Second Call: Logic, Algebra, and Truth Degrees 2012

Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2012

Second Call for Papers

=== Deadline for contributed talks: 22 April 2012 ===
=== Application for grants available ===

The third official meeting of the EUSFLAT Working Group on Mathematical
Fuzzy Logic [1] will be held on 10-14 September 2012 in Kanazawa, Japan.
The conference is organized by Research Center for Integrated Science [2],
Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology [3].

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 goal of this meeting is 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, Rényi-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 logical programming,
logic-based reasoning about similarity, 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).
