          	   PRINCIPIA in Cambridge

   2010 is the hundredth anniversary of Russell-and-Whitehead's
Principia, and a symposium to comemmorate it is to be held at
the University where the authors were working.

The venue:    Trinity College Cambridge

The date:     Last weekend of November 2010

The speakers: Robert Constable,
 	      Michael Potter,
 	      Mohan Ganesingalam,
 	      John Harrison,
 	      Randall Holmes,
 	      Ivor Grattan-Guinness,
 	      Fairouz Kamareddine.

    As can probably be discerned from the list of speakers, 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.

There is space in the timetable for contributed papers. People wishing
to offer talks - as well as people who might wish to attend or merely
want more information - are encouraged to contact the organisers:
