First Call for Papers for the
XVII Brazilian Logic Conference
(EBL 2014)

7-11 April 2014
Laboratrio Nacional de Computao Cientfica - Petrpolis (RJ)

www.uff.br/ebl


Deadline for submission of papers:

                 *** December 15, 2013 ***


The Brazilian Logic Conference (EBL) is a traditional event on the
agenda of several prominent researchers in Brazil and Latin America
in the areas of Computer Science, Foundations and Philosophy of
Science, Informatics, Artificial Intelligence, Logic and Mathematics.

Previous editions of the EBL have been a great success, attracting
researchers from all over Latin America and elsewhere. The EBL has
become an important meeting point and discussion forum for students
and researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic.

In 2014, the EBL will be held at the National Laboratory for Scientific
Computing (LNCC), at Petrpolis, Rio de Janeiro.

The goal of the EBL is to encourage the dissemination and discussion of
research papers in the area of Logic and their interconnections with the
areas of Computer Science, Foundations and Philosophy of Science,
Informatics, Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics.

EBL 2014 also aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing
work in progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors
on their preliminary research. The proceedings are produced
after the meeting, so that authors can incorporate this feedback
in the published papers.

Topics include:

Philosophical and Mathematical Logic, and Applications;
History and Philosophy of Logic;
Non-classical Logic and Applications;
Philosophy of Formal Sciences;
Foundations of Computer Science, Physics, and Mathematics,

among others.
