  • 7 - 11 January 2019, "Lean together", workshop on the Lean proof assistant, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Date: 7 - 11 January 2019
    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    From 7-11 January next year there will be a workshop on the Lean proof assistant at the Free University in Amsterdam.

    The workshop will include introductory tutorials, scientific talks, and collaboration time for developers and users. Tutorials will be aimed at a mathematically experienced audience with little background in formal methods. Presentation topics may include (but are not limited to) the development of formal theories and libraries, tools and automation for formalization, the use of proof assistants in mathematics and computer science education, translating between formal and informal mathematics, and theoretical aspects of proof assistants. We welcome relevant work in proof assistants other than Lean. Participants who are interested in giving a talk or running a tutorial or discussion are asked to contact the organizers

  • 21 - 25 January 2019, Syntax Meets Semantics 2019 (SYSMICS 2019), Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    Date: 21 - 25 January 2019
    Location: Doelenzaal, University Library, Singel 425 Amsterdam, the Netherlands
    Deadline: Friday 19 October 2018

    Substructural logics are formal reasoning systems that refine classical logic by weakening structural rules in a Gentzen-style sequent calculus. Traditionally, substructural logics have been investigated using proof theoretic and algebraic methods. In recent years, combined approaches have started to emerge. The programme of the SYSMICS conference will focus on interactions between syntactic and semantic methods in substructural logics. This conference is the last of a series of meetings planned in the SYSMICS RISE project during 2016-2019.

    Speaker: Una Stojnic (Columbia)
    Date & Time: Friday 24 May 2019, 16:00-17:30
    Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • (New) 20 June 2019, Workshop "Bilateral approaches to meaning"

    Date & Time: Thursday 20 June 2019, 18:00
    Location: ILLC, Amsterdam
    Deadline: Friday 15 February 2019

    Traditional semantics gives the meaning of expressions in terms of conditions on one kind of primitive (e.g. truth, assertion, belief). Bilateral approaches hold that the meaning of expressions is characterized in terms of conditions on two, usually opposite primitives (e.g. truth and falsity, assertion and rejection, belief and disbelief). Recent years have witnessed the independent development of a variety of bilateral approaches to analyze phenomena such as negation, epistemic modality and counterfactuals, from both a proof-theoretic and a model-theoretic perspective. The workshop will bring together researchers from either perspective in order to provide a venue for the systematic exploration of commonalities, differences and potential interactions between such approaches.

    Invited speakers: Maria Aloni (ILLC, Amsterdam), Teresa Marques (Logos, Barcelona), Greg Restall (Melbourne) and David Ripley (Monash).
