We are pleased to announce an international conference on Formal Ontology
of Mathematical Objects. The conference will be held in person. We are
confident that by May 2022 academic activities will not be affected by the
pandemic. If you are interested to participate please send an email to

Ontological questions have always been central to the philosophy of
mathematics. Besides the standard accounts of mathematical ontology, in
recent times new paradigms have emerged, in connection with new important
mathematical breakthroughs, but also with the advent of new automated tools
for mathematical enquiries. This workshop aims to bring together scholars
who have devoted time and effort to clarify which kinds of mathematical
objects there are and what their nature consists in, and to present new
trends in the philosophical investigations of mathematical ontology.
