LOGIC COLLOQUIUM 2001
The LC2001, the 2001 European Summer Meeting of the Association
of Symbolic Logic (ASL) will take place in Vienna. The LC2001
starts on Monday, August 6 and runs till Saturday, August 11.
The conference venues are the Vienna University of Technology
and the University of Vienna.
These venues were chosen to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the
publication of Gödel's famous Incompleteness Theorem. In 1931
Kurt Gödel was working in Vienna and lecturing at the University
The Logic Colloquium is the major international conference which
integrates all fields of mathematical logic and its applications.
Owing to its interdisciplinary and foundational character, it brings
together outstanding researchers and students not only in classical
logic, but also in fields such as theoretical computer science,
computational logic, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and
philosophy of logic and mathematics.
The Logic Colloquium provides an important opportunity
for young researchers to disseminate their results and to obtain
feedback both from their peers and from senior members of the
The program will include 15 plenary talks, featuring among
others, lectures by Olga Kharlampovich (who recently solved
Tarski's problem), Saharon Shelah, and Toshiyasu Arai.
The 'Colloquium' has 6 different sessions:
Proof Theory and Proof Search
Philosophy and History of Logic
Computer Science and Complexity Theory
In addition, the LC2001 will include two tutorials. Owing to the
scientific heritage of Vienna, two evening events have been planned,
which are open to the public.
SUBMISSION of ABSTRACTS.
Abstracts of contributed talks are limited to 300 words, including
