This year we mark the centenary of the publication of the first volume of Principia. There will be a symposium in Cambridge with seven or eight talks to honour the occasion, on November 27th and 28th, with the meeting suitably enough held in Trinity. Register by the end of the month for almost half price (and there are a limited number of places so early registration advised). It’s not a blockbuster mega-conference, but a small relaxed one (all the better for that, let’s hope), and a do-it-yourself affair as far as fixing accommodation is concerned: but you can always try inviting yourself to stay with a friend to avoid a hotel bill! Do come if you can: it should be fun.
A couple of months later, there’s the 4th Cambridge Graduate Conference on the Philosophy of Logic and Mathematics (held in St. John’s on 22nd and 23rd of January). The previous three occasions have been very enjoyable and seem to have worked extremely well: grads who want to submit a paper for consideration this time need to do so by the 15th November. Do come if you can (you don’t have to be a grad student to attend: again, if you aren’t one of the speakers, it’s a shoestring knit-your-own-accommodation affair). More logic fun — how can you resist?
And on sharp days and clear nights in winter, Cambridge can be a magical place …
