  Graduate students are invited to submit papers on any topic in the 
philosophy of logic, mathematics or physics. Confirmed speakers for the 
physics conference include Han Halvorson (Princeton) and others. This year 
the Rotman Lecture will be given by Jeremy Butterfield (Oxford).

Papers submitted will be considered for the Second Annual Clifton Memorial 
Book Prize, to be awarded to the best essay in the philosophy of physics 
among those submitted.   The contest will be adjudicated by philosophy of 
science faculty at Western.

Papers should be no longer than 4000 words. Presentations will be limited 
to 25 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute commentary and a 
15-minute question period.

Please submit papers by email (as Word, Works or pdf attachments) by 1 
March, 2004. They should be prepared for blind review, and should be 
accompanied by an abstract (no longer than 300 words), as well as a cover 
sheet containing the author's name, institutional affiliation, title of the 
paper, mailing and e-mail addresses, and telephone number(s). The program 
committee expects to make its decisions by April 1, 2004 and should have 
funding available to cover part of the speakers' expenses. We will 
endeavour to make accommodations available to visiting graduate students.
