It is hard to believe but Endre Szemerédi is turning 70 in 2010. The
Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics and the János Bolyai Mathematical
Society are organizing a conference in the summer of 2010 to celebrate
this occasion. The conference will be held August 2-9, 2010 Budapest.
It is well separated from the International Congress of Mathematicians
to be held August 19-27 in Hyderabad, India.

Endre obtained fundamental results in Discrete
Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science
that influenced these areas dramatically and
have also had a significant impact on other
areas like Number Theory and Ergodic Theory.
His proof of the Erdos and Turan 1936
conjecture that any set of integers with
positive upper density contains arbitrarily
long arithmetic progressions has been called
the single most influential result in 20th
century combinatorics. Szemeredi's masterful
solutions to many open problems, his deep
theorems, and ingenious proofs have shaped
the areas of extremal combinatorics, random
graph theory, combinatorial number theory,
discrete geometry, and several areas of
theoretical computer science.
