CFP: Progic 2011 at Columbia University, 10-11 September

Probability and Logic, New York NY (U.S.A.)

The Progic conference series is intended to promote interactions between 
probability and logic. The fifth installment of the series will be held at 
Columbia University in New York on September 10th and 11th of 2011. While 
several of the earlier Progic meetings included a special focus, Progic 2011 
will honor Haim Gaifman's contributions to the intersection of probability and 
logic. Progic 2011 will consist of 11 talks, 6 invited and 5 contributed. The 
following distinguished speakers have been confirmed:

Horacio Arlo-Costa (Carnegie Mellon)
Haim Gaifman (Columbia)
Rohit Parikh (CUNY)
Jeff Paris (Manchester)
Dana Scott (Carnegie Mellon)

Call for Papers: The five contributed papers will be selected from among the 
submissions that we receive. Submissions may be on any topic that is relevant 
to the interaction between probability and logic. Preference will be given to 
papers that make contact with at least one of the relevant themes in Haim 
Gaifman's work. All submissions should be sent to by May 1 of 2011. Decision notices will be sent 
by June 1 of 2011.

Special Issue: We have made arrangements to publish all 11 papers from the 
conference in a special issue of the Journal of Applied Logic.
