The Swiss Graduate Society of Logic and Philosophy of Science (SGSLPS) organises a one-day conference on PHILOSOPHICAL MODAL LOGIC on October 7 in Geneva.

Modal logic is a type of logic that extends the standards of formal logic to include the elements of modality. Modalities, expressed by the modal operators box and diamond, permit to qualify the truth of a judgement. Widely studied from a mathematical and theoretical point of view, modal logic has nonetheless been a valuable instrument for the formal analysis of philosophical arguments, and has found important applications in computer science.
