CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Spatial Representation and Logic, 11 Oct 2012, Lausanne, SWITZERLAND

www.sgslps.ch

The Swiss Graduate Society of Logic and Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) organises a one-day conference on SPATIAL REPRESENTATION AND LOGIC on October 11 in Lausanne (Switzerland).

The way in which human beings comprehend their spatial environment has always been at the core of philosophical attention. At the beginning of the 20th century, philosophers started developing formal ontological theories that should capture the structural relationships among things in space, thereby giving rise to qualitative geometries. In more recent years, qualitative geometry has become increasingly popular among computer scientists whose aim is to model human behaviour in a natural environment. 
Our workshop will focus on both formal ontological theories of spatial representation, and their applications in Computer Science.

Invited Speakers:
Achille Varzi (Columbia University)
Damiano Costa (University of Geneva)
Felix Lindner (Universitt Hamburg)

Please find a full program on www.sgslps.ch.
All are welcome!

The SGSLPS is a swiss 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.

For the SGSLPS, Marion Haemmerli (Lausanne), Kevin Fournier (Lausanne), Yann Pequignot (Lausanne) 
and Dandolo Flumini (Bern)
