2 - 3 September 2019, 2nd Irvine-London-Munich-PoliMi-Salzburg Conference in Philosophy and Foundations of Physics (ILMPS 2019), Salzburg, Austria

Date: 2 - 3 September 2019
Location: Salzburg, Austria
Deadline: Monday 1 July 2019

Over the past decades, important contributions to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physical theories have been made within the philosophical community. Conversely, critical analysis of the formal structures of our best physical theories inform central philosophical concerns, and in some cases new theorems have been proven and new lines of argument developed that are of philosophical significance. This conference series aims to bring together philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians working on such issues. This year's event will be held on September 2-3, 2019 at the University of Salzburg (Austria). It will immediately precede a workshop on "Symmetry and Equivalence in Physics" taking place on September 3-4, 2019.

We invite the submission of papers on any topic of philosophy and foundations of physics by younger researchers. Submissions by graduate students and post-doctoral scholars are particularly encouraged and will be given priority. Papers of no longer than 5000 words should be submitted via EasyChair by 1 July, 2019. Submissions should include a title, and a brief abstract (up to 200 words), and should be blinded for peer review. They should be PDF files.
