I'm happy to distribute the schedule for the Second International Meeting of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice (APMP 2013), to be held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on October 3 and 4. You can get more information about the meeting at http://institucional.us.es/apmp/index_APMP2013.htm. A version of the schedule with abstracts for each talk can be read at https://www.dropbox.com/s/j2qzw3txu4o0bit/APMP%202013%20schedule.pdf.

All participants are invited to join us for the conference dinner on Friday, October 4, as guests of the University of Illinois. Please contact me (aarana at illinois.edu) to let me know if you'd like to attend, so that I can get an accurate count of guests for dinner. Please let me know if you have any special dietary needs as well.

I hope you'll join us next month for APMP 2013, and also for the Fourteenth Midwest Philosophy of Mathematics Workshop (MWPMW 14) which will also be hosted at Illinois immediately after APMP 2013 on October 5 and 6. Information about MWPMW 14 can be read at https://mdetlefsen.nd.edu/midwest-philmath-workshop/mwpmw-14/

Best wishes,
