Dear Friends & Colleagues,

This is a reminder concerning the eleventh annual Midwest PhilMath 
Workshop (MWPMW 11), to be held at Notre Dame the weekend of 
Saturday, October 23rd and Sunday, October 24th. As usual, the plan 
is to schedule a full day of talks and discussions for Saturday and a 
half day for Sunday. Also as usual, there will be a workshop dinner 
Saturday evening, with all participants invited to attend as guests 
of the university.

In a few days, a website for the workshop will be up, and you'll be 
able to keep up with developments there. You can get to it by 
following the obvious links on the Philosophy Department's web page 
(<http://www.nd.edu/~ndphilo/>http://www.nd.edu/~ndphilo/). In due 
course, the location of the sessions, the schedule of talks and 
abstracts for them will also be posted there.

This is to remind you that if you would like to give a talk, your 
should email a pdf of your talk or substantial summary to Paddy 
(<mailto:blanchette.1 at nd.edu>blanchette.1 at nd.edu), Tim 
(<mailto:bays.5 at nd.edu>bays.5 at nd.edu), Curtis 
(<mailto:cfranks at nd.edu>cfranks at nd.edu) and me 
(<mailto:mdetlef1 at nd.edu>mdetlef1 at nd.edu). We would like to have all 
proposals for talks by September 1st so that we can set the program 
by September 10th. Talks should be 35--40 minutes, with 15--20 
minutes left for discussion.

We're fortunate to have Mrs. Harriet Baldwin 
(<mailto:baldwin.1 at nd.edu>baldwin.1 at nd.edu) as the workshop manager 
once again this year. Please contact her with any questions you may 
have concerning rooms, meals, etc.. She has booked a block of rooms 
for the workshop. Since there are other conferences going on the same 
weekend, demand for rooms may be high and it would thus be a good 
idea to reserve a room with Harriet as soon as possible. Please also 
indicate to her whether you will be joining us for dinner Saturday 
evening, and let her know if you have any special dietary 
requirements. She can also point you to pertinent travel information, 
maps, etc..

Finally, I'd ask that you share this announcement with others you 
know who might be interested, including both students and faculty. We 
are fortunate once again to have limited funds to help defray 
expenses for student participants coming from out of town whose 
departments do not have funds to cover their costs. These funds will 
generally take the form of subventions for lodging. If you are 
interested in applying for a subvention, please notify Mrs. Baldwin 
of that fact as soon as you can. Please also have an appropriate 
faculty member from your department email me to confirm that it 
cannot meet your expenses.

That's it for now. I hope you're having a good summer, and I look 
forward to seeing you at MWPMW 11 in October. I'll be contacting you 
further as our planning proceeds.

Director, MWPMW 11
