  • Ontology of mathematics and the nature of mathematical truth;
  • The problem of abstract entities in mathematics, philosophy and linguistics;
  • The mathematical concept of a function: from the notions of mapping, transformation towards the notion of an algorithm;
  • Complexity of finite objects: limited possibilities of man and computer;
  • Philosophical and mathematical aspects of informatics;
  • Philosophical aspects of the use of natural language in mathematics;
  • Mathematical investigation of natural language structures;
  • Mathematical models for compositionality in the study of language, mind and brain;
  • Formal models of verbal communication.

Since we intend to promote interdisciplinary joint work, we especially welcome studies that cross disciplinary boundaries and consider different aspects of Philosophy, Mathematics, and Linguistics in interaction.
