------------------------- NOTE ON THE COVID-19 CRISIS ------------------------- 

The conference world is severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The organizing and scientific committees of the 3rd Congress of World on Logic and Religion are deeply concerned with the crisis. As our conference is still a few months ahead (November 8-12) and we still cannot say with confidence how the situation will be in two or three months, we cannot yet say anything about a possible postponement of our congress. Ideally, of course, we should keep the original date. However, the physical and psychological health of our speakers and attendees is a priority. As soon as we have a definitive position on this issue we will let everyone know.

-------------------------------- SUBMISSION --------------------------------

We invite submissions of contributed papers on general topics related to Logic and Religion, including but not restricted to:

- Arguments for and against God’s existence

- Logic and the concept of God 

- Science and religion

- Rationality and religious belief

- Argumentation and reason in world religious traditions

- Justification in religious legal traditions

- Non-classical logics and religion

- Religion and history of logic

Abstracts must have a maximum of 600 words and be written in English according to our template; they must be submitted via Easychair by April 3 (note that prior registration with EasyChair is required). Notification of acceptance will be released on April 20, 2020. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the congress.
