Midwest History of Mathematics Conference


The Midwest History Mathematics Conference will take place in the Reinhart Center of Viterbo University, LaCrosse, Wisconsin, on October 3 and 4, 2008.

The keynote speaker will be Chris Christensen from Northern Kentucky University, who will present the talk The Theorem that Won the War, on the work of Polish, British and American mathematicians whose work culminated in the breaking of the Nazi Enigma Code.

As the local organizer, I am soliciting talk submissions and inviting colleagues to attend. The forms for registrations and abstract submissions (by AUGUST 15, 2008), can be found at A tentative schedule of the conference is at the same website.

Any questions can be directed to Michael Wodzak (

Viterbo University is easy to reach from I-90, and the area, nestled between the bluffs next to the Mississippi River is beautiful in the fall. Consider participating and presenting!
