                        --- DESCRIPTION ---

This workshop aims to bring together European researchers
interested in the applications of ultrafilters in combinatorics
of numbers, and related topics.
The talks will present recent results in this area and
provide an updated overview of the subject.
The main goal of this meeting is to disseminate information
about the various techniques related to the use of ultrafilters
(including algebra in the space betaN and nonstandard analysis)
and their potential to attack open problems in Ramsey theory
and number theory.


                 --- INVITED SPEAKERS ---

* Mathias Beiglboeck (Univ. Wien, Austria)
* Sabine Koppelberg (Berlin Freie Univ., Germany)
* Imre Leader (Univ. Cambridge, UK)
* Jaroslav Nesetril (Charles Univ., Czech R.) - to be confirmed -
* David Ross (Univ. Hawaii, USA & Univ. Oslo, Norway)
* Dona Strauss (Univ. Leeds, UK)
