MODNET Summer School

Manchester, 14-18th July 2008

A meeting of the research training network in Model Theory MODNET

MODNET is an FP6 Marie Curie Research Training Network in Model Theory and its Applications, funded by the European Commission under contract number MRTN-CT-2004-512234

There will be two courses,
Finite Model Theory (A. Dawar)
Groups of Finite Morley Rank (J. Burdges),
each of around 5-6 lectures and supported by tutorials,
plus lectures by current and former MODNET research students and postdoctoral fellows and others.

For the course in Finite Model Theory, participants might find it useful to look at the slides of Dawar's introductory talks from an earlier MODNET workshop.
