About the Event

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 Bernoulli Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the end of the Descpriptive set theory and Polish groups semester. 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.


The number of participants is limited to 65, due to our hosting institution's capacity. Registration closes on March, 31st 2018 or after reaching the maximum number of participants.
