23 - 27 October 2017, Fourth International Meeting of the Association for Philosophy of Mathematical Practice (APMP IV), Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

Date: 23 - 27 October 2017
Location: Salvador da Bahia, Brazil
Deadline: Saturday 25 February 2017

Over the last few years approaches to the philosophy of mathematics that focus on mathematical practice have been thriving. Such approaches include the study of a wide variety of issues concerned with the way mathematics is done, evaluated, and applied, and in addition, or in connection therewith, with historical episodes or traditions, applications, educational problems, cognitive questions, etc. In 2009, a group of researchers in this field gathered to promote the creation of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice, APMP. This association aims to become a common forum that will stimulate research in philosophy of mathematics related to mathematical activity, past and present, and foster joint actions. The Fourth International Meeting of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice will be held on October 23-27, 2017, in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.

We welcome paper proposals within the area of the philosophy of mathematical practice. A title and abstract (250-500 words) should be sent before January 31, 2017. Post-doctoral fellows and doctoral students are highly invited to send proposals.
