I am very much looking forward to giving my paper in Cambridge. The programme looks very promising, and refreshingly specialized. It's a really good idea by Tim and Luca to organise a grad conference that focuses only on philosophy of math and logic. If this is you're field, make sure not to miss the event. Details are below.
Registration is now open for the 1st Cambridge Graduate Conference on the philosophy of Logic and Mathematics. The conference will take place at St. John's College, Cambridge on 19-20 January 2008.
