Euro-Conference in Model Theory and
Ravello, May 27 - June 1, 2002
A conference in Model Theory and Applications will take place in Ravello (Italy). Ravello is a small town, located 60 km south of Naples (30 km west of Salerno). Arrival day is May 26, departure day June 2. There will be six days of lectures (including a free afternoon), starting in the morning of May 27, and ending in late afternoon of June 1. The programme consists of three tutorials of three hour each, thirteen plenary lectures, a special session, a poster session and a problem session.
The topic of the conference is on the recent developments in the
applications of model theory to
algebra and analysis. The talks will be varied in nature, ranging from
survey talks to talks presenting more specialised material. All
speakers were however instructed to aim a good part of their talk at a
non-specialised audience, so that even young researchers can get a
good overview of what is going on in this particular area of mathematics.
The idea of organising such a conference came upon the Committee as a way of celebrating Angus Macintyre's 60th birthday, as he has been a leading influence in our mathematical life, and a banquet will be organised in his honour on Friday May 31st (cost per person: 45 Euros).
Programme Committee: Luc Bélair (Université du Québec à Montréal), Zoé Chatzidakis (CNRS-Université Paris 7), Paola D'Aquino (Seconda Università di Napoli, Caserta), David Marker (University of Illinois at Chicago), Margarita Otero (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid), Françoise Point (FNRS - Université de Mons-Hainaut), Alex Wilkie (Chair, University of Oxford).
The Organising Committee contains the members of the Programme Committee, and in addition: Alessandro Berarducci (Università di Pisa), Ulderico Dardano (Università di Napoli, Federico II), and Eva Ferrara Dentice (Seconda Università di Napoli, Caserta).
More information will be available in the future. If you want to receive the announcements of the conference, please write to Alex Wilkie.
