People, Places, Practices, is the 5-yearly joint conference of the British Society for the History of Mathematics and Canadian Society for History and Philosophy of Mathematics/La Société Canadienne d'Histoire et de Philosophie des Mathématiques, in collaboration with HOM-SIGMAA, the History of Mathematics Special Interest Group of the MAA.

We had a massive response to the call for papers, so it looks like being a lively conference.

Confirmed invited speakers include Karen Parshall, Colm Mulcahy, Évelyne Barbin, Edmund Robertson, Valeria Giardino, Brendan Larvor, Robin Wilson.

An Education Strand will run on dates to be confirmed. This will provide practical talks and workshops for those teaching the 15+ age group.

The Eleventh Conference on Mathematical Cultures and Practices (MC&P-XI, 10-11 July ) will remain associated with our meeting, and we may share some sessions.
