This workshop celebrates the completion of the EPSRC-funded project “Social Machines of Mathematics”, led by Professor Ursula Martin at the University of Oxford. We will present research arising from the project, and bring together interested researchers who want to build upon and complement our work. We invite interested researchers from a broad range of fields, including: Computer Science, Philosophy, Sociology, History of Mathematics and Science, Argumentation theory, and Mathematics Education. Through such a diverse mix of disciplines we aim to foster new insights, perspectives and conversations around the theme of Enabling Mathematical Cultures.

**Confirmed speakers include**: Andrew Aberdein, Michael Barany, Alan Bundy, Joe Corneli, Andrew Inglis, Lorenzo Lane, Ursula Martin, Dave Murray-Rust, Alison Pease, and Fenner Tanswell.
