Dear Friends & Colleagues,

This is a reminder concerning the sixteenth annual Midwest PhilMath
Workshop (MWPMW 16). It will be held at the U of Notre Dame the weekend of
Saturday, November 7th and Sunday, November 8th, 2015. 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 invited to attend as guests of the

We’re pleased to announce that there will be a symposium on rigor at this
year’s workshop. It will feature talks by Juliet Floyd (Boston U), Doug
Jesseph (U of South Florida) and Alex Paseau (Oxford U).

The workshop’s website is at
Please go there to register for the workshop. This year, we are asking all
participants to register. We are also asking you to make your own hotel
reservations this year. Hotel information is available on the workshop’s
website, as are links regarding other practical information.

If you would like to give a talk at the workshop, please email a pdf of it,
or a substantial summary, to Paddy (pblanche at nd.edu), Tim (tbays at nd.edu),
Curtis (cfranks at nd.edu) and me (mdetlef1 at nd.edu). We would like to have all
proposals for talks by September 15th so that we can set the program by
late September. Talks should be 35--40 minutes in length, with 15--20
minutes left for discussion.

We're fortunate to have Ms. Lauri Roberts (lroberts at nd.edu) as the workshop
manager this year. She replaces our friend and colleague Harriet Baldwin
who retired this past January.

Finally, I'd ask that you share this announcement with others you know who
may be interested, both students and faculty. As usual we will have funds
(albeit limited) to help defray expenses for student participants coming
from out of town whose departments do not have funds to cover their costs.
These funds will generally take the form of subventions for lodging. If you
are interested in applying for a subvention, please notify us of that fact
as soon as you can. At that time, please also have an appropriate faculty
member from your department email us to confirm that it cannot meet your

I hope you’re having a good summer, and I look forward to seeing you at
MWPMW 16 in November.
