This is an invitation to the eighteenth annual Midwest PhilMath Workshop (MWPMW 18), to be held at Notre Dame the weekend of Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th, 2017. As usual, the plan is for a full day of talks and discussions on Saturday and a half day on Sunday. Also as usual, there will be a workshop lunch and dinner on Saturday, with all participants invited to attend as guests of the university.
A basic website for the workshop is up at https://mdetlefsen.nd.edu/midwest-philmath-workshop/midwest-philmath-workshop-18/. It will be regularly updated. I'll send a link for it in emails to come. You can also get to it by following the obvious links on the Philosophy Department's web page (http://www.nd.edu/~ndphilo/) or on my personal homepage (https://mdetlefsen.nd.edu/)
If you would like to give a talk, please email a pdf of your talk or a summary of it to Tim (email@example.com), Paddy (firstname.lastname@example.org), Curtis (email@example.com) and me (firstname.lastname@example.org). We would like to have all proposals for talks by September 6th 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 (email@example.com) as the workshop manager again this year.
Finally, we would ask that you share this announcement with others you think might be interested in attending MWPMW 18, 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 defray their costs. These funds will generally take the form of subventions for lodging. If you are interested in applying for such a subvention, please notify us of this as soon as you can. At that time, please also have an appropriate faculty member from your department email us to confirm that your department cannot meet your expenses.
That's it for now. We hope you're having a good summer, and we look forward to seeing you at MWPMW 18 in October.
