17-19 September 2013, Mathematical Cultures (MC2), London, U.K.

Date: 17-19 September 2013
Location: London, U.K.
Deadline: 1 May 2013

The second conference in the AHRC-funded series on Mathematical Cultures will take place at De Morgan House (London) 17-19 September 2013. This meeting will articulate and classify mathematical values. What do mathematicians mean when they use terms such as ~deep~, ~elegant~, ~explanatory~, etc.? What is the rational structure of the deliberations mathematicians use to reach value judgments (in PhD examinations, book reviews, journal referee reports, etc.)? How much variety is there in mathematical values between mathematical cultures? What are the virtues of a good mathematician?

Speakers will include: Prof Alan Bishop, Prof Paul Ernest, Prof Jose Ferreiros and Prof Emily Grosholz
