FORMALS 2021: Formal Reasoning and Semantics
20-24 Sep 2021
Dubrovnik, Croatia *AND* virtual
Submission deadline: 10 June 2021
The 4th workshop Formal Reasoning and Semantics will be held at the Inter-University Center Dubrovnik (IUC), as a part of the 10th conference Logic and Applications (LAP 2021) 20-24 September 2021. Virtual participation is also possible. The workshop is organized within the research project Formal Reasoning and Semantics (FORMALS) supported by Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ), UIP-2017-05-9219.
We have several 30 min slots available for contributed talks. All contributions which broadly fit the main goal of the project – mutual enrichment of pure and applied logic – are welcome, including, but not limited to, specific project topics listed below.
The emphasis of the project is on applications of logic in computer science, and vice versa, the application of computational tools in logical and mathematical research. Another goal is to apply logic to specific problems of linguistics or, more generally, cognitive and information
sciences, as well as interdisciplinary areas in which economics and mathematics overlap (game theory, social choice theory).
The theoretical aspects of the project include:
1) exploring the expressive power of formal languages by methods of model theory
2) soundness and completeness, decidability and complexity of formal systems, in particular modal logics
3) exploring the possibilities of developing an abstract theory of formal semantics.
Application aspects are:
1) development, research and formalization of mathematical models for problems of other disciplines
2) development and implementation of algorithms
3) detection of links between seemingly unrelated domains through related formalizations.
Participants need to be registered for the main conference LAP 2021. Registration fee is 50 EUR and covers both the main conference and the workshop. Virtual participation fee is 40 EUR.
Authors should submit an abstract in LaTeX format, not exceeding three pages, to tin.perkov[at]ufzg.hr with the subject FORMALS 2021.
