FoCM Conferences

A major FoCM activity are FoCM conferences, which are held once every three years in different corners of the globe. Indeed, historically FoCM started its existence as an outcome of such a conference!

FoCM conferences follow a set pattern: mornings are devoted to plenary talks, while in the afternoon the conference divides into a number of workshops, each devoted to a different theme within the broad theme of foundations of computational mathematics. This structure allows for a very high standard of presentation, while affording endless opportunities for cross-fertilization and communication across subject boundaries.
