Welcome to best 2014

We are pleased to announce that BEST 2014 will be held on the campus of the
University of California, Riverside 17 – 20, June 2014. The conference is
organized as a symposium of the 95th Annual Meeting of the AAAS Pacific Division.
The mission of BEST 2014 is to provide a forum for interactions between set theory and related areas of mathematics and between mathematics and natural sciences, a conference that will integrate student and postdoc dissemination of research, and provide an opportunity for interaction between the leaders in the field and set theorists early in their careers.

Mathematicians in set theory and related areas, including graduate and undergraduate students, are encouraged to present their research results at the meeting. Participation by women and underrepresented groups is strongly encouraged.

BEST 2014 will conclude three weeks of intensive set theoretic activity in California, following the Descriptive Inner Model Theory conference, Palo Alto, June 2 - 6, the Conference honoring William Mitchell on the occasion of his 70th birthday, Berkeley, June 7 - 8 and the Workshop on Descriptive Inner Model Theory, Berkeley, June 9 - 13.

Several other symposia and workshops offered at the 95th annual meeting of the AAAS-PD may be of interest to BEST participants, including:

  • Challenges for Implementing Vision and Change in Science Classrooms;
  • Promoting Deeper Learning in Middle Adolescence: Critical Connections and Implications for STEM Education;
  • The Importance of Citizen Science in Forming Scientific Communities from the Local to the National Level
  • Libraries and Learning
  • Should Science Reform the Humanities? Pinker vs. Weiseltier On Who Should Be In Charge
  • Theory, Experiment, and Computations: A Synergistic Approach to Research
  • PULSE–ating with Vision and Change: Promoting the Role of Faculty as STEM Education Change Agents
