and
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20140509

LOCATION:Lausanne, Switzerland
DESCRIPTION:The Swiss Graduate Society of Logic an
d Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) organises a one-d
ay conference on Descriptive Set Theory on May 9 i
n Lausanne (Switzerland). Descriptive Set Theor
y is the study of the sets of reals that can be ex
plicitly defined or constructed, and so can be exp
ected to have certain properties, such as Lebesgue
Measurability, not enjoyed by arbitrary sets. It
is a central part of contemporary Set Theory and t
herefore dealing with major logical concepts, such
as definability and undecidability. Prof. Andrett
a (Universita di Torino) will provide the audience
with a gentle introduction to Descriptive Set The
ory and its interactions with other parts of mathe
matics. Prof. Duparc (Université de Lausanne) will
then focus on infinite games, a major technique i
n this field. For more information, see http://w
