(New) 14 December 2016, A|C seminar, Andrey KudinovSpeaker: Andrey Kudinov (HSE Moscow)Title: Modal logics of the real lineDate & Time: Wednesday 14 December 2016, 17:00Location: Room G2.02, Science Park 904, Amsterdam.
The real line is probably the most well known and well studied topological space. There are 6 different combinations of languages of this kind (two unimodal and four bimodal). The first modality in bimodal and the modality in unimodal languages we will interpret either using closure or derivation topological operators. For the second modality in bimodal settings we use universal or difference modalities.
We will discuss logics of the real line that arise in all these languages.
(Updated) 15 December 2016, Provability and Modal LogicDate & Time: Thursday 15 December 2016, 10:00-17:00Location: Room F1.15, ILLC, Science Park 107, Amsterdam
The Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation at the University of Amsterdam hosts a workshop on Provability and Modal Logic.
Experts in the field of provability logic and related areas wil give talks on topics related to arithmetic, proof theory, and modal logic.

16 December 2016, Modeling Minds II: Levels of ExplanationDate & Time: Friday 16 December 2016, 09:30-17:30Location: Radboud University Nijmegen, Spinozabuilding, Montessorilaan 3, room A.00.07
In this workshop we aim to bring together philosophers, computational modelers, and cognitive (neuro)scientists to present and discuss different perspectives on levels of explanation. The goal is to build common ground on both the theoretical issues related to levels of explanation in cognitive science and how they inform and guide the daily practice of studying the mind and brain. There will be four invited talks and ample opportunity for discussion. Attendance is free of charge, registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
