Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2010 - deadline is approaching

(apologies for multiple copies)

Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2010
September 7 - 11, Prague, Czech Republic

Call For Papers


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

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).

Conference dates:
The scientific program will start Tuesday morning (7th September) and
finish Saturday noon (11th September).

The conference will take place in the building of the School of Computer
Science, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, which
is located in a historical part of the city of Prague called Lesser
Town, close to local attractions like Charles Bridge, and Prague Castle.

Prague offers a variety of accommodation options. There will be
no official conference hotel, so participants are free to make their
own arrangements. However, all participants can use the special offer
