Submission Deadline Nov 13, 2020

Call For Papers

Creativity in mathematics may look paradoxical. Mathematics is a precise science with precise rules to follow. Where is the place for creativity in this castle of precision and rigor? What meaningful (philosophical) questions can we pose about mathematical creativity today? The workshop aims to bring together mathematicians, philosophers, IT and mathematical education specialists to get an insight into the non-exhaustive list of topics:

What is special about mathematical creativity?
Creativity in the invention and deployment of mathematical rules
Creativity in pure and applied mathematics
Creativity and mathematical purity
Creativity in the invention of notational systems
Creativity in using media and artifacts
Creativity in definitions and concept formation
Creativity in proofs
Creativity and aesthetics
Creativity in metaphorical and analogical thinking
How far are we in grasping mathematical creativity by computational means?
