Set theory is a fundamental area of mathematics in which active research continues to open up exciting new lines of enquiry. 

 The aims of the workshop are to:

  • bring together young researchers working in pure and applied set theory

  • give the participants the opportunity to learn from four experts in the field, who will give tutorials on current research and present new directions

  • enhance the exchange of new ideas through discussion sessions

  • build and maintain a network of young set theorists and senior researchers, so as to establish working contacts and help disseminate knowledge

  • support local research by inviting established UK-based researchers

  • highlight the UK as a major location for work in set theory to the next generation of researchers

 

Tutorial speakers:

Joan Bagaria, Universitat de Barcelona
Matthew Foreman, University of California, Irvine
Grigor Sargsyan, Rutgers University
Asger Törnquist, University of Copenhagen

Arrangements

It is anticipated that this workshop will begin at 09.00 on Monday 10 July and close at lunchtime on Friday 14 July. 

 

PARTICIPATION

  • Tutorial and Invited Speakers will shortly receive an invitation from ICMS containing a link to a registration form.

    •       Once in the EPay system, click “BOOK EVENT”.   You will then be required to login/register.
    •       Please note the standard nights of accommodation are arrival on Sunday 9 July and departure on Friday 14 July.  There is no cost reduction for staying fewer nights. 
    •       There is the option to stay a further night (the night of Friday 14 July only) and depart on Saturday 15 July at an additional cost of 55 GBP.  You will be given this option as you          progress through the system.
    •       A receipt will be generated once payment has been made.

 

VENUE
The workshop will be held at ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh. 

 

TALKS AND AUDIO/VISUAL EQUIPMENT
All talks will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre.  The lecture theatre has a built in computer, data projector, and visualiser/document camera.  In addition, there are two blackboards.  The projector and one board may be used simultaneously.  We advise Speakers that, where possible, you bring your talk on a memory stick/USB to put onto our computer in advance of your session - either at the start of the day or during coffee/lunch breaks.   ICMS staff can help with this.   It is possible for you to use your own laptops but it is then your own responsibility to ensure that resolutions are changed on the laptops if necessary (ICMS will not change the resolution on our equipment).   If you use a MAC we expect you to bring your own adaptor. 

 

POSTER SESSION
There will be a poster session following the talks on Monday 10 July.  During the poster session, wine and nibbles will be served.   Please see here for full information about the poster session

 

UK VISAS
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.

 

TRAVEL
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.

Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies (volcanic ash disruptions) that may occur on your trip.

A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 20.00 to 25.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey.     There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 4.50 GBP single or 7.50 GBP return - the Airlink 100.  This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station, only a short walk to the accommodation and the workshop venue (see map in 'Venue' section above). 

Lothian buses charge £1.60 for a single, £4.00 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.

If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has several railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street.  If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second large railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.    Please be aware that there is also an Edinburgh Park railway station but this is at the west side of the city some way from the city centre.  For ICMS, use Edinburgh Waverley.
