The FilMat network promotes the philosophy of mathematics within and 
outside Italy, fostering cooperation among scholars worldwide and 
supporting young researchers. After a pilot conference (Scuola Normale 
Superiore, Pisa 2012), three biennial major conferences (San Raffaele, 
Milan, 2014; Chieti-Pescara, 2016; Mussomeli, Sicily, 2018) and two 
graduate conference (Trento, 2017; San Raffaele, Milan, 2019), the 
network is now advertising its fourth international conference, jointly 
organized by IUSS Pavia and SNS Pisa, to be hosted at IUSS Pavia.

*NB: We expect to hold the conference in person, unless the public 
health situation in Italy changes and imposes or recommends to hold it 
remotely. *

We expect to host approximately 15 contributed talks by speakers of any 
nationality (selected by double-blind refereeing). Submissions of 
original contributions are invited in any area of the philosophy of 
mathematics, especially if connected with the following topics:

- varieties of mathematical foundationalism
- at the roots of foundations: novel perspective on classical debates
- abstractive, implicit, and axiomatic definitions
- the logical, epistemological and metaphysical role of mathematical 
- logical and metalogical properties of axiom systems
- evidence, certainty and basic logico-mathematical truths
- alternative axioms systems and mathematical multiverse
- axioms, consistency and paradoxes
- axiomatic theories and non-classical logics
- foundationalism and mathematical practice
- definitions and numerical cognition
- logical and mathematical pluralism
- philosophical methodology and theory-choice in logic and mathematics

Submissions by young scholars are especially welcome.
