CFP: Logic Algebra and Truth Degrees 2010

(apologies for multiple copies)


Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2010

September 7 - 11, Prague, Czech Republic

First announcement


Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees is the second official meeting of the
EUSFLAT Working Group on Mathematical Fuzzy Logic (

Mathematical Fuzzy Logic is a subdiscipline of Mathematical Logic which
studies the notion of comparative truth. The assumption that "truth comes
in degrees" has proved to be very useful in many, both theoretical and
applied, areas of Mathematics, Computer Science and Philosophy.

The main goals of this meeting are to foster collaboration between
researchers in the area of Mathematical Fuzzy Logic and to promote
communication and cooperation with members of neighbouring fields.

The featured topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

. Proof systems for fuzzy logics: Hilbert, Gentzen, natural deduction,
tableaux, resolution, computational complexity, etc.

. Algebraic semantics: residuated lattices, MTL-algebras, BL-algebras,
MV-algebras, Abstract Algebraic Logic, functional representation, etc.

. Game-theory: Giles games, Renyi-Ulam games, evaluation games, etc.

. First-order fuzzy logics: axiomatizations, arithmetical hierarchy,
model theory, etc.

. Higher-order fuzzy logical systems: type theories, Fuzzy Class
Theory, and formal fuzzy mathematics.

. Philosophical issues: connections with vagueness and uncertainty.

. Applied fuzzy logical calculi: foundations of fuzzy logical
programming, logic-based reasoning about similarity, fuzzy description
logics, etc.

We also welcome contributions on any relevant aspects of related logical
systems (such as substructural and quantum logics, and many-valued logics
in general).
