The 14th annual Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics Graduate

University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada.

 We are pleased to announce that Doreen Fraser (University of Waterloo) 
will be giving the keynote address.

 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 11th Annual 
Clifton Memorial book prize. The contest will be adjudicated by philosophy 
of physics faculty members at Western.

 Submission Guidelines

 The maximum paper length 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 24th, 2014.

 Authors of accepted papers will be limited to 30-35 minutes for 
presentation, followed by a 20-minute period of discussion. We will 
endeavor to make accommodations available to all visiting graduate 
students. This year, the 2014 LMP Conference will precede the 18th annual 
Philosophy of Physics Conference, Metaphysics Within and Without Physics, 
taking place June 7-8.
