Following the previous meetings, the academic setup of the conference 
consists of two main parts:

tutorial sessions on a relevant topic in logic;

(ii) About 15 PhD candidates will give 20-minute presentations on their 
work.

There will also be opportunities for informal gatherings, including a 
conference dinner on Thursday April 24.

The tutorial speakers of this year?s edition are:
