Welcome to the webpages of the
Winter Workshop on History of Mathematics

Basic information on the current year can be found on the page 5th winter workshop on history of mathematics. The topic is

“Mathematics, mathematicians and war”

We are going to discuss how does war affect mathematical work and vice versa. Invited speakers are

  • Tinne Hoff Kjeldsen (Roskilde University) homepage and
  • Henrik Kragh Sørensen (Aarhus University) homepage.

The meeting traditionally strives to support interdisciplinary debate and explore various approaches to history of mathematics. We would like to offer a view of mathematics as an indispensable part of our culture.


If you intend to participate, send a note to hdurnova@ped.muni.cz by 15 November 2014, preferably including the title and abstract of your talk. We also invite contributions in the form of introductory talk to a round-table discussion and/or report on a recent paper or book. Abstracts received by 3 January 2015 will be included in the pre-conference booklet.

Common departure of participants from Brno and Prague will be organised.

In the breaks after lunch, there are cross-country skiing and/or hiking trips planned. In the case of good snow conditions, please pack your skiing equipment. Alternatively, there is a ski rental in the near Nové Město na Moravě.

Looking forward to seeing you
