CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Postgraduate workshop on alternative set theories, 22-24 June 2013, Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS

From Saturday, 22 June 2013, to Monday, 24 June 2013, we shall host a workshop 
on "Alternative Set Theories" at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The workshop 
is primarily (but not exclusively) intended for postgraduate students working 
in the area (i.e., Master's and PhD students). For the purposes of this 
workshop, a set theory is "alternative" if it violates one of the axioms of ZF 
or has an underlying logic that is not classical.

   Everyone interested in the subject is cordially invited to attend. No
registration fee is required, but we expect registration via an informal
e-mail to by 15 June 2013 in order to attend.

Venue. The workshop will take place at the University Library of the
Universiteit van Amsterdam (Singel 425, 1012 WP Amsterdam). Talks on
Sunday will be in the Vondelzaal; talks on Monday will be in the
Potgieterzaal). On Saturday, there will be an informal get-together in the late 
afternoon / evening: location and time will be announced to registered 
participants in the week before the event.
