Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students

The summer school is open to women with a keen interest in mathematical philosophy. Applicants should be female students of philosophy, or philosophically minded logicians, mathematicians, or scientists at an advanced undergraduate level, in a master program, or at an early PhD level. To apply for participation, please fill out our application form, and send it together with a cover letter (including a statement of motivation) and your CV (ideally everything in one pdf file) to mathsummer2015@lrz.uni-muenchen.de. A separate letter of recommendation should be sent to the same address. If you want to present your own project, please send an abstract (up to 500 words) together with your application documents. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2015. Decisions will be made by March 15, 2015. The participation fee is 200€ (Note that the participation fee does not cover accommodation expenses). The language of all events will be English.

Some familiarity with the material presented in David Papineau's book Philosophical Devices: Proofs, Probabilities, and Sets is advisable.
