The 16th annual
Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics Graduate Conference
will take place on Thursday-Friday, June 9-10, 2016, at the
University of Western Ontario

Call for Papers

Graduate students who have not yet defended their PhD thesis are invited to submit papers on any topic in philosophy of logic, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of physics.

Papers in philosophy of physics will be considered for the 13th Annual Clifton Memorial book prize. The contest will be adjudicated by philosophy of physics faculty members at Western.

Submission Guidelines

The maximum paper length is 5,000 words, including footnotes and appendices (but not references). If the paper includes tables, figures, or equations, an appropriate number of words should be subtracted from the limit. Papers are to be prepared for anonymous review, and should be accompanied by an abstract (no longer than 300 words). Co-authored papers are not eligible for submission.

Deadline: Papers should be submitted via EasyChair by February 22nd, 2016.

Authors of accepted papers will be limited to 30-35 minutes for presentation, followed by a 20-minute period of discussion. We will endeavour to make accommodations available to all visiting graduate students.

This year, we will also be offering two bursaries for travel support. Priority for bursaries will be given on a need basis as well as to graduate students who identify as an underrepresented group. If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please e-mail a brief statement (one paragraph), detailing your need, to

The 2016 LMP Graduate Conference will be immediately followed by the 20th annual Philosophy of Physics Conference: "Information-theoretic Interpretations of Quantum Mechanics".
