6 - 8 December 2021, Trends in Logic XXI "Frontiers of connexive logic", Bochum, Germany

Date: 6 - 8 December 2021
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: Tuesday 14 September 2021

The 21st Trends in Logic international conference will be held at Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, from December 6-December 8, 2021 under the title 'Frontiers of connexive logic'. It is organized by the chairs of Logic and Epistemology and Nonclassical Logic at the Department of Philosophy I of Ruhr University Bochum, in co-operation with Studia Logica.

Modern connexive logic started in the 1960s with seminal papers by Richard B. Angell and Storrs McCall. Systems of connexive logic have been motivated by considerations on a content connection between the antecedent and succedent of valid implications and by applications that range from Aristotle's syllogistic to Categorial Grammar and the study of causal implications. As we are observing some growing interests in topics related to connexive logics, after six annual workshops, the Trends in Logic XXI aims at discussing directions for future research in connexive logics.

Any papers related to connexive logics are welcome. Moreover, we will have a special session on contra-classical logics, and thus any papers related to contra-classical logics are welcome. Submissions of extended abstracts (up to three pages) should be submitted electronically as pdf documents using the EasyChair submission page. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for, and attend, the conference to present their work. Full versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of Studia Logica after an open call for papers.
