Reasoning is at the very heart of logic, constituting its subject matter. In the last few decades, there has been considerable progress both in the purely logical analysis of reasoning and in applied logical investigations of various concrete subject domains, such as philosophical and scientific discourse, logic programming and everyday communication. Along with further elaboration of standard techniques a range of other approaches and semantic modeling of logical systems are being developed. Moreover, there is a powerful tradition of analyzing and evaluating reasoning patterns by means of informal logic and argumentation theory. . The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars working in various areas of proof-theoretic, semantic, argumentative and informal logic analysis.

 Invited Speakers: Hans van Ditmarsch (French National Centre for Scientific Research, France), Valentin Goranko (Stockholm University, Sweden), Dale Hample (University of Maryland, USA) and Hitoshi Omori (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany).
