The Novem bertagungis an international graduate conference o n the history and philosophy of mathematics and ne ighbouring fields. It aims to provide an opportuni ty for graduate students at all levels to present and discuss their research in an informal and safe environment. It also allows young researchers to share experiences, get advice and establish new co ntacts.

\n\nOn the theme: While Euclid (c. 3rd century BC) is usually celebrated as the begi nning of axiomatic science, many features that are nowadays taken to be essential to axiomatics appe ar to be alien to ancient mathematics. A major con temporary change in the view on axiomatics was ini tiated by the adoption of the set-theoretic axioma tic framework as a foundation of mathematics in th e first half of the 20thcentury. Proof theory and model theory subsequently developed as independent research fields and had a wide impact on philosop hical thought.On the other hand, some philosophers also argue that the axiomatic view on mathematics may be harmful in that it omits fundamental aspec ts of mathematical practice and idealizes mathemat ical reasoning in an unfaithful way.

\n\nD ue to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the conferenc e takes place online.

Abstrac ts should be in English, around 250-350 words, pre pared for blind review, and submitted using the su bmission form on the website. Notifications will b e sent out in August. Submissions by graduate stud ent members of an underrepresented group in Histor y of Mathematics or Philosophy of Mathematics are particularly encouraged.

\n\nNote that the theme of axiomatics is meant to be a guideline an d will not serve as an exclusionary factor for the selection of submissions.
