Call for Papers, Symposium “Popper and the Philosophy of Mathematics”

April 5 – 7, 2018 the Karl Popper Foundation Klagenfurt (KPF) at the Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt, Klagenfurt, Austria ( will hold a symposium, lasting for about 2½ days, on the topic “Popper and the Philosophy of Mathematics.” Karl Popper contributed intensively to the theory of probability, to mathematical logic, and to some other areas of mathematics, in addition to his main interests in the philosophy of science, political philosophy, and other areas of philosophy. We are looking forward towards receiving proposals for presentations on any topics in the philosophy of mathematics that relate to the work of Karl Popper and to Critical Rationalism. Although there will be a focus on probability theory and mathematical logic, papers on any topic related to the interface of mathematics and philosophy will be welcome.

Scholars working in the areas outlined above are cordially invited to send extended abstracts (of about 1500-2000 words) of papers to be presented at the symposium in Klagenfurt. All proposals will be refereed by the scientific committee chaired by David Miller (University of Warwick) and Reinhard Neck (Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt). Authors of the best presentations will be invited to submit their final papers for publication in a special issue of a journal or a collective volume.  Details to be announced after the symposium. There will be no fees for participation, and the cost of meals and hotel accommodation for three nights will be borne by the KPF. Travelling expenses to and from Klagenfurt will in general  be reimbursed only in part.

Please send your proposal (with an email providing basic information about the speaker’s academic background, attaching an extended abstract, PDF preferred) to kp-f [at] as soon as possible and not later than February 2, 2018. Authors will be informed about acceptance or rejection by March 1, 2018, with more details about the program and the venue of the symposium.
