The main theme of the MSLP 2014 conference is mathematisation. We understand mathematisation in two interrelated ways: as the creation of new mathematical objects from originally intuitive objects or problems (e.g. knots, games, colourings) and the mathematical treatment of empirical problems that emerge in science. This conference proposes to examine mathematisation both from the ‘internal’ point of view of pure mathematics, and the ‘external’ point of view of mathematical applications.
