  • 21 - 25 January 2019, Syntax Meets Semantics 2019 (SYSMICS 2019), Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    Date: 21 - 25 January 2019
    Location: Doelenzaal, University Library, Singel 425 Amsterdam, the Netherlands
    Deadline: Friday 19 October 2018

    Substructural logics are formal reasoning systems that refine classical logic by weakening structural rules in a Gentzen-style sequent calculus. Traditionally, substructural logics have been investigated using proof theoretic and algebraic methods. In recent years, combined approaches have started to emerge. The programme of the SYSMICS conference will focus on interactions between syntactic and semantic methods in substructural logics. This conference is the last of a series of meetings planned in the SYSMICS RISE project during 2016-2019.
