BLAST 2013
It is a pleasure to announce the fifth BLAST conference, August 5 - 9,
2013 at Chapman University, Orange, California.
The BLAST conference series brings together researchers in
B = Boolean algebra
L = Lattice theory, algebraic and quantum Logic
A = universal Algebra
S = Set theory
T = set theoretic and point-free Topology
The first four BLAST conferences were at the University of Denver, New
Mexico State University<http://subsessile.nmsu.edu/blast/index.htm>, the
University of Colorado at
Boulder<http://euclid.colorado.edu/~kasterma/blast/> and the University of
Kansas<http://www.math.ku.edu/conferences/blast2011/>.
BLAST 2013 will feature invited talks by
* William DeMeo (University of South Carolina)
* Francois Dorais (Dartmouth College)
* Mai Gehrke (Université Diderot - Paris 7)
* Steven Givant (Mills College)
* Steve Jackson (University of North Texas)
* Michael Pinsker (Technische Universität Wien)

* Sam van Gool (Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen)
and invited tutorials by
* Martin Escardo (University of Birmingham)
* Heinz-Peter Gumm (Universität Marburg)

The conference is funded by NSF, Chapman University and the Center for
Excellence in Computing, Algebra and Topology (CECAT).
Abstract submission is through Atlas-conferences at
http://atlas-conferences.com/cgi-bin/abstract/submit/cbgq-01.
Registration will be $90 before July 1, 2013, and $110 after that.
