Cofund : MathinParis

The international Doctoral Training in Mathematical Sciences in Paris – MathInParis – Cofunded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions offers 40 PhD fellowships within the framework of the European Horizon 2020 program “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes”.

This project has received funding from the European Uninion’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n°754362

The main features of the program is to enhance the potential and future career perspective of young researchers by offering :

1- an extremely attractive place in FSMP network for international brilliant students planning to prepare a PhD in mathematics
2- a strengthened advising
3- a broadened support for career development

 

1. Paris is indeed the city with the highest concentration of professional researchers and one of the main nodes of international research with tremendous scientific opportunities both in academic and industrial framework. FSMP is the largest network of mathematical institutions in the world, gathering all thematics in applied and fundamental mathematics as well as theoretical computer science in interaction with other sciences. In this very stimulating inter-disciplinary environment FSMP has a strong partnership with industries and support joint PhD fellows.

2. MathsinParis students follow the doctoral training research, participate to laboratory and thematic seminars following the PhD thesis topic decided with their advisor*, they are followed by a tutor** who has an external vision of the thesis progress and a external advisor*** who organize a mandatory 2/3 months abroad internship. In addition FSMP support various activities as presentation of scientific progress in a « Restitution day » or the participation at least one research school for year.

3. MathInParis Doctoral program structures also a wide range of non research oriented activities as training session for professional insertion with help of Adoc Talent Management and attending specific day as MathInParis Conference (Journée carrière des mathématiques) or Maths Jobs Forum.

The FSMP team guarantees a dedicated assistance for visa issues, housing, health, banking, etc. Furthermore, fellows will be affiliated to the French Social Security during the stay.

First Girona inner model theory conference

The first Girona inner model theory conference (https://ivv5hpp.uni-muenster.de/u/rds/girona_meeting_2018.html) will take place on July 16-27 at the Philosophy Department of the University of Girona, Catalonia.

The conference is a sequel to previous conferences on inner model theory in Münster, Palo Alto, Berkeley and Irvine. Once more, the meeting will draw together researchers and advanced students with an interest in inner model theory, in order to communicate and further explore recent work. There will be courses and single talks Monday-Friday, with 2 1/2 hours of lectures in the morning and 2 1/2 hours of lectures in the afternoon. This will leave ample time for problem sessions, informal seminars, and other interactions.

The conference is organized by Ralf Schindler (Münster), John Steel (Berkeley) and Joan Vergés (Girona). Please contact Ralf Schindler (rds@wwu.de) if you intend to participate.

Registration for 11th Young Set Theory Workshop

Dear all,

We are happy to announce that *registration is open* for the *11th Young Set Theory Workshop* <http://youngsettheory2018.altervista.org> which will take place *June 25-29 2018*, at the *Bernoulli Centre* <https://bernoulli.epfl.ch/> in *Lausanne, *Switzerland.

The number of participants is *limited to* *65*, due to our hosting institution’s capacity. Registrations close either after reaching 65 applications or on the *31st of March*. Once we reach the maximum of applications a waiting list will be set up in case some openings become available.

No registration fee is required. We ask the participants to arrange and cover the expenses for the travel and accommodation relative to their stay. Financial aid for travel and accommodation expenses may be available for selected participants, depending on availability of funding.

The aims of the Young Set Theory workshops are to bring together young researchers in the domain of set theory and give them the opportunity to learn from each other and from experts in a friendly environment. A long-term objective of this series of workshops is to create and maintain a network of young set theorists and senior researchers, so as to establish working contacts and help disseminate knowledge in the field.

This year’s Young Set Theory workshop will take place at the end of the *Descriptive set theory and Polish groups semester <https://bernoulli.epfl.ch/semesters/32/show>*. While the organization of the workshop is independent of that of the semester, we hope the proximity will promote attendance of young researchers from extra-European countries.

TUTORIALS:
Ilijas Farah (York University)
Assaf Rinot (Bar-Ilan University)
Christian Rosendal (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Dima Sinapova (University of Illinois at Chicago)

INVITED TALKS:
Hazel Brickhill (University of Kobe)
Diana Carolina Montoya (Kurt Gödel Research Center)
Gianluca Paolini (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Yann Pequignot (University of California, Los Angeles)

LOCAL INVITED TALKS:
