8-11 July 2014, Trends in Logic XIV "The Road Less Travelled: Off-stream applications of formal methods", Ghent, Belgium

Date: 8-11 July 2014
Location: Ghent, Belgium
Deadline: 20 January 2014

Trends in Logic is the conference series of the journal 'Studia Logica'. The focus of the 14th conference is to be on those applications of formal methods in philosophy which might be of interest to people working on philosophical questions of more direct relevance to human life.

Logicians have devoted considerable effort to applying formal methods to what are now considered core disciplines of analytic philosophy: philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of language and metaphysics. Researchers in these fields have been accused of sharpening their knives without actually cutting anything of interest to those outside of philosophy. The focus of formal methods is changing and our intent for this conference is to further counter the impression of idleness with respect to philosophy at large.

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Submission Deadline (extended): January 20th, 2014.
