27-28 June 2006, PALMYR-3, Paris, France

Date: 27-28 June 2006
Location: Paris, France
Deadline: 16 April 2006

Each PALMYR consists of two workshops, one in Paris and one in Amsterdam, and is aimed at fostering connections between two lively logic communities. This year's first meeting will be in Paris on June 27th and 28th, and will have as a theme "What is the relationship between logic and reasoning?" As in the previous editions, each talk will be commented.

For a long time, logic and reasoning have been bedfellows, for better or for worst. Boole viewed logic as nothing less than An investigation into the Laws of Thought, while Frege argued for an irrevocable split up. But even if modern logical literature abound with attempts at getting closer to real-life reasoning (e.g. epistemic, fuzzy, conditional, intensional, paraconsistent, and other "non-classical" logics) the state of their relationship is still unclear. Does logic describe reasoning? Does it provide normative standards for reasoning? For this third PALMYR, we are looking for researchers from, but not only, Paris or Amsterdam interested to share their opinion on this long-standing relationship.

Interested researchers should submit electronically a one-page (12pt) abstract before April 16th (extended deadline).
