26 August 2019, 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advancement in Concurrency and Logic (RADICAL 2019) , Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation: Amsterdam, The NetherlandsDeadline: Friday 21 June 2019
Concurrency and Logics are two of the most active research areas in the theoretical computer science domain. The literature in these fields is extensive and provides a plethora of logics and models for reasoning about intelligent and distributed systems. More recently, the interplay of concurrency and logic with other research areas has received much attention, as witnessed by recent editions of AI conferences. All these examples share the challenge of developing novel theories and tools for automated reasoning that take into account the behaviour of concurrent and multi-agent entities.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers working on different aspects of logic and concurrency in AI, multi-agent systems, and computer science, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. Besides, it aims to promote research on Foundation of AI in other research communities that are traditionally Theoretical Computer Science-oriented.For more information, see https://sites.google.com/site/radicalconcur/.

It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world.
The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited lectures.
