25 August - 6 September 2008, 10th Asian Logic Conference (ALC10) and Set Theory Satellite Workshop, Kobe & Kyoto, Japan

Date: 25 August - 6 September 2008
Location: Kobe & Kyoto, Japan

There will be two conferences related to set theory in Japan this summer. One is the ALC 10 (Asian Logic Conference) in Kobe (Sept. 1 - 6); the other is a workshop on Combinatorial and Descriptive Set Theory in Kyoto (Aug. 25 - 29).

Activities in set theory at the ALC include one 4-hour tutorial (Greg Hjorth), one plenary lecture (Justin Moore), and a special session with eight speakers. The set theory workshop in Kyoto will feature two minicourses (Simon Thomas and Menachem Kojman). Several speakers have already been invited, and we hope there will be many more talks, in particular by junior participants.

The Asian Logic Conference has occurred every three years in Asia-Pacific region since 1981, Singapore. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate interaction between researchers interested in mathematical logic, logic in computer science, and philosophical logic. It aims at promoting activities in mathematical logic in the Asia-Pacific so that logicians both from within Asia and elsewhere would get together and exchange information and ideas.
