17-19 December 2014, Workshop "Vagueness via Nonclassical Logics", Sydney, Australia

Date: 17-19 December 2014
Location: Sydney, Australia
Deadline: 15 October 2014

There is widespread agreement that adequate models of the semantics of vague language and of reasoning with vague information cannot be developed within the confines of classical logic. There is less agreement over which nonclassical logic is best suited for handling vagueness and indeed over whether just one logical framework is sufficient to accommodate all vagueness related phenomena. This workshop will bring together researchers working on these issues in philosophy, logic, mathematics and computer science~with special (but not exclusive) focus on approaches that appeal to degrees of truth and fuzzy logics.
