The IMS Graduate Summer School in Logic is jointly organized and funded by the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) and the Department of Mathematics of the National University of Singapore. The Summer School bridges the gap between a general graduate education in mathematical logic and the specific preparation necessary to do research on problems of current interest in the subject. In general, students who attend the Summer School should have completed their first year, and in some cases, may already be working on a thesis. While a majority of the participants will be graduate students, some postdoctoral scholars and researchers may also be interested in attending.
Having completed at least one course in Mathematical Logic is required, and completion of an additional graduate course in model theory, recursion theory or set theory is strongly recommended. Students should be familiar with the Gödel Completeness and Incompleteness Theorems, basic results in model theory and recursion theory, as well as the Gödel and Cohen Consistency and Independence Theorems in Set Theory.
Preference will be given to students who have not attended the summer schools previously held at IMS, but all interested graduate students are welcome to apply.
- Ralf Schindler (University of Münster, Germany)
- Theodore A. Slaman (University of California, Berkeley, USA)
- Isaac Goldbring (University of California, Irvine, USA)
While the IMS is committed to hosting the summer school as an in-person program, this is subject to the prevailing pandemic situation and government guidelines for in-person activities as well as border control measures. If the situation warrants it, the lectures may be held entirely or partially online.
Selected overseas participants will be provided living and travel allowance and accommodation.
In the application site, you will be asked to submit the following documents (in PDF format). Kindly ensure that the files are not password protected:
• Student ID (rename file as FIRSTNAME_LASTNAME_ID.PDF);
• CV (rename file as FIRSTNAME_LASTNAME_CV.PDF).
If your documents are not in English, please obtain a translated version.
Applicants are required to obtain a letter of recommendation from the supervisor to support their application. The letter should be from the thesis advisor or a professor who is familiar with the student's work. It should be submitted directly by the thesis advisor/professor to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2022.
An application is complete only when all required information is submitted.
