CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue on "Mathematical practice and cognition"

http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/apease/aisb10/journal.html

Special issue of Topics in Cognitive Science (TopiCS)

We are pleased to announce that a special issue of Topics in Cognitive Science (TopiCS) will be devoted to the theme of mathematical pratice and cognition.

Call for Papers:

Researchers in mathematical practice and cognition are forming increasingly well-established communities with independent approaches and methodologies. The aim of this topiCS issue is to establish and strengthen connections between these and other areas of research, and, where relevant, to relate work carried out in such arenas to the cognitive science mainstream. Thus, this interdisciplinary issue aims to present commonalities and interactions between researchers who investigate how people do mathematics.

Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Mathematical cognition (mechanisms in the mind for mathematical
  thinking, as studied by cognitive scientists, psychologists and
  linguists. Examples include embodied cognition, mathematics and
  language, metaphors and conceptual blends used in mathematics);

- Perspectives on mathematical practice (observable behaviours, as
  analysed by historians and philosophers of mathematics and
  mathematicians themselves. Examples include ways in which
  mathematical definitions or axioms evolve, the role of analogy in
  mathematics, and heuristics for mathematical discovery);

- Social aspects of mathematics (interactions between mathematicians,
  or between teachers/students of mathematics, as studied by
  sociologists of mathematics, philosophers of informal mathematics
  and mathematics educators. Examples include the concept of a
  mathematical community, social constructivism as a philosophy of
  mathematics, and constructivism in mathematics education);

- AI approaches to mathematical thinking (computational
  representations of some of the above mechanisms, techniques and
  interactions, produced by AI researchers and cognitive
  scientists. Examples include computational models of cognitive or
  philosophical theories of mathematical thinking, and developmental
  robotics).
