The Conference will be held on the 20th and 21st of January 2018 in St John's College, Cambridge. Our keynote speakers for the conference are Prof Juliette Kennedy (Helsinki) and Prof Øystein Linnebo (Oslo).

The deadline for submissions is Friday, 3rd November.
We invite papers from graduate students or those who have recently
completed their PhD on any topic in the Philosophy of Mathematics or Logic,
broadly construed. Papers will have respondents, and will be followed by
open discussion. Respondents will be selected from members of the Cambridge
University Faculty of Philosophy and other philosophy departments in the UK.

Papers should be no longer than 4,000 words, and suitable for a 40 minute
presentation. They should also be accompanied by an abstract of no more
than 150 words. The paper should be anonymised and suitable for blind
refereeing. Please include a separate detachable cover sheet including
name, title, institution, and contact details. Submissions are preferred
in .doc, .rtf or .pdf format. They should be e-mailed to
cam.phil.grad.conf@googlemail.com. Receipt of submission will be confirmed
by e-mail. Please note that we cannot accept more than one submission per
student.

We adhere to the BPA/SWIP good practice guidelines and especially encourage
submissions from women and other under-represented groups.

We will notify authors of the decision regarding their paper by the start
of December. For successful applications we will cover the cost of
accommodation, conference fee and the conference dinner.

Registration is now open and costs £15 for students and £25 for everyone else. You can register here until January 3rd, 2018.

We are very grateful to the Aristotelian Society, the Analysis Trust, the British Society for the Philosophy of Science, and St John's College for their generous support of the conference.
