To whom it concerns, I wish to disseminate the call to the George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference this week. The information relating to the conference is below: From Boole?s Algebra of Logic to Boolean Algebra, and Beyond Website: http://booleconferences.ucc.ie/gbmsc2015/theme2 Date: 27 - 28 Aug 2015 *Registration and important dates:* *Registration*: opens April 2 *Submission of Abstracts*: by May 1 *Please send abstracts to:* m.schellekens@cs.ucc.ie *Notification of acceptance*: June 1 *Late registration*: as of June 15 to August 15 The international conference ?From Boole?s Algebra of Logic to Boolean Algebra, and Beyond? will take place during the celebrations of Boole?s bicentenary at University Cork. As an open and interactive event, the conference welcomes talks on topics related to the main theme, Boole?s Algebra of Logic, Boolean Algebra as well as other developments emanating from Boole?s work or presentations pertaining to the history of Boole?s work and related discoveries. Conference publication will be considered pending participant interest. ?From Boole?s Algebra of Logic to Boolean Algebra, and Beyond? will be embedded in the George Boole Mathematical Sciences (GMBS) Conference. Further information on this event is included below. Invited speakers ? Stanley Burris (University of Waterloo) ? Amirouche Moktefi (Tallinn University of Technology) ?

Michel Schellekens (UCC) George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference As part of the celebrations of Boole?s bicentenary, the George Boole Mathematical Sciences (GBMS) Conference will be held in University College Cork (UCC) during the last two weeks of August 2015. George Boole (1815 ? 1864) was the first professor of mathematics at Cork. Boole?s efforts to mathematize logical thinking caused a lasting paradigm shift in the 19th century which enlarged the scope and potency of modern mathematics, and provided a wealth of ideas for applications in diverse scientific areas resulting in ground-breaking innovations during the 20th century and beyond. ?From Boole?s Algebra of Logic to Boolean Algebra, and Beyond? will form theme 2 of the George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference, Cork, Ireland Information on the GBMS conference program is available at: http://booleconferences.ucc.ie/gbmsc2015 This event will include 100 ? 150 lectures on selected areas: ?
