April 18 - May 20

A spring school of four weeks (18.04.16 - 13.05.16) plus one week conference (17.05.16 - 20.05.16) for PhD students and PostDocs with an interest in Model Theory. The spring school provides training in different areas of model theory at graduate level, including not only traditional subjects (stability and neostability theory, and the model theory of valued fields) but also recent interactions with additive combinatorics. It will also allow current PhD students working around model theory to interact with each other and with local researchers. The project Groups, Geometry & Actions SFB 878 can provide housing and some living expenses for a limited number of participants. Registration for the spring school is now closed. A list of participants can be found here. These three photos (Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3) were taken of the participants on the 6th of May 2016. For conference registration see the conference web page.

On Monday, 18.04., there will be a welcome and registration
session at 10am in SRZ5.
