On "Structurable equivalence relations" by R. Chen and A. Kechris: Introduction
Abstract: For a class $\mathcal{K}$ of countable relational structures, a countable Borel equivalence relation $E$ is said to be $\mathcal{K}$-structurable if there is a Borel way to put a structure from $\mathcal{K}$ on each $E$-equivalence class. The paper of Chen and Kechris [arXiv link] studies the global structure (including Borel homomorphisms and reductions) of the classes of $\mathcal{K}$-structurable equivalence relations for various $\mathcal{K}$. In this introductory talk, we will give some background and survey the main results of the paper.

Anush Tserunyan (UIUC Math)
On "Structurable equivalence relations" by R. Chen and A. Kechris: Universal equivalence relations (2nd talk)
Abstract: In our previous talk, we stated the first main result of the paper: a characterization of the elementary classes of countable equivalence relations. In this second talk, we prove that every elementary class admits a $\sqsubseteq_B^i$-universal equivalence relation. This implies one direction of the aforementioned characterization.

On "Structurable equivalence relations" by R. Chen and A. Kechris: Characterization of elementary classes (3rd talk)
Abstract: In our previous talk, we proved that any elementary class of equivalence relations admits an invariantly injective universal element. This completes one direction of the characterization of elementary classes. In this third talk, we will prove the other direction of the characterization, as well as discuss other results of the paper if time permits.

Aristotelis Panagiotopoulos (UIUC Math)
On "Structurable equivalence relations" by R. Chen and A. Kechris: Structurability by structures with TDC (4th talk)
Abstract: In this talk, we prove a theorem of A. Marks included in the current paper. It says that every aperiodic countable Borel equivalence relation can be $\mathcal{A}$-structured for any countable structure $\mathcal{A}$ with trivial definable closure (TDC). Examples include the rationals, the random graph, and the rational Urysohn sphere.
