Set Theory Workshop 2020


November 16 - 20, 2020


Although the workshop was planned to be face-to-face as usual, due to the current COVID-19 crisis we moved the meeting online! This is the first virtual version of this workshop.

The workshop will take place via zoom, the link will be distributed by email to the registered participants.

The workshop will be realized in Japan Standard Time (see the clock below the menu buttons). We will do our best to set the lectures in suitable hours for speakers living in different time zones.

We encourage both young researchers and experts, from Japan and abroad, to contribute with lectures in any topic of Set Theory. We expect participation (even without lecture) of many researchers in the area and graduate students. Click on the button for details. Registration is required for participation.

Deadline for contributed lectures: October 1st, 2020 - CLOSED

Deadline for attendance (without lecture): October 15th, November 1st, 2020 - CLOSED

Language of the lectures: English


Every year, set theory researchers from Japan and abroad gather at the RIMS (Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences) of Kyoto University and hold an international workshop that brings together both expert and young researchers in set theory.

The main purpose of this workshop is to propel further contributions in set theory and in its applications to combinatorics of the reals and topology, by getting together expert and young researchers in these areas. We also keep this workshop's tradition of presenting lectures in any topic of Set Theory, so both contributions in the main topics or in other topics are welcome.
