Ultrafilters and Ultraproducts Across Mathematics and Related Topics
May 31 - June 6, 2020, Pisa, Italy


Dear all,

We are happy to announce the upcoming event "ULTRAMATH 2020 - Ultrafilters and Ultraproducts Across Mathematics and Related Topics", that will be held in Pisa (Italy) from May 31st to June 6th 2020.

The international Conference "ULTRAMATH 2020” aims to present recent results in the whole spectrum of mathematics which are grounded on the use of ultrafilters and ultraproducts.

Its main goals:
• Disseminate information about the various techniques related to the use of ultrafilters and ultraproducts, and their potential to attack open problems.
• Bring together researchers with different backgrounds, and encourage their collaborations and interactions, especially on topics connecting different areas of mathematics.

The covered topics of UltraMath 2020 include (but are not limited to):
• Additive and Combinatorial Number Theory.
• Combinatorics and Ramsey Theory.
• Algebra and Geometry.
• General Topology.
• Measure Theory.
• Ergodic Theory and Dynamics.
• Functional Analysis and Metric Spaces.
• Nonstandard Analysis and Model Theory.
• Generalized Spaces and Differential Equations.
• Set Theory.

Greater prominence will be given to those results that satisfy (most of) the following conditions:
• The results can be formulated and presented in non-specialist terms, and be in principle understandable by any practicing mathematician.
• The usage of ultrafilters/ultraproducts is important (or even essential) in obtaining these results.
• The results connect different areas of mathematics.
• The results reveal new facets of known important topics.

This is the second edition of “UltraMath”, after the one held in Pisa in 2008: http://people.dm.unipi.it/ultramath.
