11-13 October 2013, Andrzej Mostowski Centenary, Warsaw, Poland

Date: 11-13 October 2013
Location: Warsaw, Poland

Professor Andrzej Mostowski (1913-1975) was one of the leading researchers of Logic and Foundations of Mathematics in the period from WWII to his untimely death in 1975. A student of both Gödel and Tarski, he became world-wide famous for his contributions to all major areas of the Foundations, including Model Theory, Recursion Theory, Set Theory, and others. In celebration of the centenary of his birth, the Mostowski Centenary Conference will focus on his contributions to logic and the foundations of mathematics, as well as on the continuing influence of his work.

The objective of this meeting is to present and discuss up-to-date research advances in the field, with an emphasis on today's perspectives and challenges. The program will consist of eight plenary lectures related to Mostowski's heritage in modern Foundations of Mathematics, with additional invited presentations on current perspectives in the areas of Mostowski's mathematical activities. We will host an informal rump session intended for short and engaging presentations on recent unpublished results, work in progress, breaking news, progress reports, memories, or other short and entertaining topics of interest to the Conference attendees.
