5-10 July 2009, 2nd European Set Theory Meeting, Bedlewo, Poland

Date: 5-10 July 2009
Location: Bedlewo, Poland

This is an ESF Mathematics Conference in Partnership with EMS and ERCOM. Chair: Prof. Jouko Väänänen, University of Helsinki, FI/University of Amsterdam, NL. The conference will be in honor of Ronald Jensen's lifelong achievements in set theory.

The conference focuses on three main topics. The first topic is inner model theory and large cardinals. The second direction is descriptive set theory, which studies properties of definable sets of reals, and more generally Polish spaces. Finally, combinatorial set theory deals with uncountable structures without any definability restrictions. As a fourth scientific topic of the conference, we can list applications of set theory to Banach spaces, measure theory, general topology, and other neighboring areas.

We encourage all interested participants, especially young scientists, to submit abstracts of their work for the poster sessions. Closing date for application (as well as for abstract submission): 08 April 2009. Grants are available for young researchers to cover the conference fee and travel costs.
