*PhD EuroConference*

FOUNDATIONS OF THE FORMAL SCIENCES III

Complexity in Mathematics and Computer Science

### Universität Wien

Institut für Formale Logik

September 21st to 24th, 2001
"Foundations
of the Formal Sciences" (FotFS) is a series of interdisciplinary
conferences in mathematics, philosophy, computer science and linguistics.
The main goal is to reestablish the traditionally strong links between
these areas of research that have been lost in the past decades.

The talks of the conferences will be addressed at a general audience,
but their objective is to teach techniques and methods from the different
parts of the Formal Sciences to researchers from other parts. All talks
will be given to a general audience of mathematicians, logicians, philosophers,
computer scientists and linguists. Since we intend to promote genuinely
interdisciplinary joint work, we would like to have talks that are neither
general surveys nor specialized research announcements, but presentations
of problems and techniques.

The conference is a *PhD EuroConference* in the European
Community program "Improving
Human Research Potential and the Socio-Economic Knowledge Base - High-Level
Scientific Conferences". Therefore the speakers have to satisfy
the "*young researcher*" criterion
of the European Commission. The conference will be organized into six sections:

## Sections:

**(A)** Descriptive Set Theory & Core Models
**(B)** Topology & Analysis
**(C)** Models of Computation
**(D)** Complexity Classes in Computer Science
**(E)** Algorithms
**(F)** Complexity in Algebra & Universal Algebra

Each section will have two to four talks (between 25 and 50 minutes).

There will be a proceedings volume with refereed papers of all talks.

We shall collect a conference fee of ATS 750 (= $ 50) covering material
and other expenses. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the
organizers via `fotfs@math.uni-bonn.de
