12 - 14 September 2019, Workshop: Assertion and Proof (WAP 2019), Lecce, Italy

Date: 12 - 14 September 2019
Location: Lecce, Italy
Deadline: Friday 5 July 2019

The notion of assertion plays a key inferential role and has a long tradition in logic. It is a key ingredient in most logical systems, either implicitly or explicitly. The idea of assertion thus appears strongly invariant across a range of logical theories, logical methods, and logical notations.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together scholars interested in the analysis of the logical notion of assertion and other related notions such as inference, proof, argument, meaning of logical constants that may receive an assertion-based interpretation.

A satellite event to WAP 2019 is the workshop "Peirce on Assertion".
