Dear Friends & Colleagues,

This is an invitation to the sixteenth annual Midwest PhilMath Workshop
(MWPMW 16), to be held at 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 university.

In a few weeks, a website for the workshop will be up, and you'll be able
to keep up with developments there. I'll send a link for it in emails to
come. You will also be able get to it by following the obvious links on the
Philosophy Department's web page (http://www.nd.edu/~ndphilo/) and on my
personal homepage (https://mdetlefsen.nd.edu/)

If you would like to give a talk, email a pdf of your talk 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

That's it for now. I hope you're having a good spring, and I look forward
to seeing you at MWPMW 16 in November. I'll be in contact later with
further information.
