Homogeneous structures, permutation groups, and connections to set theory

A meeting in celebration of the 70th birthday of John Truss

School of Mathematics, University of Leeds
                 of John Truss

This conference focusses on several related interests of John: first order structures which are homogeneous in the sense of Fraïssé (or of more recent generalisations), and also ω-categorical structures in model theory; automorphism groups of such structures, and connections to other fields such as permutation group theory, semigroup theory, Ramsey theory and other aspects of combinatorics, topological dynamics; connections to set theory – related questions in combinatorial set theory, and permutation group methods in set theory.

The meeting is supported by the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds and by the British Logic Colloquium.
