27th Nov 201013:45AcademicPrincipia Mathematica anniversary symposium2010 is the hundredth anniversary of Whitehead and Russell's Principia Mathematica, a key work on the foundations of mathematics. A symposium is being held to mark the occasion, at the College where the authors were working.

This meeting is intended to address a broad range of interests: history, foundational mathematics, philosophy, type theory and mechanical theorem-proving. The symposium will be valuable to people interested in the intersection of these areas, or in relevant sub-branches of each area. Practitioners and students alike would benefit from attending this meeting.
