CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Proof Theory, Modal Logic and Reflection Principles, 29 Sep to 2 Oct 2014, Mexico City, MEXICO

http://personal.us.es/dfduque/PMR/

AIMS AND SCOPE

The second edition of the conference series Proof Theory, Modal Logic and 
Reflection Principles (formerly Proof Theory and Modal Logic) will be held 
in Mexico City from September 29th to October 2nd 2014, following the 
first installment in Barcelona in 2012.

A recent approach to proof theory uses techniques from modal logic to 
compute the consistency strength of formal theories. As a result one 
obtains, among other benefits, semi-finitary consistency proofs in the 
spirit of the extended Hilbert?s programme.

This approach requires techniques from many disciplines; the aim of this 
workshop is to bring together experts in relevant fields in order to 
discuss recent advances and foster new collaborations. Topics include, but 
are not limited to

+ Turing-Feferman progressions
+ Provability logics and algebras
+ Proof-theory of arithmetic and analysis
+ Ordinal analysis
+ Point-set topology
+ Set theory
+ Model theory

DATES AND VENUE

The workshop will be held in Instituto Tecnolgico Autnomo de Mxico, 
situated in one of the oldest and most charming districts in Mexico City.
