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.
The network is now promoting its second international conference, after the
first FilMat conference in 2014 at the San Raffaele University in Milan,
and the inaugural conference at the Scuola Normale in Pisa in 2012.

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 truth, existence, and explanation, including, though not limited
to, realism vs anti-realism, inflationary vs deflationary accounts of
incompleteness, mathematical fictionalism, structuralism, the nature and
role of axioms, constructive existence, generality, the explanatory role of
mathematics, the philosophical relevance of mathematical explanation,
mathematical depth. Submissions by young scholars are especially welcome.

*Abstracts* must be written in English, and have a **maximum length of 1500
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 filmatnetwork.com>conference at filmatnetwork.com
<conference at filmatnetwork.com> *.
*Deadline for submission is February 19, 2016.*
