    I think the following announcement will be of interest to members of this
    list, particularly those working on basic concepts in fuzzy set theory,
    fuzzy topology, or on the interface with theoretical computer science. My
    apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement.

       Yours faithfully,

                  Lawrence M. Brown (Chairman of the Organizing Committee)

    Main Announcement

    International Conference on Applicable General Topology (ICAGT2001)

    We are pleased to announce that an International Conference on Applicable
    General Topology will be held at Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey
    between 12 - 18 August, 2001.

    Keynote Speakers: Abbas Edalat (London), Martin Escardo (Birmingham), Klaus
    Keimel (Darmstadt), Hans-Peter Künzi (Cape Town), Robert Lowen (Antwerp),
    Stephen Watson (Toronto), Richard Wilson (Mexico City) and Dmitrii
    Shakhmatov (Matsuyama).

    Topics of interest at the conference include, but are not limited to:

    Asymmetric Topology (non-Hausdorff separation, order, bitopology,
    Symmetric Topology (application oriented aspects of general topology more
    rooted in classical analysis, topological groups, uniformities, etc.)
    Point-free, Constructive or Categorical Aspects (frame/locale theory, domain
    theory, formal topology, categorical methods)
    Topology on Lattices (fuzzy topology, texture spaces, generalizations)
    Digital Topology (discretisation versus continuity, finite T_0 spaces)
    Applications (to algebra, analysis, computer science, logic, etc.)

    In addition to 55 minute Keynote Talks on the main themes of the conference
    there will be 25 minute Contributed Talks by the participants, Problem
    Sessions and opportunities for informal contacts between Turkish research
    students and experts in their areas of interest.

    Abstracts of talks should be submitted to the Topology Atlas Abstract
    service. There is a link from the features page of our Conference Web Site


    Alternatively, those without access to the Internet may send their abstract
