Luminy (France) 2009, Notre Dame (USA) 2010, and Cape Town (South

Authors are invited to submit a PDF abstract (typically 1-2 pages) via
the following web page:

No full papers will be required for this conference.


No proceedings will be published before the conference. A booklet with
abstracts will be made available at the conference. It is planned to
publish post-conference proceedings in a special issue of some journal
afterwards. The special issue will be refereed according to the usual
standards of the journal.


The Isaac Newton Institute has limited funds for supporting
participants. Applications for funding are particularly welcomed from
early career researchers and those from under-represented groups.
Funding may be available to support attendance, including from the
Institute's Junior Membership scheme for eligible participants.

Additional funding is pending. Funding opportunities for student members
of the
Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL) are anticipated.
