CFP: Workshop on Logic and Information (5th UNILOG) — Deadline Extended

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Workshop at the Fifth World Conference on Universal Logic 
25-30 June 2015 
University of Istanbul

In this workshop we want to approach the relation between logic and information from the perspective of the philosophy of information, as well as from a logical perspective, and draw attention to a number of questions that have historically received attention, or have only been individuated in recent years. These include the possibility of a genuine informational conception of logical consequence, the relation between informational and computational approaches, the relation between information and logics of questions, and the difference between (what van Benthem calls) implicit informational stances in logic like that of intuitionist logic and explicit stances like that of epistemic logic.
