Winter Update Meeting (WUM) 2023 December 27th - January 3rd: “The Present of PAF”

Already one month before writing this invitation, PAF was fully booked for the period of WUM 2023. We’re genuinely sorry that if you haven’t booked by now, it’s unlikely your booking will make it off the waiting list. We still wanted to send out the invitation to keep you updated and share that the sessions will also be online.

In case you have booked already but will most likely not come, please let us know so we can still try to accommodate as many people as possible to take part in WUM 2023!

Hot Identities and Vicious Abstractions in the (Homotopic) Foundations of Mathematics 21-29 October 2023

Workshop piloted by Gabriel Catren in the framework of the L.I.F.E. Project

“[…] as one gathers one of those magical, closed water lilies, which spring up all of a sudden, enveloping nothingness with their hollow whiteness […]”

S. Mallarmé

Something is shaking in the so-called “foundations” of mathematics.


The Mattress is an ongoing experiment intended to throw off the status quo of a dominant white presence at PAF—that is, to change the course of an otherwise Eurocentripetal spiral.
