CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Philosophical Modal Logic, 7 October 2011, SWITZERLAND

Geneva (Switzerland)

The Swiss Graduate Society of Logic and Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) organises a one-day 
conference on PHILOSOPHICAL MODAL LOGIC on October 7 in Geneva.

Modal logic is a type of logic that extends the standards of formal logic to include the elements 
of modality. Modalities, expressed by the modal operators box and diamond, permit to qualify the 
truth of a judgement. Widely studied from a mathematical and theoretical point of view, modal logic
has nonetheless been a valuable instrument for the formal analysis of philosophical arguments, 
and has found important applications in computer science.

Invited Speakers:
*Prof. Fabrice Correia* (University of Geneva), Modal logic from a philosopher's perspective 
*Dr. Sara Uckelman* (ILLC, Amsterdam), Modal Logic: Medieval and Modern Perspectives 
*Dr. Alessandro Giordani* (Universit Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano), Explicit Modal Logic

Please find a full program on .
All are welcome!

The SGSLPS is an association of advanced undergraduate and graduate students concerned with logic 
and/or philosophy of science. Its aim is to promote logic among young scientists of a wide range 
of disciplines including, but not restricted to, mathematics, philosophy and computer science. 
It presents high level introductory events on chosen topics from the field of logic to all those 
with an interest in this domain.
