Logic Fest in the Windy City

The conference will take place at the University of Illinois at Chicago on May 30 – June 2. We will cover topics in set theory, descriptive set theory, model theory, and various applications. The workshop is aimed at graduate students and postdocs, but can also be beneficial to anyone interested in current developments in logic. We will have three tutorials and several talks. The invited speakers are: 



Travel support is available. Requests should be directed to Dima Sinapova. Graduate students, young researchers, female mathematicians and members of underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The BEST conference particularly aims to support the careers of young researchers in set theory (and related fields!), with travel support available for graduate students and postdocs. BEST features professional development opportunities and awards for student presentations. Please pass this invitation along to students, postdocs, and colleagues to submit an abstract and participate in BEST!

BEST is an international conference featuring talks on a broad range of recent advances in set theory research. The conference is organized by the Set Theory group at Boise State University and is structured as a symposium of the 100th annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Pacific Division (AAAS-PD). BEST is also supported by the NSF and Boise State University.

Organizers: Liljana Babinkostova (Boise State University), John Clemens (Boise State University), Samuel Coskey (Boise State University), Marion Scheepers (Boise State University). Scientific Committee: Natasha Dobrinen (University of Denver), Simon Thomas (Rutgers University)
