7th INDIAN CONFERENCE ON LOGIC AND ITS APPLICATIONS
January 5–7, 2017
IIT Kanpur, India
CALL FOR PAPERS
ALI, the Association for Logic in India, announces the seventh edition of
its biennial International Conference on Logic and its Applications
(ICLA), to be held at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, from
January 5 to 7, 2017. ICLA 2017 will be co-located with the Methods for Modalities Workshop to be held during January 8-10, 2017.
ICLA is a forum for bringing together researchers from a wide variety of
fields in which formal logic plays a significant role, along with
mathematicians, computer scientists, philosophers and logicians studying foundations of formal logic in itself. A special feature of this conference is the inclusion of
studies in systems of logic in the Indian tradition, and historical
research on logic. Details of the last ICLA (2015) may be found at
The earlier events in this series featured many eminent logicians as
invited speakers, and we are pleased to announce that this year's
speakers will include:
Nicholas Asher, IRIT Toulouse
Natasha Dobrinen, University of Denver
Luke Ong, University of Oxford
Richard Zach, University of Calgary
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research in any area of logic and applications. Articles on mathematical and philosophical logic, computer science logic, foundations and philosophy of mathematics and the sciences, use of formal logic in areas of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, logic and linguistics, history of logic, Indian systems of logic, or on the relationship between logic and other branches of knowledge, are welcome.
Submissions must be in English and should provide sufficient detail to
allow the programme committee to assess the merits of the paper. The
