CALL FOR PAPERS: "The Life and Work of Leon Henkin" (Essays on His Contributions)

Call for papers to the volume The Life and Work of Leon Henkin (Essays on
His Contributions). Mara Manzano, Ildiko Sain and Enrique Alonso eds.

Springer Basel is going to publish a volume of contributed papers devoted
to the life and work of Leon Henkin. This volume will appear in the
Studies in Universal Logic series. Algebraic logic, model theory, type
theory, completeness theorems, philosophical and foundational studies are
among the topics we would like to cover, as well as mathematical
education. We plan to discuss Henkin's intellectual development, his
relation to his predecessors and contemporaries, and his impact in recent
development of mathematical logic. To our knowledge, no books of this kind
have been published.

This is a call for papers inviting all the interested people to send a
contribution. The book is intended to include several invited
contributions and articles that will be selected from the submitted
material. We are going to elaborate a monographic study on:
i.      Henkin?s scientific works.
ii.     The influence of his work throughout the development of contemporary
Logic and Mathematics.
iii.    His personal interest in teaching and the didactics of formal
sciences with special attention to underrepresented minorities; in
particular,  mathematically talented minority undergraduate students

The articles must comply with one of two modalities:
a.      Research articles which must pertain to one of the three themes listed
b.      Biographic notes in the form of short stories that describe personal
experiences related with the figure of Leon Henkin as a professor,
lecturer, investigator or pedagogue.

The deadline for the submission is September 2013.

We feel that it is about time for a comprehensive book on the life and
works of Leon Henkin to be written. It will include both foundational
material and a logic perspective.
