5th European Set Theory Conference, August 24 – 28, 2015

The 5th European Set Theory Conference (5ESTC) is the fifth meeting in a series of biannual meetings coordinated by the European Set Theory Society. Earlier meetings were held in Bedlewo (1ESTC, July 2007 and 2ESTC, July 2009), Edinburgh (3ESTC, July 2011) and Mon St. Benet (4ESTC, July 2013).

As part of 5ESTC, we are celebrating the 70th birthday of Adrian Mathias during the Mathias Day (Thursday). The programme consists of a tutorial, the Mathias Day, plenary lectures, invited (parallel lectures) and contributed talks.

The programme committee consists of Joan Bagaria (chair), Mirna Dzamonja, Benedikt Löwe, Ralf Schindler, and Philip Welch.
