Set-theoretic methods in topology and real functions theory,
dedicated to 80th birthday of Lev Bukovsky
September 9-13, 2019

The conference takes place in Kosice, the city located in eastern Slovakia. There is a nice occasion of celebrating 80th birthday of Lev Bukovsky this year, who spent most of his life in the city. The webpage of the meeting is

Topics of interest include set-theoretic topology, descriptive set theory, cardinal invariants, selection principles and set-theoretic aspects of the convergence of functions.

The program consists of lectures provided by invited speakers:

  • Aleksander Blaszczyk
  • Vera Fischer
  • Istvan Juhasz
  • Menachem Magidor

and contributed talks of participants.

Participants registration with welcome reception starts on Sunday evening, September 8. We plan to open the online registration in March at the webpage of the meeting. Due to Visegrad Fund we may partially support the accommodation of small number of PhD students or young researchers, from Visegrad Countries, Eastern Partnership Countries or Western Balkans Countries.
