The Department of Logic & Philosophy of Science presents

"Second Irvine-Pittsburgh-Princeton Conference on the Mathematical and Conceptual Foundations of Physics (IPP 2014)"

March 20-21, 2014
Social and Behavior Science Gateway (SBSG), Room 1517

Organizers: Jeff Barrett (LPS, UC Irvine), Hans Halvorson (Philosophy, Princeton), Giovanni Valente (Philosophy, Pittsburgh), and Jim Weatherall (LPS, UC Irvine)

Over the past decades, philosophers of physics and others have made important contributions to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physical theories by critically analyzing how the mathematical structures of such theories inform central philosophical concerns, and in some cases by proving new theorems of high philosophical interest. This conference, the second in a series, aims to bring together physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers of physics working on such technical issues.
