Pisa Summer Workshop in Proof Theory
Pisa, Italy
12-15 June 2012
Organizers: Department of Philosophy, University of Pisa
Department of Philosophy, University of Helsinki
Open call for papers
***************************************************************
Aimed at understanding the structure of mathematical proofs, proof theory
has undergone different phases: it has been reductive, general,
structural. Especially thanks to sequent calculus formalizations, deep
results were attained as far as proofs in pure logic and arithmetic are
concerned. Through significant connections with computer science, proof
theory contributed to the birth of new areas of research outside
traditional mathematics, such as the verification of correctness of
computer programs. Natural deduction has led to the Curry-Howard
correspondence and to connections with functional programming, and sequent
calculus is often used in systems of automatic proof search, as in logic
programming. Rooted in general proof theory, a proof-theoretic semantics
has been recently developed as an alternative to standard denotational
truth-condition semantics. The workshop will focus mainly on proof
systems, but we aim at touching several areas of proof-theoretical
research.
The workshop will be framed in two six-hour tutorials, six one-hour
lectures, and is open to half-hour contributed talks. People interested to
present a paper in the workshop may send a title with a short abstract to
one of the following e-mail addresses:
