Each year since 2015 we have run a one-day conference on mathematics and its history at Birkbeck (University of London) organised by the British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM), and supported by the Department of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics at Birkbeck.
This year's event will be on the history of mathematical logic. We chose this theme to honour the eminent mathematical historian Ivor Grattan-Guinness, former President of the BSHM, who died at the end of 2014. So this will be a particularly special conference. Our programme is still being finalised, but confirmed speakers so far are: Adrian Rice, Apostolos Doxiadis, Volker Peckhaus, John Dawson, Amirouche Moktefi and Michel Serfati.
Registration will be £5 for students, £10 for BSHM members and Birkbeck staff, and £20 for non-members. This will include tea/coffee and biscuits at break times, but not lunch, as we wanted to keep the registration fee to a minimum. There are numerous places to eat within easy walking distance of Birkbeck, including a coffee shop that sells sandwiches and snacks within Birkbeck itself.
