Chair: Prof. Jouko Väänänen, University of Helsinki, FI/University of Amsterdam, NL

Scope: Over the last century set theory has developed into a vibrant and important subject. On the one hand, it deals with questions of mathematical logic of deep foundational importance, such as the choice of axioms for mathematics and the questions of relative consistency of mathematical theories. On the other hand, techniques of set theory are applied in many areas of mathematics such as classical analysis, general topology, measure theory, Banach space theory, abstract algebra, ergodic theory and dynamical systems.
Conference topics will include:
1. Inner model theory and large cardinals
2. Descriptive set theory
3. Combinatorial set theory
4. Applications of set theory to Banach spaces, measure theory, general topology, and other neighboring areas
Menachem Magidor will give a Special Lecture on the work of Ronald Jensen.
