24 - 27 September 2018, Trends in Logic XVIII: Fine-Grained Semantics for Modal Logic, Milan, Italy

Date: 24 - 27 September 2018
Location: Milan, Italy
Deadline: Wednesday 30 May 2018

In the last few decades an impressive amount of foundational research in philosophical logic has been devoted to the development of semantical tools which provide sufficiently fine-grained semantics to deal with important topics of pure and applied modal logic, such as the representation of situations, states of affairs, structured contents, hyperintensional contexts, and agent-related attitudes, like epistemic and prohairetic attitudes. A number of different modal frameworks have emerged to tackle these themes. The aim of this conference is to study the potential of these approaches and to explore new connections between them, by providing a forum to present new ideas and analytical methods.

Invited Speakers: Sergei Artemov (New York), Marta Bilkova (Prague), Hannes Leitgeb (Munich) and Sonja Smets (Amsterdam).

We invite submissions for 30 minute presentations, with 10 additional minutes for discussion. We welcome both logical contributions, providing novel solutions to crucial problems in the field, and foundational contributions, focusing on the conceptual frameworks underlying these approaches and the possibility of combining them. We plan to publish Studia Logica special issue on the subject of fine grained semantics based on best conference submissions.
