MEETING: Third European Set Theory, Edinburgh (Scotland), 4-7 July 2011
Contact: Sedki Boughattas,

We should like to announce that the Third European Set Theory Meeting 
(July 4 -7 2011 Edinburgh) is now open for applicants wishing to attend.

The meeting is funded jointly by ESF-ERCOM and the International Centre 
for Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh (with further support from the 
INFTY Project). See the nascent website of the meeting:

There are limited number of places available, and according to ESF 
procedures, there is a Conference Fee and an application process which 
asks those wishing to attend to fill out an on-line application form here:

There is a DEADLINE for this of March 27'th. Soon thereafter applicants 
will be notified of the outcome. It is hoped that, as in the previous two 
meetings at Bedlewo, there will be the possibilities of grants to assist 
with attendance of younger researchers. (NB The ESF webform offers the 
possibility of applicants giving "short talks": in fact there will not be 
such, but only Invited Speakers. There will be the opportunity of a Poster 
Session, if colleagues wish to submit a poster.)
