The 16th Novembertagung on the History of Mathematics will take place on Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November 2005 in Paris, at the Ecole Normale Supérieur, 45 rue d’Ulm.

The “Novembertagung” is an annual international event, started in 1990, which brings together young philosophers and historians of mathematics. The conference provides an opportunity to give a presentation in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and is open to all young researchers. Students who are just starting their projects are very welcome.

Information about the organisation of this conference will be regularly updated on the site (web address provided below). Presentations are limited to 20 minutes so that there is enough time left for discussion. A blackboard, an overhead projector and a beamer will be available.

The deadline for proposals is 31st July 2005. Initially, it is not necessary to send an abstract. A title (even if it is provisional) will be enough. To send your proposals or make an enquiry, please contact: Frédéric Brechenmacher: [email protected] or Amirouche Moktefi: [email protected]

Organising Committee: Frédéric Brechenmacher, Jean Delcourt, Matthieu Husson, Guillaume Jouve, Brendan Larvor, Juliette Leloup, Sébastien Maronne, Amirouche Moktefi, Norbert Verdier, Elodie Vieille Blanchard.
