Theme of Conference:

The workshop will consist of a series of tutorials together with some research talks on related topics. We also hope to have a few short invited talks from graduate students and beginning researchers which will be decided on closer to the workshop date. Tutorials will be given on the following themes: (I) Model theory of differential fields, difference fields, and compact complex spaces, (II) Zariski structures, analytic Zariski structures and complex analytic structures,(III) Model theory of valued fields, (IV) Model theory of metric structures, (V) Motivic integration, (VI) Hilbert's 10th problem and variations, (VII) Real analytic geometry and o-minimality.
