CfP special issue of LJIGPL on non-classical modal and predicate logics, Deadline: 31 Oct 2022


                      Call for papers

       *** Non-classical Modal and Predicate Logics ***
          special issue of the Logic Journal of the IGPL

Modalities and predicates have since ancient times been central
notions of logic.  In the 20th century, various systems of non-
classical logics emerged, with applications mainly in Computer
Science, but also in many other disciplines such as Linguistics,
Mathematics, and Philosophy. Both the theoretical studies and
the needs of applications gave rise to the questions of non-
classical treatment of quantification and modalities and their
accommodation in these non-classical logics. In response,
various modal and predicate variants of non-classical logics
have been introduced and studied in the past decades.

This special issue is solely dedicated to modal and predicate
non-classical logics. Its aim is to bring together papers on
both pure and applied aspects of various branches of non-
classical logics, not only to present recent advances in their
particular fields, but mainly foster the exchange of ideas
between researchers focusing on (1) separate branches of non-
classical logic and (2) foundational and applied issues.

We invite submissions on both (a) theoretical topics from
all branches of mathematical logic (e.g., proof-theory,
model theory, game theory, computational complexity, etc.),
as well as (b) their applications in various areas (including
computer science, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, etc.).

Topics of interest:

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* The study of first- or higher-order variants of non-
    classical logics, including, but not limited to:
    - Predicate intuitionistic and superintuitionistic logics
    - Predicate modal logics (e.g. epistemic, tense, action)
    - Predicate substructural logics
    - Predicate many-valued and partial logics
    - Predicate paraconsistent logics
    - Predicate conditional logic
    - Predicate non-monotonic logics

* Non-classical theories of quantification over classical
    logic, such as:
    - Free logics
    - Branching quantifiers and IF-logic
    - Generalized quantifiers

* Extensions by modalities of (propositional or predicate)
    non-classical logics, including:
    - Modal extensions of (super)intuitionistic, substructural,
      many-valued, paraconsistent, non-monotonic, etc., logics
    - Co-algebraic treatment of modalities

* Applications of non-classical modal and predicate logics
    in various areas, including:
    - Computer science
    - Linguistics and logical analysis of natural language
    - Philosophy
    - Methodology of science
    - Foundations of mathematics (non-classical mathematics)
    - Mathematical social sciences (e.g. social choice theory,
                  game theory, decision theory)

== Deadline for submissions ==

October 31, 2022

== Submissions ==

Papers should be submitted via EasyChair 

The submissions should be formatted according to the Journal's
guidelines (https://academic.oup.com/jigpal/pages/General_Instructions).
All submissions will undergo the usual peer-review process by the
standards of the Logic Journal of the IGPL.

== Guest editors ==

Libor Behounek (University of Ostrava)
Marta Bilkova (Czech Academy of Sciences)
Heinrich Wansing (Ruhr University Bochum)

== A related conference ==

This special issue is a follow-up of the conference Non-classical
Modal and Predicate Logics, organized in Bochum, Germany,
23-26 November, 2021 (https://sites.google.com/view/ncmpl2021).
Although the scope of the special issue is identical with that
of the conference, the submissions are not restricted to papers
presented at the conference or papers by the participants.
Rather, the call is open and any papers within the scope of
the special issue are welcome.
