Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This is a reminder that the fourteenth annual Midwest PhilMath 
Workshop (MWPMW 14), will be held at the University of 
Illinois-Urbana/Champaign the weekend of Saturday, October 5th and 
Sunday, October 6th, 2013. As usual, the plan is to schedule a full 
day of talks and discussions for Saturday and a half day for Sunday. 
Also as usual, there will be a workshop dinner Saturday evening, with 
all participants being invited to attend as guests of the workshop.

Please make your hotel reservations in a timely manner. Information 
is available at the following:


In addition, the following hotels have blocks of rooms reserved for 
the Math/Philosophy Conferences (call local line to reserve within the block):

Suites is within a one mile walk of the meetings and campus

<http://www.eastlandsuitesurbana.com/index.cfm/id:5>Eastland Suites 
Inn (both of which are further off campus, but have shuttle service 
available to campus).

Other hotels that do not have blocks available, but should have rooms 
available include:


Inn and

<http://www.urbanahotel.net/>Urbana Landmark Hotel

These are all within ~1 mile walking distance to campus.

If you would like to give a talk, please email a pdf of your talk or 
substantial summary to Paddy Blanchette 
(<mailto:blanchette.1 at nd.edu>blanchette.1 at nd.edu), Tim Bays 
(<mailto:bays.5 at nd.edu>bays.5 at nd.edu), Curtis Franks 
(<mailto:cfranks at nd.edu>cfranks at nd.edu), Andy Arana 
(<mailto:andrew.arana at gmail.com>andrew.arana at gmail.com), Tim McCarthy 
(<mailto:tgmccart at illinois.edu>tgmccart at illinois.edu) and me 
(<mailto:mdetlef1 at nd.edu>mdetlef1 at nd.edu). We would like to have all 
proposals for talks by August 7th (note two day extension) so we can 
set the program by August 15th. Talks should be 35--40 minutes, with 
15--20 minutes left for discussion.

Let me emphasize that the change of location for this year's meeting 
does not signify a continuing change for the MWPMW. Next year's 
meeting---MWPMW 15---will again be at Notre Dame, as usual. There are 
two reasons for the change of venue this year. The first was a 
request from our colleagues at the U of Illinois to host the MWPMW in 
conjunction with the APMP meeting noted below. The second concerns a 
major and lengthy renovation of the Morris Inn, the principal hotel 
at Notre Dame. This renovation began last fall and is scheduled to 
continue through the summer. This has caused major headaches for the 
conference management folks at Notre Dame. In light of this and the 
kind invitation from the U of Illinois, it seemed that changing 
venues for this year's meeting would be a good idea. We hope you agree.

In due course, a website for MWPMW 14 will be up, and you'll be able 
to keep up with developments there. I'll send a direct link in a 
later note. You'll also be able to get to it by following obvious 
links on the Notre Dame Philosophy Department's web pages 

That's it for now. I hope the new summer is off to a good start for 
you, and I look forward to seeing you at MWPMW 14 and the APMP 
meeting in October. I'll be in contact with you further as things proceed.


Mic Detlefsen
Director, MWPMW 14

P.S. Directly preceding the MWPMW 14, there will be a meeting of the 
Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice (APMP). This 
meeting will take place on Thursday, October 3rd and Friday, October 
4th, 2013. For more information consult the APMP conference
