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:
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.

  • Leandro Aurichi (University of São Paulo-São Carlos, Brazil)
  • Joan Bagaria (University of Barcelona, Spain)
  • István Juhász (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary)
  • Menachem Kojman (Ben Gurion University, Israel)

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.

Set-theoretic methods in topology and real functions theory, Kosice

Set-theoretic methods in topology and real functions theory, dedicated to 80th birthday of Lev Bukovsky

The conference takes place in Kosice, the city located in eastern Slovakia, on September 9-13, 2019. There is a nice occasion of celebrating 80th birthday of Lev Bukovsky this year, who spent most of his life in the city. The webpage of the meeting is

Topics of interest include set-theoretic topology, descriptive set theory, cardinal invariants, selection principles and set-theoretic aspects of the convergence of functions. The program consists of lectures provided by invited speakers

Joel David Hamkins in Amsterdam 2019

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
11 May 2019, 10:30-17:00

On Saturday, 11 May 2019, Professor Joel David Hamkins, the Sir Peter 
Strawson Fellow at University College Oxford, is visiting Amsterdam to 
speak at the Wijsgerig Festival DRIFT on the topic of ‘Het zijn en de 
dingen’. We used this opportunity to arrange for a small informal workshop 
on mathematical logic and set theory during the day. The programme will 
contain talks by ILLC students, a presentation by Professor Hamkins, and 
plenty of time for discussions.

The meeting will take place in the Belle van Zuylenzaal (Single 421-427; 
Room C1.13) in the University Library of the Universiteit van Amsterdam 
with the following schedule:

     Robert Passmann, E-models of IZF and intuitionistic multiverses
     Sam Adam-Day, Polyhedra Completeness in Intermediate and Modal Logics
     Lunch break
     Joel David Hamkins, The modal logic of potentialism
     Informal discussions in small groups
