The Second International Meeting of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice (APMP) will be held October 3-4, 2013 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. 

Invited speakers are: Abel Lassalle Casanave (Brazil), Marcus Giaquinto (UK), Elaine Landry (USA), Colin McLarty (USA), Marco Panza (France), and Christopher Pincock (USA).

The call for papers is now open, with a deadline of April 30, 2013. A title and abstract should be sent to apmp2013 at easychair.org.

Hotel information is available at http://institucional.us.es/apmp/index_APMP2013.htm. Potential participants are urged to consider reserving a room soon, since it promises to be a busy weekend in Urbana.

The APMP aims to foster the philosophy of mathematical practice, that is, a broad outward-looking approach to understanding mathematics that engages with mathematics in practice---including issues in history of mathematics, the applications of mathematics, cognitive science, etc. The Association was launched in 2009; see http://institucional.us.es/apmp/ for more information.

This meeting will be the first part of a four day meeting on problems and prospects in the philosophy of mathematics. The second part will be the Fourteenth Midwest PhilMath Workshop (MWPMW 14), October 5-6, 2013, also taking place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We hope APMP participants will also stay for this second part.

Sponsors at the University of Illinois include International Programs & Studies, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Lemann Institute for Brazilian Studies, and the Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities.
