Set t heory is taken to serve as a foundation for\n mathematics. But it is well-known that there are set-theoretic\n statements that cannot be set tled by the standard axioms of set\n theory. The Zermelo-Fraenkel axioms, with the Axiom of Cho ice\n (ZFC), are incomplete. The primary goal of this symposium is to\n explore the differ ent approaches that one can take to the\n phe nomenon of incompleteness. These different approac hes have\n wider consequences for the concept s of meaning and truth in\n mathematics and b eyond. The conference will address these\n fo undational issues at the intersection of philosoph y and\n mathematics. The primary goal of the conference is to showcase\n contemporary phil osophical research on different approaches to\n the incompleteness phenomenon.\n

We welcome submissions from scholars (in particular, young\n scholars, i.e. early care er researchers or post-graduate\n students) o n any area of the foundations of mathematics (broa dly\n construed). Particularly desired are s ubmissions that address\n the role of set the ory in the foundations of mathematics, or the\n foundations of set theory (universe/multiverse dichotomy, new\n axioms, etc.) and related on tological and epistemological\n issues. Subm ission Deadline: 31 March 2014.\n
