2 - 4 November 2017, Novembertagung 2017: "Tools for research in mathematics, history, & philosophy", Brussels, Belgium

Date: 2 - 4 November 2017
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Deadline: Tuesday 15 August 2017

The Novembertagung on the History of Mathematics is an annual international conference aimed at PhD and postdoctoral students in the history of mathematics and related fields. It provides an opportunity for them to present and discuss their research in an informal and safe environment, share experiences and advice and to establish new contacts.

The theme of the Novembertagung this year is "Tools for research in mathematics, history and philosophy". Invited speakers: Liesbeth de Mol (Lille) & Ralf Krömer (Wuppertal).

The call for papers is now open. We encourage young researchers to submit abstracts of 500 words or less. We encourage submissions of two kinds:
1) historical and philosophical considerations about tool use in mathematics, and
2) methodological considerations about history and philosophy of mathematics.

The theme serves as a guide, not as an criterion for exclusion; it is not necessary for a submission to engage with the theme to be accepted.
