*Call for Papers*

Over the past decades, important contributions to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physical theories have been made within the philosophical community.  Conversely, critical analysis of the formal structures of our best physical theories inform central philosophical concerns, and in some cases new theorems have been proven and new lines of argument developed that are of philosophical significance. This conference aims to bring together philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians working on such issues. The event will be held on September 3-4, 2018 at the University of Salzburg (Austria). It will immediately precede a workshop on "Time in Physics" taking place on September 4-5, 2018. Speakers for the workshop include Harvey Brown
(Oxford), Patricia Palacios (Salzburg), Bryan Roberts (London), Jos Uffink (Minnesota), Francesca Vidotto (Bilbao) and Christian Wuthrich (Geneva). Papers on any topic of philosophy and foundations of physics by younger researchers, especially graduate students and post-doctoral scholars, are particularly encouraged and will be given priority.

Anonymized papers of no longer than 5000 words should be submitted as PDF, via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=imps20180 ) by June 1, 2018. Please inlcude a brief abstract to start the paper. Decisions will be communicated by July 1, 2018.
