Call for Papers

The deadline for submission of papers is the 2nd November 2018.

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.

The conference is being organised by Nathan Hawkins and Benjamin Marschall. For further information, please contact them at .
