28 - 30 September 2017, Warsaw Workshop on Formal Truth Theories, Warsaw, Poland

Date: 28 - 30 September 2017
Location: Warsaw, Poland
Deadline: Monday 15 May 2017

The notion of truth has been a long-standing centre of attention for logicians, philosophers and mathematicians. In particular, the logical properties of formal theories of truth have been revealed to be relevant to various philosophical questions, such as to discussions on deflationism, sources of semantic paradoxes, philosophical foundations of arithmetic, and many others.

The present Warsaw Workshop on Formal Truth Theories will contribute to the efforts having as their purpose a deeper understanding of the concept of truth. The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers in logic, philosophy and mathematics addressing a wide range of truth-related topics in order to maintain common ground for new research, to discuss latest results and work in progress and to simply foster cooperation of researchers studying the notion of truth from different perspectives.

The workshop will include a session of contributed talks. Authors of contributed papers are requested to submit abstracts in pdf format of around 1000-1500 words by May 15th 2017. Authors of the accepted papers will have 30 minutes to present their work, including discussion.
