CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: "Proof Theory and Philosophy", 3-5 Dec 2013 , Groningen, THE NETHERLANDS

On December 3-5 2013, the Department of Theoretical Philosophy of the 
Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen will host the workshop ?Proof Theory 
and Philosophy?, jointly organized by the VIDI projects ?The Roots of 
Deduction? ( and 
?Logics for Intelligent Interaction: Expressivity and Succictness? 
(, and the Munich Center 
for Mathematical Philosophy.

 The workshop will begin around 3PM on December 3rd and will end at 1PM on 
December 5th.It will take place at the Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen 
(Oude Boteringestraat 52, Groningen).

 Since its beginnings in the early 20th century, proof theory remains one 
of the main areas of research in logic. However, as logic became 
increasingly ?mathematical?, proof theory?s original connections with 
philosophical questions became somewhat obscured by developments in 
technical and computational aspects and applications.

 This workshop aims at reviving the inherent philosophical interest of 
proof theory, and at showcasing a number of interesting applications that 
the framework can have for long-standing philosophical and logical 
questions. Moreover, it will foster philosophical discussions on the 
foundations of proof theory as an area of inquiry, including the very 
concept of a proof and the conceptual, philosophical import of key results 
such as normalization, cut elimination, admissibility and derivability of 
rules. Finally, since the growing interest in modal proof theory is 
challenging and reshaping philosophical debates, the workshop will provide 
a forum for the discussion of ongoing research across proof theory and 
philosophical logics.
