The 21st annual Philosophy of Logic, Mathematics, and Physics Graduate Conference will take place on June 23-24, 2022. LMP 2022 will bring together philosophers of logic, mathematics, and physics for two days of presentations and discussions with some of the leaders in these fields. We are pleased to announce that Craig Callender (University of California, San Diego) will be giving the keynote address.

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 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.


Papers should be submitted via EasyChair by February 18, 2022 at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lmp2022.

Authors of accepted papers will be limited to 30-35 minutes for presentation, followed by a 20-minute period of discussion. The Annual Philosophy of Physics Conference will also take place sometime in June.

Additional information can be found on the LMP website.

Please send any questions to the LMP Conference Committee: uwolmp@gmail.com.

We look forward to receiving your submission,
