The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Set-Theoretic Topology" workshop in Oaxaca, from July 30 to August 4, 2023.

The workshop is designed to explore the interactions that exists between set theory, topology, and algebra. The focus of the workshop will be on the study of topological problems of set-theoretic flavor arising in topological algebra and algebraic topology, as well as the study of topological games and homogeneity.

The program will bring together senior leaders in the field and students and junior researchers, specifically young mathematicians from Latin America. We proudly acknowledge the growing number of strong female mathematicians in the area, a trend the list of participants of the workshop will certainly reflect.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada’s Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta’s Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico’s Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
