A research community that could be described with the phrase "Practice and 
Cultures of Mathematics" has studied mathematics as a human subject with 
different practices and cultures in recent years. This research has been 
closely linked to the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice community and its 
Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice, but is broader in the 
sense that it is interested in the study of mathematical practices and cultures 
independently of whether there is an interaction with traditional philosophical 
questions (such as epistemology or ontology).

In addition to many other meetings associated to the research community, there 
has been a series of meetings dealing specifically with the phenomenon of 
diversity of research cultures in mathematics: the traditional view claims that 
all of the differences between mathematical research cultures are superficial 
and do not touch the nature of mathematics; it is the goal of this research 
community to evaluate that claim by studying concrete examples. Here, culture 
should be understood very widely, and cultural differences can be found 
distinguishing mathematical subdisciplines, national cultures, cultures imposed 
by university or institute structures, etc.

Previous meetings of this series include Mathematics as Culture and Practice in 
Bielefeld, Germany (May 2010), Mathematics as Culture and Practice II in 
Greifswald, Germany (December 2011), and Cultures of Mathematics and Logic in 
Guangzhou, China (November 2012). The upcoming meeting in New Delhi is the 
fourth meeting in this series. Closely related to these conferences was the 
research network Mathematical Cultures funded by the Arts and Humanities 
Research Council with three workshops held in London (September 2012, September 
2013, and April 2014).

The meeting will focus on case studies from mathematical research that 
highlight cultural differences, methodological discussions of the use of 
empirical data from the study of mathematical practice for gaining insight in 
the phenomenon of mathematics, and fundamental questions about mathematics that 
require a view towards mathematics as a human discipline to be discussed. The 
Programme Committee will issue a Call for Papers in the fall of 2014 and 
welcomes submissions from researchers of mathematical practice from the entire 

The meeting is generously supported by the Indian Council for Philosophical 

Programme Committee. Karine Chemla (Paris, France), Benedikt Löwe (Amsterdam, 
The Netherlands & Hamburg, Germany), Thomas M?ller (Konstanz, Germany), Jean 
Paul Van Bendegem (Brussels, Belgium), Bart Van Kerkhove (Brussels, Belgium).
