(La registrazione e' chiusa, ma chi e' interessato puo' ugualmente partecipare. Alcune cartelline saranno a disposizione anche di chi non e' riuscito a registrarsi in tempo.)


This workshop aims to bring together European researchers interested in the applications of ultrafilters in combinatorics
of numbers, and related topics.
The talks will present recent results in this area and provide an updated overview of the subject.
The main goal of this meeting is to disseminate information about the various techniques related to the use of ultrafilters
(including algebra in the space betaN and nonstandard analysis) and their potential to attack open problems in Ramsey theory
and number theory.
