motto by Felix Klein

A bringing together of researchers from different fields interested in the question what makes mathematics special (if anything). Even if mathematics presents itself or is presented as a (quasi-)empirical matter, the status of an epistemic exception that mathematics forms among the sciences asks for explanations.


Papers are welcome from scholars of all disciplines, especially philosophy, mathematics, sociology, didactics, logic, epistemology, and the historical sciences.


The conference language is English.
