The g oal of this Academy Colloquium is to establish a b asic\n theory of dependence and independence underlying seemingly\n unrelated subjects suc h as bound variables in logic, database\n the ory, the theory of social choice, random variables , Mendelian\n genetics, causality, and even p arts of quantum physics. There\n is an abund ance of new results in this field demonstrating\n remarkable convergence. The concepts of (in)d ependence in the\n different fields of humani ties and sciences have surprisingly\n much in common and a common logic is starting to emerge.< /p>\n \n \n

Young researchers, PhD-students and r esearch master\n students in dependence log ic or related fields are cordially\n invite d to send a proposal for a 20 minutes presentation of\n their research in the Academy Colloqu ium. Although the\n colloquium will be focu sed on dependence logic, the scope of\n the presentations is wider, and other aspects of math ematical,\n computer science and philosophi cal logic pertaining to\n dependence and in dependence concepts or team semantics will be\n accepted as well. Submission deadline: 14 Feb ruary 2014.\n
