Theme of Euro Conference:

The Euro Conference will consist of lectures by leading experts presenting the latest results in model theory and its applications. The main themes are o-minimality (from model theoretic, real analytic and computational viewpoints), Diophantine geometry (including Hilbert's 10th problem),rigid analytic geometry and motivic integration. As background material, the lecture notes from the introductory tutorials given at the March/April workshop will be made available. The currently invited speakers are as listed below but as this workshop coincides with the last two weeks of the Model Theory Semester, we have left several slots available for the presentation of results obtained at the Institute during the course of the previous six months.

Invited speakers:

M Aschenbrenner, A Buium*, F Cano, Z Chatzidakis*, J Denef, L van den Dries, A Gabrielov, J Gordon, T Hales*, E Hrushovski, E Jaligot, P Koiran, J-M Lion, L Lipshitz, C Miller*, R Moosa, R Moussu, M Otero, R Pink, B Poonen, F Pop, Z Robinson, D Roessler*, J-P Rolin, T Scanlon, S Starchenko, K Tent, N Vorobjov, F Wagner.
