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 June 10-11 at King’s College London Strand Campus (London, UK). It will immediately precede a workshop on “Probabilistic and Statistical Methods in Physics” taking place on June 11-12, 2024. Our expected list of speakers includes Emily Adlam (Chapman), Roman Frigg (LSE), Owen Maroney (Oxford), Wayne Myrvold (Western Ontario), Tim Palmer (Oxford), Katie Robertson (Stirling), Laura Ruetsche (Michigan), Tony Short (Bristol). 

Papers on any topic of philosophy and foundations of physics by younger researchers, especially graduate students and post-doctoral scholars, will be given priority. Submissions by scholars under-represented within the philosophy and foundations of physics community are especially encouraged.
