Andrzej Mostowski Centenary
Call for participation
October 11-13, 2013
Professor Andrzej Mostowski (1913-1975) was one
of the leading researchers of Logic and
Foundations of Mathematics in the period from
WWII to his untimely death in 1975. A student of
both GÃ¶del and Tarski, he became world-wide
famous for his contributions to all major areas
of the Foundations, including Model Theory,
Recursion Theory, Set Theory, and others. He is
considered one of the main pioneers and founders
of such new research directions, actively studied
until now, as the generalized quantifiers leading
to the abstract model theory, and the descriptive
hierarchies of sets. He created a major center of
foundational research in Warsaw, Poland, bringing
together researchers from all over the world.
In celebration of the centenary of his birth, the
Mostowski Centenary Conference will focus on his
contributions to logic and the foundations of
mathematics, as well as on the continuing
influence of his work. The objective of this
meeting is to present and discuss up-to-date
research advances in the field, with an emphasis
on today's perspectives and challenges.
The Mostowski Centenary will be held at the
Mathematics, Mechanics and Computer Science of
the <http://www.uw.edu.pl>University of Warsaw ,
Poland, on October 11-13, 2013 as a joint meeting
of the European Mathematical Society and the Polish Mathematical Society.
The program will consist of eight plenary
lectures related to Mostowski's heritage in
modern Foundations of Mathematics by:
M.BojaÅczyk, H.Friedman, T.Jech, M.Magidor,
Y.Moschovakis, J.VÃ¤Ã¤nÃ¤nen, J.WoleÅski, and
W.H.Woodin. Additional invited presentations on
current perspectives in the areas of Mostowski's
mathematical activities will be given by:
M.DÅ¾amonja, L.KoÅodziejczyk, K.KrupiÅski,
A.Macintyre, L.Newelski, A.Pillay, C.Rosendal (to
be confirmed), Z.Sela, and S.Solecki.
The Conference is an open event. Everybody
interested in participating is welcome. The
registration is now open,
follow the link to the registration page .
However, due to the space limitations, we may not
be able to accept registration after September 1.
Late registration will be accepted only if resources allow.
Thanks to our sponsors, there will be no workshop
registration fee. Participants are responsible
for their own accommodation and travel expenses.
The conference has some (limited) funds directed
for support of some categories of participants. These include:
* Student participants from Eastern Europe (Division of Logic of IULMPS)
* Student participants from Europe (EMS)
* Student and faculty participants from United States
Some additional funds for students from Poland
are also available. Participants willing to
present a poster should notify us by September 1
via the registration page ).
We will host an informal rump session intended
for short and engaging presentations on recent
unpublished results, work in progress, breaking
news, progress reports, memories, or other short
and entertaining topics of interest to the
Conference attendees. Participants willing to
take active part in the rump session should
notify us and ask for a talk time slot by
September 1 (via the registration page; with
title and amount of time not exceeding 10
minutes). Some submissions may have to be
rejected because of time constraints.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference.
On behalf of the organizers,
Damian NiwiÅski and Marian Srebrny
