Call for abstracts
The FilMat network promotes workshops and conferences open to Italian and international researchers in the philosophy of mathematics. To emphasise its attention to those at early stages of their careers, the network is glad to announce, in addition to its biennial main conferences, its second graduate conference. We expect to host up to 6/8 contributed talks by graduate and early career speakers of any nationality, selected by double-blind review. Submissions of original contributions are invited in any area of philosophy of mathematics, especially those connected with philosophical issues at the crossroads between the philosophy of mathematics and the philosophy of language and logic, and the use of formal methods for modelling them.

Abstracts must be written in English, and have a *maximum length of 1500 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 to
