Re: Computability and Combinatorics • Summer School and Conference

From Damir Dzhafarov and Reed Solomon


We are pleased to announce

Computability and Combinatorics 2023

A summer school and conference will take place May 15–21, 2023 at the University of Connecticut (likely at the campus in downtown Hartford).

Organizers: Peter Cholak (University of Notre Dame), Damir Dzhafarov (University of Connecticut), Denis Hirschfeldt (University of Chicago), Antonio Montalbán (UC Berkeley), Ted Slaman (UC Berkeley), Reed Solomon (University of Connecticut), and Linda Brown Westrick (Penn State).

Information about the event is available online at the following link:

The event is part of the Focused Research Grant: Collaborative Research: Computability Theoretic Aspects of Combinatorics, supported by the National Science Foundation of the United States.

We anticipate having funds to help defer travel-associated costs for students and other early career participants. To request funding, please send an email to with an estimate of travel costs by March 30, 2023.

Summer School

A summer school consisting of two or three lectures focusing on the interactions of combinatorics and computability theory and logic, broadly construed, will take place May 15–18. The topics are still being finalized and will be announced soon on the conference website. Potential topics include computable combinatorics, reverse mathematics of combinatorial principles, model theory and combinatorics of random structures, and Borel combinatorics.

Applications for the summer school should be emailed to by March 30, 2023. Applications should include a cover letter and CV from the applicant, and in the case of student applicants, a supporting letter from an advisor or other faculty member who knows the applicant. If requesting funding, please include estimate of travel costs with application email.

Scientific Conference

A conference covering the recent developments in computability theory and combinatorics will take place May 19–21, immediately following the summer school. Information will be posted on the conference website.

Please feel free to circulate this announcement.

Questions may be sent to the local organizers, Damir Dzhafarov ( and Reed Solomon (
