The 6th UNILOG – WORLD CONGRESS AND SCHOOL ON UNIVERSAL LOGIC will take place in Vichy, France, June 16-26, 2018 after previous editions in Montreux 2005, Xi’an 2007, Lisbon 2010, Rio 2013 and Istanbul 2015: http://www.uni-log.org/vichy2018
Along these years UNILOG has been a leading international logical event with the participation of many famous logicians such as Wilfrid Hodges, Daniele Mundici, Saul Kripke, Jaakko Hintikka, Dov Gabbay, Arnon Avron, Benedikt Löwe, David Makinson, Yde Venema, Newton da Costa, Mike Dunn, Val Goranko, Yuri Gurevich, Janusz Czelakowski, Stephen Read, Sara Negri, Arnold Koslow, Peter Schröder-Heister, Gila Sher, Hiroakira Ono, John Corcoran, Hartry Field, Gerhard Jaeger, Ernest Lepore, Marcus Kracht, Melvin Fitting, Luciano Floridi, Patrick Blackburn, Jan Wolenski, Krister Segerberg, Dale Jacquette, Sun-Joo Shin, Jouko Väänänen, John Woods and many more.
UNILOG is a logic event in a broad sense. It gathers people from many horizons (philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, computer science, semiotics, cognitive science …) and the idea is to promote interaction between all these people.
The previous edition in Istanbul gathered more than 400 logicians from about 50 different countries.
For the 6th edition we will follow the same format:
- A school of logic of 5 days with 30 tutorials
- A congress of 6 days with about 30 sessions/workshops
- A contest (the topic will be announced soon)
- A secret speaker (speaker whose identity is revealed only at the time of her / its / his speech).
Vichy is a charming relaxing thermal city at the middle of France, developed by Napoleon III in the second half of the 19th century, who in particular created beautiful parks with species of trees from all over the world. Vichy, in the Duchy of Bourbon, a region full of castles, is a small city, where it is possible to go everywhere just by walking. The event will take place at the university campus nearby the Celestins spring, the banks of the Allier river (where it is possible to swim) and the city center. June is a very nice time to be in Vichy with lots of animations, including on June 21 a very lively musical day celebrating summertime.
Deadline to submit an abstract: September 15, 2017
Looking forward to seeing you in Vichy in June 2018.
