Position as Maitre de conférence in mathematical logic, Paris (France), Deadline: 24 Oct 2019

There will be an opening for a Maitre de Conférence position (Assistant Professor) in Mathematical Logic at the University of Paris Diderot in 2020. Set Theory will be one of the priority areas. The hiring procedure in France requires candidates to go through a qualification procedure. This procedure is done by the CNU (ministry committee). More information can be found on the following website:


In order to initiate the procedure the candidates should create an account on the website


The deadline for doing this is October 24 2019. The candidates then have till December 17 to upload their file (cv, publications, etc) . The committee then examines the files and the results are announced in February 2020. The actual positions will be announced in March 2020, but in order to apply the candidates already need to have the qualification.

Catania Set Theory and Topology Conference 2020

We’re glad to announce the Catania Set Theory and Topology Conference, which will take place at the University of Catania in Italy, February 18-21 2020. Registration is now open at: https://sites.google.com/view/cs2t/home
Our conference aims to bring together researchers and students working on set theory and its applications to a wide spectrum of areas of mathematics, and in particular to Topology, to discuss the most recent advances and main open problems in the field and foster collaboration. There will be eight invited lectures and each of the participants can contribute a 20-30 minute talk.
TOPICS: set theoretic topology, forcing, large cardinals, descriptive set theory, PCF theory, cardinal invariants.

Le Laboratoire de Mathematique Nicolas Oresme ainsi que tout le personnel 
de l’universite qu’il a cotoye ont l’immense tristesse de vous faire part 
du deces, mercredi 4 septembre, de leur collegue

Professeur emerite

Il est difficile de trouver les mots pour rappeler son engagement dans la 
Recherche, sa vision scientifique et le role qu’il a pu jouer, tant au 
niveau local que national, dans le developpement des mathematiques et de 
leur valorisation.

Ses travaux portent sur la theorie des ensembles et l’algebre. Il est a
l’origine de la fondation du LMNO, et a ete le premier directeur 
scientifique de l’INSMI (Institut National des Sciences Mathematiques et 
de leurs Interactions).
