First announcement (in PDF).

Preliminary programme (in PDF).

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. This year, we invite researchers to come and think along with us how mathematics and mathematicians contributed to the development in computing.

If you intend to participate, send a note to hdurnova@ped.muni.cz by 30 November 2016, preferably including the title and abstract of your talk. Abstracts received by 1 January 2017 will be included in the pre-conference booklet.


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
