The Peruvian Society for Epistemology and Logic (SPEL) in collaboration with the Logica Universalis Association (LUA), is pleased to introduce the Francisco Miró Quesada Cantuarias Logic Prize, awarded every three years to the best unpublished article written in any area of logic by anyone affiliated to a Peruvian academic institution.

This prize is dedicated to the memory of José Francisco Miró Quesada Cantuarias (1918-2019), who was the most important Peruvian logician. Paco, as he was known, was mainly concerned with building a theory of reason suitable for understanding the most important logical and mathematical discoveries of his time: Gödel’s incompleteness theorems and heterodox logics.

Participants must submit an unpublished paper written in Spanish or English. The article must comply with the contest rules, which can be accessed via the link below. It must, primarily, be submitted prepared for blind review; that is, any indication of the author’s identity, including name, affiliation, email address, etc., must be removed.

The prize, in addition to being an honour, will finance the winner’s participation in the UNILOG 2021 congress (Crete, Greece) to present the paper, and its publication in the journal Logica Universalis, indexed in Scopus.

The winning article will also compete for the Universal Logic Prize against the winning papers of the other regional logic awards promoted by the project A Prize of Logic in Every Country, of the Logica Universalis Association.

For the present edition of the prize, contestants must send their paper through the form linked in the official web of prize by November 1, 2020.
