The FilMat network originates from two interconnected needs: to 
establish and foster exchanges between Italian scholars working in the 
philosophy of mathematics and strictly related fields, either in Italy 
or abroad, with special attention to those at early stages of their 
careers; and to support the relationships between the Italian community 
and international scholars.

In order to contribute to this process of establishment, the network is 
now promoting its first international conference, in the hope this will 
become a regular meeting for Italian and international researchers. The 
conference will give the opportunity to keep the attention on this field 
alive at national level, and to make the Italian research community even 
more visible internationally.

We expect to host up to 16 contributed talks by speakers of any 
nationalities by double-blind review.
Submissions of original contributions are invited in any area of 
philosophy of mathematics connected with the issues of objectivity, 
cognition, and proof, including, though not limited to, realism vs 
anti-realism, epistemological problems concerning mathematical knowledge 
and mathematical objects, the role of mathematics in the empirical 
sciences and in mathematical practice, the cognitive basis of 
mathematical reasoning, the role of logic in the foundations of 
mathematics, proof theory and its related philosophical issues. 
Submissions by young scholars are especially welcome.

Abstracts must be written in English, and have a *maximum length of 1000 
words (references included)*, and should be prepared for blind-review, 
with all identifying details (name, affiliation, email and abstract 
title) in a separate file. Submissions should be sent in .pdf format.
Contributed papers should be emailed to conference at filmat-network.com; 
*deadline for submission is January 31, 2014*.

The conference will be entirely held in English.

Deadline for submission: January 31, 2014.
Expected notification of acceptance: March 15, 2014.
Conference dates: May 29-31, 2014

Both the assembly of the network and the social dinner are expected to 
take place on the evening of May the 30th. All congresspeople are 
welcome to the assembly. The cost of the social dinner will be covered 
for invited and contributed speakers. Late registrations to the social 
dinner will be possible. All practical information about the conference
