This conference will also be the 16th Incontro di Logica Matematica
and it will include a general meeting of the members of the AILA.

    You are cordially invited to this meeting.

   DATES AND LOCATION: The conference starts on April 26th (Tuesday) and
ends on April 30th (Saturday). It will take place in the Certosa of
