Philosophy of mathematics: objectivity, cognition, and proof
The FilMat network originates from two interconnected needs: to establish and foster exchanges between Italian scholars working in the philosophy of mathematics and strictly related fields, either in Italy or abroad, with special attention to those at early stages of their careers; and to support the relationships between the Italian community and international scholars.
In order to contribute to this process of establishment, 350-001 the network is now promoting its first international conference, in the hope this will become a regular meeting for Italian and international researchers. The conference will give the opportunity to keep the attention on this field alive at national level, and to make the Italian research community even more visible internationally.
We expect to host up to 16 contributed talks by speakers of any nationalities by double-blind review.
Submissions of original contributions are invited in any area of philosophy of mathematics connected with the issues of objectivity, cognition, and proof, including, though not VCP-510 limited to, realism vs anti-realism, epistemological problems concerning mathematical knowledge and mathematical objects, the role of mathematics in the empirical sciences and in mathematical practice, the cognitive basis of mathematical reasoning, the role of logic in the foundations of mathematics, proof theory and its related philosophical issues. Submissions by young scholars are especially welcome.
Deadline for submission: January 31, 2014.
Expected notification of acceptance: March 15, 2014.
Conference dates: May 29-31, 2014
Attendance is free. For organizational reasons registration by email before the 15th of May is highly recommended. Participation can be confirmed by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org(subject: Registration to FilMat).
