Model Theory of Valued Fields and Applications
The aim of this conference is to bring together specialists
from the algebraic (or
arithmetic) and the pure model theory community who all study valued fields, but with very different tools.
The topics covered in the talks will range from the more classical model theory of
valued fields (field arithmetic, in particular definability of valuations, and model
theory of valued fields in positive characteristic, in particular concerning decidability) to the pure or geometric side of the model theory spectrum (connections
to neostability and geometric methods in the model theory of valued fields). To
encourage new developments, there also will be talks presenting applications
of model theory of valued fields, e.g. to non-archimedean geometry and motivic
The conference will take place at the Department of Mathematics and
Computer Science of the
WWU Münster. It is funded by the DFG.
