CALL FOR PAPERS: Hypothetical Reasoning, 23-24 Aug 2014, Tuebingen, GERMANY

http://ls.informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/hypo/

(In conjunction with ESSLLI 2014, http://www.esslli2014.info/)


Call for contributed talks

 Hypothetical reasoning or reasoning under assumptions is a key concept of
 logic, philosophy of science and mathematics. This conference focusses on its
 logical aspects, such as

- assumption-based calculi and their proof theory
- logical consequence from a proof-theoretic or model-theoretic point of view
- logics of conditionals
- proof systems
- structure of assumption-based proofs
- hypotheses in proof-theoretic semantics
- notions of implication
- substructural logics
- hypotheses in categorial logic
- logical aspects of scientific explanation
- hypothetical reasoning in mathematics
- reasoning from definitions and axioms

 We invite contributed talks on any of these topics. Contributions on related
 topics are welcome, too. We especially encourage young researchers, including
 students, to contribute. There will be 12 slots for contributed talks (30 min)
 and 5 slots for shorter presentations.

 Confirmed invited speakers include:

- Arnon Avron (Tel-Aviv University)
- Kosta Doen (Mathematical Institute, SANU)
- Paul Egr (CNRS, Institut Jean-Nicod, Paris)
- Andrzej Indrzejczak (Institute of Philosophy U?, ?d?)
- Francesca Poggiolesi (CNRS, CEPERC, Aix-en-Provence)

 If you are interested in contributing a talk, please send a one-page abstract
 to Thomas Piecha at Hypo-CfP@informatik.uni-tuebingen.de. The deadline for
 submission is 22 April 2014. We will notify you by 15 May of acceptance or
 rejection.

 This conference is organised as part of the French-German ANR-DFG project
 HYPOTHESES, http://ls.informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/hypotheses/ . The program
 committee consist of the members of this project, http://ls.informatik.uni-tuebingen.de/hypotheses/people.html .

 Participants who do not want to give a talk are also welcome. In that case
