The Thirteenth Asian Logic Conference will be held in Guangzhou from 
September 16 to 20, 2013. The Asian Logic Conference series is sponsored 
by the Association for Symbolic Logic and the meetings are major 
international events in mathematical logic. The series features the latest 
scientific developments in the fields in mathematical logic and 
applications, logic in computer science, and philosophical logics. It also 
aims at promoting activities of mathematical logic in the Asia-Pacific 
region and bringing logicians both from within Asia and elsewhere together 
to exchange information and ideas.

From 1981 to 2008, the Asian Logic Conference has been held triennially 
and rotated among countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The previous 
meetings took place in Singapore (1981), Bangkok (1984), Beijing (1987), 
Tokyo (1990), Singapore (1993), Beijing (1996), Hsi-Tou (1999), Chongqing 
(2002), Novosibirsk (2005) and Kobe (2008). In year 2008, the East Asian 
and Australasia Committees of the Association of Symbolic Logic decided to 
shorten the three year cycle to two. The new cycle of ALC started in 
Singapore (2009), Wellington(2011).

The program will cover a wide range of topics and will feature plenary 
lectures presented by leading specialists in every major area of 
mathematical logic. In addition there will be many contributed talks.
