Topic areas


Hypothetical reasoning or reasoning under assumptions is a key concept of
logic, philosophy of science and mathematics. This conference focusses on its
logical aspects, such as

- assumption-based calculi and their proof theory
- logical consequence from a proof-theoretic or model-theoretic point of view
- logics of conditionals
- proof systems
- structure of assumption-based proofs
- hypotheses in proof-theoretic semantics
- notions of implication
- substructural logics
- hypotheses in categorial logic
- logical aspects of scientific explanation
- hypothetical reasoning in mathematics
- reasoning from definitions and axioms

We invite contributed talks on any of these topics. Contributions on related
topics are welcome, too. We especially encourage young researchers, including
students, to contribute. There will be 12 slots for contributed talks (30 min)

- Kosta Došen (Mathematical Institute, SANU)
- Paul Egré (CNRS, Institut Jean-Nicod, Paris)
