The Fourth Annual Colloquiumfest was held in March 2003. We had invited talks on Friday, March 21, and Saturday, March 22. We had several seminar talks in the weeks before and after the Colloquiumfest.

The Fourth Annual Colloquiumfest was generously supported by the Vice-President Academic, the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Science, and the Mathematical Sciences Group.

The emphasis of this colloquiumfest was on

Model Theory and ordered algebraic structures.
