DFG-Graduiertenkolleg: GRK 806/2
The closing session of the Graduiertenkolloquium took place on 11-12 September 2008 at the Fakultät für Angewandte Wissenschaften in Freiburg. The event comprised four interesting keynotes from Thomas Eiter (TU Wien, Slides (.pdf)), Michael Huth (Imperial College, Slides (.pdf)), Alexander Prestel (U. Konstanz), and Victor Vianu (U.C. San Diego). In addition, the graduates reported on interesting results in their research.
Subsequent to the closing colloquium session from September 13 - 15 2008 there will be a small conference on the model theory of fields. Detailed information and the preliminary program can be found at the conference site.
Over the past century, mathematical logic has developed from a foundationally oriented science to a mathematical discipline, enriching traditional areas of mathematics with new ideas, methods, and results. The numerous and diverse connections to computer science, whose origins lies in part in mathematical logic, have led to the mutual advancement of both disciplines. This Graduiertenkolleg focuses on the interplay between logic and computer science/mathematics.
The Graduiertenkolleg addresses a coherent subject matter ranging from fundamental algebraic questions to applications in the information technology. The studies program is constructed so that participating graduate students and postdoctoral fellows develop a broad expertise in these topics.
