**RESEARCH WORKSHOP OF THE ISRAEL SCIENCE FOUNDATION**

**Set Theory, Model Theory and Applications**

**(In memory of Mati Rubin)**

** **

The international conference **“****Set Theory, Model Theory and Applications**,**” **in memory of our late colleague Mati Rubin, will take place at the Eilat Campus of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) from 22 – 26 April, 2018.

Eilat is Israel’s southernmost city, a popular resort located at the northern tip of the Red Sea, on the Gulf of Eilat. __The following Eilat Official Tourism Site contains a lot of useful information.__

The main purpose of the conference is to bring together mathematicians working in the areas of set theory and model theory in which Mati Rubin worked in order to exchange ideas and present results of current research.

The total expected number of participants is 70. The list of **confirmed participants** may be found in here.

Depending on the number of participants we may have some lectures in parallel.

There is no Conference registration fee.

__Accommodation__: The Organizing Committee will book the rooms for all participants in the **Hotel Adi **and will offer special prices in this hotel. Eilat has plenty of hotels and in principal the participants could book a hotel of their choice on their own.

**Travel to Eilat**: Arkia and Israir are the airlines operating flights from TLV (Ben-Gurion international airport) to Eilat.

We are planning to have Conference Dinner and an excursion for the conference participants and accompanying persons.

Possible financial support depends on the total funds that we shall be able to obtain.
