CF Participation: FIRST PhD Autumn School on Modal Logic

http://hylocore.ruc.dk/m4m6school.html

Call for Participation

             FIRST PhD Autumn School on Modal Logic

              IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark
                      November 10-11 2009

          


The goal of the Autumn School on Modal Logic is to prepare PhD
students and other researchers for participation in the sixth workshop
Methods for Modalities (M4M-6) which takes place November 12-14 2009
in Copenhagen. The workshop Methods for Modalities aims to bring
together researchers interested in developing proof tools and decision
methods based on modal logics. Here the term "modal logics" is
conceived broadly, including description logic, guarded fragments,
conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc. The first M4M
workshop took place in Amsterdam in 1999. Since then, M4M workshops
have taken place in 2001 (Amsterdam), 2003 (Nancy), 2005 (Berlin), and
2007 (Paris). See

                        
for more information on the workshop series, in particular, see why
modal logic is important for computer science. A goal of having M4M
in Denmark is to strengthen Danish research in reasoning methods for
modal logics, which is a growing area of foundational and increasingly
computational importance.

The Autumn School on Modal Logic is open to anyone interested. The
intended participants will have a general background in theoretical
computer science, but wish to obtain more concrete knowledge on modal
logic and its computational aspects. Besides a working knowledge of
English, prerequisites are a basic knowledge of logic and mathematics
that is usually covered in undergraduate classes on discrete
mathematics.


Lecturers and topics:

Computational Modal Logic
Carlos Areces and Patrick Blackburn, INRIA, Nancy

Temporal Logics for Specification and Verification
Valentin Goranko, Technical University of Denmark

The Judgmental Reconstruction of Modal Logic
Carsten Schrmann, IT University of Copenhagen

Resolution-Based Theorem Proving for Modal and Description Logic
Renate Schmidt, University of Manchester

Hybrid Deduction
Patrick Blackburn, INRIA, Nancy


Time and place:

The Fall school will take place at the IT University of Copenhagen
November 10 and 11 2009.
