Young Set Theory Workshop and European Set Theory Conference – early registration extended

Dear All,

We have extended our early registration period till May 15 for both the Young Set Theory Workshop  and the European Set Theory Conference.  Please follow the links below and note that the registration is separate for the two meetings. There is limited financial support available for young researchers through the ASL and NSF; please see the websites.
Details: European Set Theory Conference

If you indicated to give a contributed lecture at the ESTC, please submit your abstract as soon as possible (you can use the code received at registration to edit your original registration and submit an abstract). 

Details: Advanced Class 2019 (Young Set Theory Workshop) 

Please upload a short research statement with your registration to the YSTW (or if you registered already, please add this statement using the code you received).

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Vienna.

2019 Boise Extravaganza

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Boise Extravaganza in Set Theory will take place in Ashland, Oregon, on the campus of Southern Oregon University, during June 19-21. We very much hope you will be able to participate!

The conference particularly aims to support the careers of young researchers in set theory, 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!

Web site: math.boisestate.edu/best
Contact: myself or best@boisestate.edu
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)

Set Theory: Bridging Mathematics and Philosophy

Call for Papers

The project “Forcing: Conceptual Change in the Foundations of Mathematics” (2018-2023) aims to analyse the development of modern set theory since the introduction of the forcing technique both from a historical and philosophical point of view. It brings together methods and research questions from different research areas in the history and philosophy of mathematics to investigate if and how the extensive use of the forcing method brought about a conceptual change in set theory; and in which ways this may influence the philosophy of set theory and the foundations of mathematics.

The research group organises a series of Networking Conferences with the goal of reaching out to researchers from these different areas. The second instalment will be devoted to the topic of recent set theory as a bridge between mathematics and philosophy and focuses on the interaction between mathematical and philosophical arguments and views in set theory. Set theory has long been both a mathematical discipline and a program with foundational motivations. It seems that this dual character makes it a natural crossway between mathematics and philosophy, possibly more so than other mathematical disciplines.

Topics 

We welcome contributions which

a) add to current discussions in the philosophy of set theory (set-theoretic pluralism, height and width potentialism/actualism, the universe/multiverse debate, the forcing technique, justification of new axioms, contrasts with other foundational frameworks) by relating philosophical and mathematical arguments to one another; by working out the philosophical import of set-theoretic results; or by giving set-theoretic explications of philosophical concepts;

b) question or uphold the relevance of philosophical arguments in set theory. For example, according to Penelope Maddy’s naturalism, first philosophical arguments play no justificatory role in set theory. Should (mathematical) naturalism be understood in Maddy’s style? Are there other forms of naturalism that are more tolerant of traditional philosophical questions?

c) analyse the mathematical and philosophical content of the concept “set-theoretic practice” as used in recent set-theoretic programs. For example, do the different foundational programmes offered by the likes of Friedman, Hamkins and Woodin constitute different set-theoretic practices?

d) investigate how the inclusion of alternative set theories (constructive set theory, class theories, set theories based on non-classical logic, categorial theories of sets) impact the philosophy of set theory.

Submissions

Abstracts of 300-500 words should be submitted in PDF (with LaTeX source) or Word format no later than March 31, 2019, via email to <submissions@forcing-project.com>. Notifications of acceptance will be issued by April 15, 2019.
