L.E.J. Brouwer, fifty years later at the Science Park in Amsterdam on the 9th of December 2016, 9:45-16:45.
We have put together an interesting programme with highly renowned speakers, viz. Dirk van Dalen, Mark van Atten, Sergei Artemov, Alexander Dranishnikov, Saul Kripke, Yiannis Moschovakis, Michael Rathjen, and Raf Bocklandt.
You can find the complete programme and a registration form on our website: wiskgenoot.nl/brouwer50<http://www.wiskgenoot.nl/brouwer50>
Participation is free but registration<http://www.wiskgenoot.nl/brouwer50/registration> is required.

Luitzen Egbertus Jan Brouwer (27 February 1881 – 2 December 1966), was an influential Dutch mathematician and philosopher, who worked in topology, set theory, measure theory and complex analysis. At the end of this year it will be fifty years ago that L.E.J. (Bertus) Brouwer died as a consequence of a traffic accident. Brouwer had by then put his ever-lasting mark on mathematics, logic and philosophy. In mathematics he revolutionized topology with his dimension theory, fixed point theorems and homotopy theory. In logic he became the founding father of intuitionism, with its constructive approach to mathematics and logic that is also relevant in theoretical computer science. In philosophy he questioned our very perception of mathematical reality.
