Masterclass in the Philosophy of
Mathematical Practices with Jean Paul Van Bendegem
Date: 21 - 23 June 2023
Location: Brussels, Belgium (in person)
Deadline for abstract submission: April 1, 2023
The Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (CLPS) of the
Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) will host its fifth
Masterclass in the Philosophy of Mathematical Practices on
June, 21-23 with Jean Paul Van Bendegem (CLPS, VUB).
We intend the masterclass to be a fully interactive in
person event, with the twofold objective to understand in
depth the materials presented in the lectures, and to
provide early career researchers (PhD students and postdocs)
with an opportunity to discuss their ongoing work in a
helpful and constructive environment. The lectures by Jean
Paul Van Bendegem will take place in the mornings, and will
be followed by afternoon sessions with presentations by
early career researchers in the Philosophy of Mathematical
Practices. The exact titles of the lectures will be
communicated at a later stage.
We invite early career researchers who would be interested
to present their work to send us an abstract of at most 250
words by April, 1st. Please submit your abstract, including
your affiliation information, via the following form:
or by sending it to the following email address:
Colin.Jakob.Rittberg (at) vub.be
. The talks will be of a
duration of around 20 minutes (not including discussion).
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by mid-April.
Notice that submitting an abstract is not mandatory for
attending the Masterclass.
