5-6 November 2011, Midwest PhilMath Workshop (MWPMW 12), Notre Dame IN, U.S.A.

Date: 5-6 November 2011
Location: Notre Dame IN, U.S.A.
Deadline: 1 September 2011

The twelfth annual Midwest PhilMath Workshop (MWPMW 12) will be held at Notre Dame the weekend of Saturday, November 5th and Sunday, November 6th. As usual, the plan is to schedule a full day of talks and discussions for Saturday and a half day for Sunday. Also as usual, there will be a workshop dinner Saturday evening, with all participants invited to attend as guests of the university.

As part of this year's workshop, there will be a special symposium on "The Nature of Mathematical Reasoning". Featured speakers will include Pr. Lance Rips (Psychology, Northwestern), Pr. Martin Monti (Psychology, UCLA) and Pr. Alan Bundy (Informatics, Edinburgh).

This year, the workshop will also meet in conjunction with Mic Detlefsen's "Ideals of Proof" (IP) research group sponsored by the ANR in France. In connection with this, there will be two additional special workshops, the first featuring interactions between mathematics and philosophy in the modern era, the second is a more logic oriented workshop.

If you would like to give a talk during the Saturday or Sunday sessions, please email a pdf of your talk or substantial summary to the organizers by September 1st.
