2nd CfP: Scandinavian Logic Symposium 2012


20-21 August 2012 at Roskilde University, Denmark

Second Announcement and Call for Papers

The 8th Scandinavian Logic Symposium will be held at Roskilde University, Trekroner,
Denmark, 20-21 August 2012.

After a gap of fifteen years, the Scandinavian Logic Symposium is back. The Symposium is the first major initiative of the newly revived Scandinavian Logic Society (SLS, and will be held at Roskilde University (RUC), Denmark.

As with previous editions of this conference, the aim of the programme is to reflect current activity in logic in our part of the world. So we hope that participants from Scandinavia, the Baltic countries and Northwestern Russia will take the opportunity to contribute a talk and to meet with fellow logicians from the area. But needless to say, we also extend a warm welcome to logicians from further afield and plan to present a varied and interesting collection of invited and contributed talks.

The scope of SLS 2012 is broad, ranging over the whole area of mathematical and philosophical logic, and logical methods in computer science. Suitable topics include (but are not limited to):
Proof Theory and Constructivism
Model Theory (including Finite Model Theory)
Set Theory
Computability Theory
Categorical Logic
Logic and Provability
Logic and Computer Science
Logic and Linguistics
Modal, Hybrid, Temporal, and Description Logic
Logics of Games, Dynamics and Interaction
Philosophy of Mathematics
Philosophy of Computation
Philosophy of Logic
Philosophical Logic

7th Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Uppsala in 1996
6th Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Telemark in 1982
5th Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Aalborg in 1979
4th Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Jyväskylä in 1976
3rd Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Uppsala in 1973
2nd Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Oslo in 1971
1st Scandinavian Logic Symposium: Åbo in 1968
The proceedings of several of these meetings have been published in book form.

The Program Committee is delighted to announce the names of the four invited speakers:
Nikolaj Bjorner
Rosalie Iemhoff (sponsored by The Danish Network for the History and Philosophy of Mathematics)
Per Martin-Löf
Boban Velickovic

On August 22nd, the day after the symposium finishes, a number of tutorials for PhD-students (or anyone else who is interested) will be given. These are intended to start from a relatively elementary level and lead on to current research problems.
The following tutorial lectures have been confirmed so far:
Lars Kristiansen - "Honest subrecursive degree theory"
Sara Negri - "Labelled proof systems for modal logic"
M. H. Sørensen - "Curry-Howard Isomorphism"

Also note that Advances in Modal Logic (AiML) will be held on 22-25 August 2012, Copenhagen, Denmark. URL:

Co-chairs: Neil Jones (Copenhagen) and Erik Palmgren (Stockholm)

Torben Brauner (Roskilde)
Peter Dybjer (Chalmers)
Lars Kristiansen (Oslo)
Øystein Linnebo (Birkbeck)
Sara Negri (Helsinki)
Dag Normann (Oslo)
Asger Törnquist, (Vienna)
Jouko Väänänen (Helsinki)

Patrick Blackburn (RUC), Klaus Frovin Jørgensen (RUC), Stig Andur Petersen (RUC)

Abstracts of talks should be submitted by May 1, 2012 using the EasyChair system
The abstracts may not exceed 3 pages (including bibliography) and should be in PDF format.

Roskilde University (RUC) is situated at Trekroner, a small town 20 minutes by train from Central Copenhagen, and five minutes by train from Roskilde.

Most people who work at RUC and almost all the RUC students live in Copenhagen. Getting to RUC is an easy train journey from the centre of Copenhagen. We anticipate that most conference attendees will book hotels in central Copenhagen, where there are many hotels in many price ranges. Hotel accommodation can also be found in Roskilde, though there the options are more limited.

Details concerning registration will be posted there in due course.
