Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees (LATD) 2018

28 – 31 August, Bern, Switzerland

First Announcement and Call for Papers

The sixth edition of the conference “Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees”
(LATD) will take place 28-31 August 2018 in Bern, Switzerland.


LATD 2018 will be co-located with the twelfth edition of the conference
Advances in Modal Logic (AiML 2018) http://www.latd2018.unibe.ch/.

Mathematical Fuzzy Logic is the sub-discipline of Mathematical Logic
that is concerned with the notion of comparative truth. The assumption
that “truth comes in degrees” has proved to be very useful in many
theoretical and applied areas of Mathematics, Computer Science, and
Philosophy. The LATD conference series started as an official meeting
of the working group on Mathematical Fuzzy Logic and has evolved
into a wider meeting in algebraic logic and related areas. Its main goal
is to foster collaboration between researchers in these areas, and to
promote communication and cooperation with members of
neighbouring fields.

We invite contributions on any relevant aspects of logical systems
(including many-valued, fuzzy, substructural, modal and quantum
logics), in particular:

– Proof theory and computational complexity
– Algebraic semantics and abstract algebraic logic
– First-order, higher-order and modal formalisms
– Applications and foundational issues
– Geometric and game theoretic aspects
