    Aims and scope
    Over the last few years approaches to the philosophy of mathematics that focus on mathematical practice have been thriving. Such approaches include the study of a wide variety of issues concerned with the way mathematics is done, evaluated, and applied, and in addition, or in connection therewith, with historical episodes or traditions, applications, educational problems, cognitive questions, etc. We suggest using the label "philosophy of mathematical practice" as a general term for this gamut of approaches, open to interdisciplinary work.
    In 2009, a group of researchers in this field gathered to promote the creation of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice, APMP. This association aims to become a common forum that will stimulate research in philosophy of mathematics related to mathematical activity, past and present, and foster joint actions.
    For a full description of the aims of the association see its website.

    A schedule (version 5 Dec) and book of abstracts of the meeting are now available. Note that the conference will start after lunch on Thursday, 9 December 2010, and continue until the evening of Saturday, 11 December 2010. Slot time will be 30 mins for contributed talks, and 60 mins for plenary lectures (including questions).
