Masterclass in the philosophy of mathematical practice with Valeria Giardino

The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLPS) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) will host its Fourth Masterclass in the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice on June, 1–3 with Valeria Giardino (CNRS, Institut Jean Nicod, Paris).

We intend the Masterclass to be a fully interactive event, with the twofold objective to understand in depth the materials presented in the lectures, and to provide early career researchers (PhD students and Postdocs) with an opportunity to discuss their ongoing work in a helpful and constructive environment. The lectures by Valeria Giardino will take place in the mornings, and will be followed by afternoon sessions with presentations by early career researchers in the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice. The exact titles of the lectures will be communicated at a later stage.

Call for Abstracts

We invite early career researchers who would be interested to present their work to send us an abstract of at most 250 words by April, 1st. Please submit your abstract, including your affiliation information, via the following form: https://forms.gle/ZsyQBpGftXoDxvcy5 or by sending it to the following email address: joachim.frans@vub.be . The talks will be of a duration of around 20 minutes (not including discussion). Notification of acceptance will be sent out by mid April. Notice that submitting an abstract is not mandatory for attending the Masterclass.
