21 - 22 February 2020, Celebrating & Commemorating: Engeler's 90th birthday and Specker's centenary, Zürich, Switzerland

Date: 21 - 22 February 2020
Location: Zürich, Switzerland

On February 21 and 22, 2020, we will organize at the ETH Zurich, Switzerland, the meeting "Celebrating and commemorating". In February 2020 will be Ernst Specker's centenary and Erwin Engeler's 90th birthday. The Annual Meeting 2020 of the Swiss Society for Logic and Philosophy of Science will celebrate these two great and big birthdays. Succeeding Paul Bernays, these two prominent scientists from Zurich had a sustainable impact on mathematical logic and its relation to philosophy and informatics in the second half of the 20th century.

The goal of the conference is to recall the work of those two great Swiss logicians and to point to its continuing significance and effectiveness. As this work is at the interface between mathematics, logic, philosophy, informatics and physics, the conference will be of special interest for researchers and students in those different scientific disciplines.
