The Winter School is a traditional conference for mathematicians working in diverse areas of Set Theory, Topology and Analysis. The school is a meeting where emphasis is put on the joy of doing mathematics. Questions and discussions are welcome and there is plenty of space for them outside of the talks.
The meeting aims to be a meeting for both experienced researchers as well as advanced students who are most welcome to not only participate but to also present their work.
The program is split into a tutorial part and a research part. The tutorial part consists of a series of lectures delivered by the invited speakers. The tutorials are meant to be accessible to students and non-experts. The research part consists of presentations of research papers/problems from the area of Set Theory, Set Theoretic Topology, Measure Theory and related fields.
Real analysis, descriptive set theory, measure theory etc.
Functional analysis (geometrical and topological properties of Banach spaces etc.)

Registration Fee: 300 EUR
The registration fee covers the board, accommodation and the bus from Prague to Hejnice and back. You can pay the fee by cash (in EUR or CZK) upon arrival at the conference or by bank transfer. Please indicate your payment method when registering.
We will probably be able to waive or partially waive a small amount of registration fees and we are applying for grants which would allow us to waive more fees. This is intended to make the conference more reachable for young researchers, PhD students, and people with limited funding options. To apply for a waiver, please first register for the conference using the registration form. In the form, indicate that you will be applying for support.
Applications will be evaluated by the scientific committee and results will be announced to applicants. We expect the evaluations to be finished by Dec 16th, 2016. Each successful applicant will be awarded between 100 and 300 EUR towards covering his registration fee. Applications deadline is Dec 9th, 2016.
After registering, please ask your advisor to send a letter of recommendation on your behalf to email@example.com. Please ensure that the letter is sent before the support application deadline! Also, you are very much encouraged to present some of your work at the conference.
If you are not a student anymore, you can ask for support as a researcher. Researchers will be expected to present a talk and their applications for support will be evaluated based on the abstracts they submit. After registering (note that you do not need to provide the title of your talk up-front—just leave the field blank) prepare an abstract of your talk. The abstract should be a short (at most 1-page) pdf file. When you have your abstract prepared, please upload it on the "Talk" tab of your profile page (a link will be sent to you, once we process your registration); you can also send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that this must be done before the application deadline.
