9-24 July 2014, Vienna Summer of Logic, Vienna, Austria

Date: 9-24 July 2014
Location: Vienna, Austria

In the summer of 2014, Vienna will host the largest event in the history of logic. The Vienna Summer of Logic (VSL) will consist of twelve large conferences and numerous workshops, attracting an expected number of 2500 researchers from all over the world.

The conferences and workshops will deal with the main theme, logic, from three important aspects: logic in computer science, mathematical logic and logic in artificial intelligence. This unique event will be organized by the Kurt Goedel Society at Vienna University of Technology from July 9 to 24, 2014

*Keynote Speakers* The VSL keynote speakers are Franz Baader (Technische Universitaet Dresden), Edmund Clarke (Carnegie Mellon University), Christos Papadimitriou (University of California, Berkeley) and Alex Wilkie (University of Manchester). Dana Scott (Carnegie Mellon University) will speak in the opening session.

At the Vienna Summer of Logic, the Kurt Goedel Society will award three fellowship prizes endowed with 100.000 Euro each to the winners of the Kurt Goedel Research Prize Fellowship Competition "Logical Mind: Connecting Foundations and Technology."

The Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) 2014 will host the 1st FLoC Olympic Games. Intended as a new FLoC tradition, the Games will bring together a multitude of established solver competitions by different research communities. In addition to the competitions, the Olympic Games will facilitate the exchange of expertise between communities, and increase the visibility and impact of state-of-the-art solver technology. The winners in the competition categories will be awarded Kurt Goedel medals at the FLoC Olympic Games award ceremonies.

To ensure that all the scientific and social meetings taking place in the course of the VSL can be conducted successfully, the organizers of the VSL are solliciting volunteers, to help with tasks such as the registration of the participants at the conference or assisting with the use of the technical infrastructure at the conference site. Volunteers may attend all the VSL conferences for free.
