2nd CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: PhDs in Logic V, 8-10 Apr 2013, Munich, GERMANY


The fifth edition of PhDs in Logic will take place at the Munich
Center for Mathematical Philosophy. PhDs in Logic is a graduate
conference organized by local graduate students. Its aim is to bring
together graduate students and researchers as well as to foster
contact between graduate students. Earlier editions of the event took
place in Ghent (2009, 2012), Tilburg (2010), and Brussels (2011).

Following the previous meetings, the academic pattern is formed by two
main parts:

- tutorials given by researchers in logic

- 20 to 25 min presentations by graduate students on topics pertaining
to their research

Besides that there will be opportunities for informal gatherings
including a conference dinner

The invited tutorial speakers for this year's edition are Mai Gehrke
(Universit Paris Diderot),  Thomas Streicher (TU Darmstadt), Olivier
Roy (LMU Munich), and Ole Hjortland (LMU Munich). All speakers have
provisionally accepted our invitation.

PhD students interested in presenting a talk should send a 500-1000
word abstract to phdsinlogic@gmail.com by January 15th, 2013. We
welcome PhD students in logic with a background in philosophy,
computer science, mathematics or linguistics. Exceptions can be made
for master students and first-year postdocs.
