31 July - 1 August 2022, Workshop "Connections between Epistemic Logic and Topology" (CELT2022), Haifa, Israel

Date: 31 July - 1 August 2022
Time: 23:59
Location: Haifa, Israel
Deadline: Monday 14 February 2022

The link between epistemic logic and topology has its roots, on the one hand, in the topological semantics of modal logic, and on the other hand, in the intimate relations between topology and concurrency, and between topology and distributed computing. Recent years have witnessed an explosion of new work in this area, from the development of more expressive logics capable of capturing fine topological structure, to the leveraging of topological tools to represent concepts such as observations, questions, and dependence relations, and encoding deep connections with distributed computing. The richness of this area has spawned a thriving, interdisciplinary research program with applications in learning theory, network epistemology, public and private communication, inquisitive semantics, philosophy of science, and knowledge representation in distributed computing, among others.

This workshop aims at bringing together scholars working on various ways of connecting logic and topology to showcase a variety of recent developments and applications in the area, and to foster new research collaborations.

The workshop will take place as a part of FLoC 2022—the Federated Logic Conference— in Haifa, Israel, affiliated with LICS. Our workshop will be held in the 2-day, pre-FLoC workshop block (July 31st - August 1st).

We invite submissions for presentations. To apply, please submit an extended abstract of up to 3 pages (excluding bibliography) in PDF format. Abstracts should be submitted via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=celt2022.

Abstract submission deadline: February 14th, 2022.
