Most of us share the feeling that the teaching of an
interdisciplinary field spanning logic, linguistics and computer
science should be available in such a way that will facilitate
further interdisciplinary research. Nevertheless, we are aware
that the needs are different in those fields of study which have
already been stablished. The overall concern is in the teaching
of logic, but with special regard in addressing innovations and
the systematization of educational activity. We believe that the
role of logic in the shaping of the epistemology of this XXI
creature should be crucial; Information technology is rapidly
changing the world we live in, and logic is helping us to
produce, distribute and process information, as well as to
understand how coded information can modify people's state of
knowlege. At the University of Salamanca the First International
Congress on Tools for Teaching Logic took place in June 2000. A
number of logicians from different countries in Europe, the US
and South America gathered there to focus on education on the
interfaces between philosophy, linguistics, mathematics,
computer science and related disciplines.

The organizing committee invites you to take part in the Second
International Congress on Tools for Teaching Logic, which will
be held in Salamanca on September 26-30, 2006. There will be
lectures, discussion sessions, round tables and software
demonstrations. You are kindly invited to take active part in
these sessions and to exhibit your teaching or professional
software. We invite submission of papers on all aspects of
teaching logics, including the following main topics:

1. Issues, Means and Objectives in Teaching Logic.
2. Teaching the Role of Logic in Science and Humanities.
3. Teaching Logic Research in a Postgraduate Programme.
4. Software for Teaching Logic and Reasoning.
5. e-Learning Logic: Resources and Challenges.
