Abstract:   I'll review some classical applications of model theory to p-adic varieties and integration, and more recent ones to arc spaces and motivic integration. Many of these depend on little more logic than the notion of a formula, and a quantifier elimination theorem over valued fields. I will then describe recent work towards a structure theory for definable sets.
