The objectives of the conference include:
- Provide a forum for logicians/set theorists/topologists/universal algebraists to disseminate their work to each other, providing opportunities for collaborations and new lines of research to be developed.
- Bring together leaders in each field from around the world with at least one specialist in each of the six fields covered by BLAST (Boolean algebra, lattice theory, algebraic logic, universal algebra, set theory, set theoretic and point-free topology).
- Provide a conference accessible to graduate students and young researchers.
- Provide a venue for graduate students and young researchers to showcase their work, provide the opportunity for them to interact with leading researchers in the field, and provide exposure to related areas early in their careers. Encourage and support participation of underrepresented groups whenever possible.
