Call for abstracts
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.

In order to contribute to this process of establishment, the network is now promoting its first international conference, in the hope this will become a regular meeting for Italian and international researchers. The conference will give the opportunity to keep the attention on this field alive at national level, and to make the Italian research community even more visible internationally.

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 objectivity, cognition, and proof, including, though not limited to, realism vs anti-realism, epistemological problems concerning mathematical knowledge and mathematical objects, the role of mathematics in the empirical sciences and in mathematical practice, the cognitive basis of mathematical reasoning, the role of logic in the foundations of mathematics, proof theory and its related philosophical issues. Submissions by young scholars are especially welcome.

Abstracts must be written in English, and have a *maximum length of 1000 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@filmat-network.com.
Deadline for submission is January 31, 2014.

The conference will be entirely held in English.
