Years of Choice

University of Leeds

8–12 July, 2024

In 1904 Ernst Zermelo published his paper, Beweis, daß jede Menge wohlgeordnet werden kann, proving that every set can be well-ordered. This prompted the efforts to axiomatise and clarify the foundations of set theory and mathematics. This year, we are celebrating 120 years of choice and order.

From the 8th to the 12th of July 2024, the University of Leeds will be hosting a conference in set theory. There will be a tutorial session, 15 lectures, and a poster session.

Registration to the conference is open until 20 June 2024. Please consider registering early so we can better estimate the number of participants!
