CALL FOR PAPERS: Mathematising Science: Limits and Perspectives 2, 1-3 Jun 2014, Norwich (U.K.)

 This event follows from the 2013 MSLP (Mathematising Science: Limits and Perspectives) conference 
and is entirely devoted to mathematisation, understood in two interrelated ways: as the creation 
of new mathematical objects from originally intuitive objects or problems (e.g. knots, games, 
colourings) or as the mathematical treatment of empirical problems that emerge in science. We 
seek to examine mathematisation both from the ?internal? point of view of pure mathematics, and 
the ?external? point of view of mathematical applications.

 3. Conference dates: 1 - 3 June 2013


 Authors are invited to submit an abstract of 100 words and an extended 
abstract of 1000 words. Please prepare your abstracts for blind review and 
save your extended abstract as a PDF file. There are 8 slots for 
contributed papers, each of which will be allocated 30 minutes for 
presentation, followed by a 15 minute discussion. We support the Gendered 
Conference Campaign by applying its strategy to our conference: 
For submissions, go to: 
When logged in, click on the 'New Submission' tab. Include your 100 words 
abstract and upload the PDF file of your extended abstract. Please feel 
free to contact the organisers with any questions you may have at:

 Possible contributed topics include, but are not limited to, the 

- Does intuition provide only the initial material, soon to be discarded, 
for mathematical theorising, or does it assist it in its full development?

- Do mathematical proofs rely on intuitive support, e.g. diagrammatic or 
geometrical reasoning, in any significant way or does intuition intervene 
only at a preliminary, heuristic stage?

- Is there a specific sense in which the choice of a particular intuitive 
content (e.g. knots, networks) guides the articulation of a mathematical 
theory by selecting the concepts worth introducing, the theorems worth 
proving, the connections with other mathematical theories worth making? - 
Is it possible to decide whether a field of scientific inquiry is amenable 
to a certain mathematical treatment?

- Is it possible to determine uniform criteria for mathematisation?

- Is there a cost at forcibly fitting an empirical field of inquiry to the 
structure of a mathematical object (an especially pressing problem in 
mathematical social science)?

- Is mathematics just a tool of empirical enquiry or does it play a more 
substantial role, e.g. by generating explanations or yielding a unified 
picture of disparate phenomena?

- Is it possible to subject the same empirical settings to alternative, 
non-equivalent mathematical treatments?

 REGISTRATION FEE There is a 30 registration standard fee for non-student 
participants and a 10 fee for students.
