Conference Description

This conference is organized by the AHRC funded project The Foundations of Structuralism. The aim is to bring together many of the leading researchers in the area to take stock of what has been learned in recent years about the appropriate understanding of structuralism about physics and mathematics and the relation between them, as well as about their viability.



Registration is obligatory for all delegates. Please see the Registration Form (Office document, 16kB) for details of fees, and information on registering your place. Contact Samantha Pollock with any questions, or for more information.
