Mailing List : To receive updates on the program please subscribe to our mailing list at www.fields.utoronto.ca/maillist OVERVIEWThe structure of this workshop, modeled on the very successful annual Arizona Winter School in Number Theory (http://swc.math.arizona.edu/), is the following: between three and five leading researchers give intensive tutorials (roughly five lectures per speaker) on the focus areas discussed during the semester, including posing problems. In small groups, graduate students work on these problems during the workshop. The meeting culminates with presentations by the students on their solutions. In order to give students the possibility to prepare adequately, the lecturers are asked to provide, a few weeks ahead of the workshop, a preliminary version of their lecture notes, or at least a list of suitable references and statements of the problems to be discussed. The final version of the lectures notes will be published later as part of the proceedings of the program. This format provides an intensive introduction to the topics and open problems related to the proposed program, and is designed to ensure significant interaction among all participants, especially between the students and the senior lecturers. The topics to be covered were selected to prepare the participants for the semester long graduate courses, to commence after the introductory workshop. Our current plan is to have lectures in the following areas: 1. Model Theory (Deirdre Haskell)

Apply to the Program: All scientific events are open to the mathematical sciences community. Visitors who are interested in office space or funding are requested to apply by filling out the application form (available in 2008). Additional support is available (pending NSF funding) to support junior US visitors to this program. Fields scientific programs are devoted to research in the mathematical sciences, and enhanced graduate and postdoctoral training opportunities. Part of the mandate of the Institute is to broaden and enlarge the community, and to encourage the participation of women and members of visible minority groups in our scientific programs. To be informed of when the application for support will be open please subscribe to the Fields maillist For additional information contact thematic@fields.utoronto.ca Back to Top
