 minutes for presentation, followed by a 20-minute period of discussion.
We will endeavour to make accommodations available to all visiting graduate students. Two travel bursaries for underrepresented groups will also be offered this year.

The 2016 LMP Conference will be immediately followed by the 20th annual Philosophy of Physics Conference.
