10-12 September 2012, "Mathematical Cultures 1", London, U.K.

Date: 10-12 September 2012
Location: London, U.K.
Deadline: 1 May 2012

Mathematical Cultures 1 is the first of three on mathematics as culture and mathematics in culture. It is organized by a research network funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council under the 'science in culture' highlight notice, with additional support from the London Mathematical Society.

The first conference will gather research that explores and maps the variety of and connections among contemporary mathematical cultures. These can be research cultures, but may also include practitioner cultures (e.g. among engineers, economists, social scientists, etc.) and mathematical cultures among instructor and student groups (e.g. primary/secondary/tertiary teachers, school pupils, mathematics students at all levels). The project will not invite contributions on historically or culturally remote mathematical cultures except as these illuminate contemporary mathematical culture in developed societies.

Speakers wishing to present papers at the first mathematical cultures conference should submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to the Easychair submissions system by 1 May 2012.
