We are very happy to announce that the tenth installment of BLAST will take place at the University of Denver, where its inaugural meeting took place back in 2008! After a full decade of being hosted in various universities, BLAST returns to its birthplace. The BLAST Conference Series focuses on Boolean Algebras, Lattices, Algebraic Logic and Quantum Logic, Universal Algebra, Set Theory, and Set-theoretic and Point-free Topology. Its full history involves the following universities: University of Denver (2008), New Mexico State University (2009), University of Colorado, Boulder (2010), University of Kansas (2011), Chapman University (2013), New Mexico State University (2015), University of North Texas (2015), Vanderbilt University (2017). The central BLAST web page can be found here: http://math.colorado.edu/blast/. BLAST 2018 is supported by the National Science Foundation and the University of Denver.
