15-17 July 2009, International Workshop on Hybrid Logic 2009 (HyLo 2009), Nancy, France

Date: 15-17 July 2009
Location: Nancy, France
Deadline: 1 March 2009

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference to worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid logic on the grounds of applications, as the additional expressive power is very useful. In addition, hybrid-logical machinery improves the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism. For example, it becomes considerably simpler to formulate modal proof systems, and one can prove completeness and interpolation results of a generality that is not available in orthodox modal logic. But more generally, the topic of HyLo 2009 is not only standard hybrid-logical machinery (like nominals, satisfaction operators, binders, etc) but also extensions of modal logic that increase its expressive power in one way or other.

HyLo 2009 will be an special event, conmemorating the ten years since the organization of the first HyLo workshop in 1999. HyLo 2009 will be relevant to a wide range of people, including those interested in description logic, feature logic, applied modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues and researchers.

We invite the contribution of papers reporting new work from researchers interested in hybrid logic. Deadline for submissions: Sunday, 1st March 2009
