28 - 30 November 2018, 29th Novembertagung on the History of Mathematics: "History of Mathematical Concepts & Conceptual History of Mathematics", Sevilla, Spain

Date: 28 - 30 November 2018
Location: Sevilla, Spain

The Novembertagung on the History of Mathematics is an annual international conference aimed at PhD and postdoctoral students (young scholars) in the history of mathematics. In 2018 the Novembertagung will be held in Spain for the first time, at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Seville (IMUS). The conference will commence on November 28th with a lunch reception; presentations will then begin after lunch and continue throughout the next two days.

We encourage submissions that engage with historical considerations of key concepts in mathematics, as well as those that are guided by a conceptual approach to the history and philosophy of mathematics. Abstracts, of around 250 words, should be submitted by May 15th 2018. Please note that the theme serves as a guide, not a criterion for exclusion, and as such it is not necessary for a submission to engage with the theme to be accepted.
