CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Logic, Relativity and Beyond, 23-27 Aug 2017, Budapest, HUNGARY

There are several new and rapidly evolving research areas blossoming out from the interaction of 
logic and relativity theory. The aim of this conference series, which take place once every 2 or

The spirit of this conference series goes back to the Vienna Circle and Tarski's initiative Logic, 
Methodology and Philosophy of Science. We aim to provide a friendly atmosphere that enables 
fruitful cooperation leading to joint research and publications. This 3rd conference is also 
dedicated to honoring Hajnal Andréka's 70th birthday.
