The digital footprint of Gian-Carlo Rota

16-18 February 2009 - Milan, Italy

The conference is a tribute to the memory of Gian-Carlo Rota, one of the most influential mathematicians of the second half of the 20th century, a founder of modern Combinatorics, and a developer of the philosophical line of thought rooted in the research of Husserl, Heidegger, and Ortega y Gasset.

Gian-Carlo Rota's intellectual footprint lies at the crossroads between modern mathematics, phenomenology, and advanced computer science. His legacy is still fostering innovative research in multiple fields.

Gian-Carlo Rota's activity both in the US and in Europe (with a special attention to Italy) established a strong link between research communities on different sides of the Atlantic whose effects are still felt to these days.
