SUMMARY:Mathematical Collaboration III, Bristol, E
ngland
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20190429
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20190430
LOCATION:Bristol, England
DESCRIPTION:We are pleased to announce the third e
dition of the Mathematical Collaboration workshops
. After the previous two successful workshops on g
roup knowledge and mathematical collaboration (Oxf
ord 2017) and social virtues in mathematics (St An
drews 2018), this year we return with a focus on c
ommunities and communication in mathematics. Math
ematical progress is a collective endeavour. Resea
rchers build on one another’s work, collaborate, a
nd rely on one another to learn techniques, and to
identify interesting problems. Well-designed comm
unities can support inquiry, foster collaboration,
and include diverse researchers. Badly-designed c
ommunities can stymie inquiry, block collaboration
, and can exclude people from marginalised groups.
To understand what well-functioning communities l
ook like, and how institutional structures in math
ematics might be designed to best support intellec
tual progress, we need to engage in interdisciplin
ary inquiry, bringing together mathematical practi
ce, social epistemology, sociology, education, and
computer science. We also need to include working
mathematicians, and researchers who are working o
n practical projects to improve the profession.
