Limited financial support is available to partially offset travel 
expenses of some participants. The criteria for granting support 
include whether the participant has alternative financial support for 
the conference, and whether the participant is presenting a talk at 
the conference. Preference is given to graduate students and early 
career researchers. The amount of support is contingent on the budget 
constraints. University accounting regulations require completing 
certain forms appropriately and submitting original receipts of 
expenses before issuing checks.

To apply for support, email the organizers at

     best at math.boisestate.edu

Applications from graduate students must be supported by a separate 
email from their thesis advisor.

Anyone interested in participating should contact the organizers as 
soon as possible by sending an email to

     best at math.boisestate.edu

The organizers will be editors for a volume in the Contemporary 
Mathematics series. Research papers on topics related to Set Theory 
and its Applications will be considered for publication in this 
volume. All papers will go through a thorough referee process. Former 
and current participants of the BEST conferences or their 
collaborators are especially encouraged to consider submitting a 
research paper. Anyone interested in submitting a paper should 
contact Marion Scheepers as soon as possible at 
marion at math.boisestate.edu with this information. More information 
will be posted at the conference web site.

The conference is supported by a grant from the National Science 
Foundation. Abstract services are provided by Atlas Conferences, Inc. 
Contemporary Mathematics is published by the American Mathematical 
Society. Support from these three organizations is gratefully acknowledged.
