"Asian Workshop on Philosophical Logic"  will be held at Research Center for Integrated Science (RCIS), Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) on 17th and 18th March, 2011. 
Our aim is to promote mutual understandings among researchers on logic working in Asian countries, and to establish closer collaborations in future. The scope of the Workshop will cover:

- philosophical logic, non-classical logics, algebraic logic, and their applications in computer science and cognitive science

During the Workshop, we will have a special session of discussions on future collaborations, in particular on research, education and exchange of researchers in our region.

The workshop will start from 9:30 of 17th March and will end in the afternoon of 18th. The venue is at the RCIS seminar room of the 3rd floor of Multidisciplinary Research Center Bldg.
