11-12 December 2008, Trends in Logic VI: Logic and the foundations of physics, Brussels, Belgium

Date: 11-12 December 2008
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Deadline: 15 September 2008

The main goal of this conference is to present current trends situated at the interface of Logic and the Foundations of Physics. The conference will bring together researchers from both fields, giving them a forum to present new developments, exchange ideas, explore and establish new connections between logic and physics. On the one hand, we are interested in technical contributions on the use of new methods and techniques coming from logic, computation and information theory to axiomatize and model physical theories and to reason about their concepts, phenomena and/or applications. On the other hand, we are interested in contributions coming from the foundations and philosophy of physics dealing with the general conceptual framework and with questions of interpretation. In particular, we solicit contributions that merge new developments in logic and physics, focusing for instance on how the use of techniques from logic can be combined with insights in physics to yield a new perspective on the main foundational issues and open problems in modern physics.
