The graduate students of the Western University (London, Ontario) philosophy department are excited to announce our 23rd annual Graduate Student Conference, taking place in person on June 14 and June 15, 2024. The aim of this conference is to promote cooperation and critical engagement amongst graduate students doing research in the philosophy of physics, mathematics, and logic. Papers in philosophy of physics will be considered for the Annual Clifton Memorial book prize. The contest will be adjudicated by philosophy of physics faculty members at Western.

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. This year, we will prioritize papers on the history of the philosophies of logic, mathematics, and physics, with a focus on the developments of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. We hope to generate discussions about the deeply intertwined nature of these disciplines and to foster an awareness of the historical influence exerted by each on the others

Submission Guidelines:

  • Submissions are accepted via email to [email protected].
  • Maximum 5000 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 should be accompanied by an abstract that is no longer than 300 words.
  • Papers are to be prepared for anonymous review (meaning your name should not appear within the paper).
  • Co-authored papers are not eligible for submission.

Submission Deadline (extended): April 5th, 2024. CFP is NOW CLOSED. Reviews are underway.

Accepted Papers: Each presenter will be allocated an hour-long time slot; presentations should be 30 to 40 minutes long, with 20 to 30 minutes for a Q&A period.

Bursaries: The LMP recognizes the challenges faced by members of underrepresented groups pursuing a career in philosophy. We will be awarding 5 travel bursaries to graduate speakers at $400 each. Priority for bursaries will be given to graduate students who identify as belonging to an underrepresented group, as well as on a need basis. Those requesting a bursary should include with their submission a separate, short (maximum 1-page) document detailing their need.
