Studia Logica International Conference
Trends in Logic IV
Towards Mathematical Philosophy
Torun, Poland, September 1-4,  2006


Conference goals:
The leading idea of Lvov-Warsaw School of Logic, philosophy and mathematics
to investigate the philosophical problems by means of rigorous methods of
mathematics. Since its very first issue Studia Logica has joined forces of
mathematicians and philosophers in carrying out logical investigations. The
are many elaborate mathematical theories that find their origin in philosop
and have had a big impact on both philosophy and mathematics. For a couple 
decades we have been witnessing the fruitful application of strictly
mathematical methods to handling more and more philosophical problems.

The main goal of the conference is to present current trends in applying
mathematical methods to philosophical problems.

Call for papers: We invite the contributions concerning applications of
mathematical methods to philosophical problems. Especially, but not
exclusively, we invite contributions on:

- The theory of consequence operations.
- Logical systems within artificial intelligence.
- Many-valued logics, fuzzy logic  and its applications to computer science
- Logical structure of natural languages, categorial grammar and substructu
- Theories of truth.
- Modal logics.
- Paraconsistent logics.
- Logical systems of quantum mechanics.
- Formal epistemology  applying logical, probabilistic, game-theoretic, and
other mathematical methods to epistemology.
- Logical systems of cognitive science, especially those utilizing methods 
systems of belief revision, non-monotonic logic, dynamic epistemic logic.
- Contemporary broadly understood deontic logic utilizing formal methods of
