2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: PhDs in Logic IV, 12-13 April 2012, Gent, BELGIUM


PhDs in Logic IV is a graduate conference organized by and for PhD-students. 
This edition is the fourth one of an annual Belgian?Dutch happening; earlier 
editions took place in Ghent (2009), Tilburg (2010), and Brussels (2011).
As all previous PhDs in Logic conferences, this two-day graduate conference 
follows this threefold plan:
* Four established tutorial speakers will each give two one-hour tutorial 
sessions on a relevant topic in logic.
* Ten to twenty PhD students are given the opportunity to do a presentation on 
their own work.
* Networking will be encouraged by providing for generous breaks and by having 
lunch with the entire group.

The invited tutorial speakers for this year's edition are Valentin Goranko 
(Technical University of Denmark), Alessandra Palmigiano (University of 
Amsterdam), Heinrich Wansing (Ruhr University Bochum), and Andreas Weiermann 
(Ghent University). We can already provide the topics of two tuturials:

Valentin Goranko - Temporal Logics for Reasoning about Computations in 
Transition Systems
Alessandra Palmigiano - Algebraic Modal Correspondence

Titles and abstracts for all tutorials will soon be announced through the 
website.

PhD students interested in doing a talk should send a 500-1000 word abstract to 
phdsinlogic@gmail.com by January 15th, 2012. We welcome PhD students in logic 
with a background in philosophy, computer science or mathematics. Exceptions 
can be made for master students and first-year postdocs.
