Dear FOM readers:

  Please find below a reminder for the ICM Satellite conference in
Chennai (including an extension of deadline to 1 April).

  We would like to stress that we find it very important for mathematical
logic to show presence at international general mathematics meetings such
as the International Congress of Mathematicians. We hope that the
interesting satellite conference organized in Chennai just before the ICM
in Hyderabad will attract some mathematicial logicians to India who will
then stay for the ICM. Please distribute this Call for Papers to
potentially interested speakers, and also note that for junior researchers
there are partial grants available.

Best wishes,

Ram & Benedikt


Conference on Mathematical Logic and Set Theory
Chennai (India), 15-17 August 2010
Satellite Conference of the ICM 2010 in Hyderabad (India)

Call for Papers, Extension of Deadline, and Information about Grant

The Association for Logic in India announces a satellite conference on
Mathematical Logic and Set Theory on the occasion of the International
Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2010), in Hyderabad, India. The satellite
event will itself be held in Chennai, co-hosted by the Institute of
Mathematical Sciences and the Chennai Mathematical Institute. The scope of
the intended meeting is all of mathematical logic, including its areas of
application (theoretical computer science, algebraic logic and others).

Keynote Speakers: Joan Bagaria, ICREA & Universitat de Barcelona,
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, Rob Goldblatt, Victoria University of
Wellington Wellington, New Zealand, Menachem Magidor, Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel, Justin T. Moore, Cornell University, Ithaca
NY, USA, Andre Nies, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand, Kobi
Peterzil, University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel, Anand Pillay, University of
Leeds, Leeds, UK, Theodore A. Slaman, University of California, Berkeley
CA, USA, Sergei Starchenko, University of Notre Dame South Bend IN, USA,
Wolfgang Thomas, RWTH Aachen, Germany, W. Hugh Woodin, University of
California, Berkeley CA, USA.

We invite all researchers in all areas of logic to attend the conference
and submit an abstract for a contributed talk. Abstracts should be 1 to 5
pages in length, and should clarify the main contributions being
presented. Presentations can be on any areas of set theory and logic, and
their applications in computer science and other areas. Submissions should
be made via the Easychair system, logging in as Author to
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icmselst2010 by 1 April 2010.

Conference registration details will be available from April 1, 2010 from
the conference page. We are offering a small number of partial subsidies
for junior researchers, and it is likely that the conference will be an
ASL-sponsored conference, making all student members of the ASL eligible
for "ASL student travel grants". More information on this can be found at
our subsidy page
