  Set Theory has a special role in mathematics: on one hand it is the study of infinite sets and their properties, on the other it serves as the foundations for all of mathematics and therefore has philosophical significance. The combinatorial tools developed in the study of infinity have been applied in areas such as: topology, analysis, measure theory, ergodic theory, homological algebra, etc. On the foundational side set theory studies new axioms for mathematics and evaluates their consistency and truth.
  The Luminy workshops in Set Theory have been taking place since 1990. The goal of these meetings is to present the most important recent advances in set theory and its interactions with other disciplines, and also to promote new promising directions in research. The scientific level of these meetings is very high, we usually have around 10 ICM speakers, 2 ERC grant holders, experts from leading universities around the world, as well as some of the most promising young researchers. These meetings reinforce the attractiveness of France and Europe in this subject and help to keep the set theoretic community together.
  The program committee chooses 2-3 themes and invites renowned researchers to give mini courses on these topics. It also selects around 60 participants making an effort to maintain geographic, gender, age and thematic diversity. The scientific program is then made by the participants themselves who propose lectures on their recent work.

  La théorie des ensembles joue un rôle particulier en mathématiques : d’une part, elle étudie les ensembles infinis et leurs propriétés, d’autre part, elle sert de fondement des mathématiques et revêt donc une importance philosophique. Les outils combinatoires développés dans l’étude de l’infini ont été appliqués dans des domaines comme la topologie, l’analyse, la théorie de la mesure, la théorie ergodique, l’algèbre homologique, etc.
  Les ateliers de Luminy en théorie des ensembles ont lieu depuis 1990. L’objectif de ces rencontres est de présenter les plus importantes avanc ées récentes en théorie des ensembles et ses interactions avec d’autres disciplines, ainsi que de promouvoir de nouvelles directions de recherche. Le niveau scientifique de ces réunions est très élevé, nous avons habituellement environ 10 conférenciers de l’ICM, 2 boursiers de l’ERC, des experts de grandes universités du monde entier, ainsi que certains des jeunes chercheurs les plus prometteurs. Ces rencontres renforcent l’attractivité de la France et de l’Europe et maintiennent la cohésion de la communauté.
  Le comité de programme choisit 2 thèmes et invite des chercheurs renommés à donner des mini-cours sur ces sujets. Il sélectionne également environ 60 participants en s’efforçant de maintenir une diversité géographique, de genre, d’âge et de thèmes. Le programme est ensuite élaboré par les participants eux-mêmes qui proposent des conférences sur leurs travaux récents.
