Subject: Summer School on Topos Theory


                        Haute-Bodeux, Belgium

                        29 May -- 5 June 2005

A Summer School on Topos Theory will be held in Haute-Bodeux,
a village in the Ardennes region of south-east Belgium, 
between 29 May 2005 (arrival day) and 5 June 2005 
(departure day). The primary aim of the meeting is to provide 
students and young researchers who already have a working knowledge 
of categories with an opportunity to learn something of the 
diversity and richness of topos theory. However, more established 
researchers in nearby fields who wish to learn more about topos 
theory are also welcome. 

Lectures will be given by the following (who constitute the 
Scientific Committee of the meeting):

              Steve Awodey
              Peter Freyd
              Peter Johnstone
              Bill Lawvere
              Ieke Moerdijk 
              Myles Tierney

In addition, there will be tutorials and workshops to reinforce
the material covered in the lectures, and (if time permits) there 
will be an opportunity for participants to present talks on their 
own research.

The local organizer of the Summer School is Francis Borceux. It is
estimated that the total cost of the meeting will be about 1030
euros per person: this covers the registration fee, transportation
from and to the airport or railway station, accommodation and meals
(including drinks with meals), social activities and an excursion.
Unfortunately, the organizers do not have funds available to
provide any financial support.

Accommodation in Haute-Bodeux is strictly limited, and attendance 
at the meeting will be by invitation only. However, anyone who wishes
to be considered for invitation, or to propose names of people who
might be invited, is asked to send an e-mail to
Peter Johnstone <ptj at dpmms.cam.ac.uk> 

before the end of October 2004. (Those who have already responded
to the notices distributed at various meetings in summer 2004
need not e-mail again.)

It is expected that invitations will be sent out early in November
2004. Those invited will be sent formal letters of invitation to
assist them in obtaining funding, and will also be provided with
a reading list of material which may be assumed in the Summer School
