Welcome to the webpages of the
Winter Workshop on History of Mathematics
Basic information on the current year can be found on the page 6th winter workshop on history of mathematics. The topic is
“Mathematics and society”
We are going to discuss how mathematics contributes to the quality of life. Invited speakers are
- Jakub Rákosník (Charles University, Department of Social History) homepage and
- Danny Beckers (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) 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.
A limited number of grants will be awarded to junior scholars presenting a paper at the workshop. For more information consult our 2nd announcement (PDF)
