29th Novembertagung on the History of Mathematics

Wednesday 28 November 2018 (All day) to Friday 30 November 2018 (All day)
Seville, 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.

The 2018 conference theme is: “History of Mathematical Concepts and Conceptual 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.

Call for papers:

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.

Please send abstracts and any other enquiries to: novembertagung2018@gmail.com

Note that The British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM) is offering one grant for accommodation for one scholar coming from UK. This grant is administered directly by the conference organisers.
