the scandinavian logic society

Our aim at present is to develop this website for the purpose of sharing information on all matters related to logic in the Scandinavian countries. 
We wish the Society to construe the concept of logic as broadly as possible, including the fields computer science, philosophy, mathematics and linguistics.

Under the auspices of FoLLI the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year in a different European country. It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world.

PhD position in theory and applications of dependence logic, Helsinki

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Helsinki invites applications for a three-year doctoral student position (with a possibility of extension if further funding can be obtained later) in a research project on “Logical analysis of no-go theorems in social choice and quantum foundations”. This multidisciplinary project aims to apply the methodology of dependence logic to develop formal connections between no-go theorems in social choice theory (such as Arrow’s Theorem) and in quantum foundations (such as Bell’s Theorem).
