 applications of set theory within pure mathematics.

 The INFTY Final Conference will take place at the Mathematics Center,
 University of Bonn, from Tuesday, March 4 to Friday, March 7, 2014. The
 scientific program of the conference features invited on set theory and
 neighbouring areas by internationally leading experts and young researchers
 as well as contributed talks. A Hausdorff Afternoon will commemorate the
