CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Logic across the University, 14-16 Oct 2013, Beijing, CHINA

The conference *Logic across the University: Foundations and 
Applications** *will be held on *14-16 October, 2013 *at Tsinghua 
University. (


 Logic has a long tradition at Tsinghua where the modern logic has been 
taught since the 1930s by pioneers like Jin Yuelin.

 In recent years, several initiatives have been taken to make it flourish 
once more. With the support of the newly established School of Humanities 
at Tsinghua University, we are organizing this conference 14-16 October 
2013 and invite an international and Chinese group of speakers to present 
their research works, to show the broad interdisciplinary range of logic 
today, while also strengthening research contacts between Chinese and 
international colleagues.
