Summer School on Proof Theory, Ghent, 2-5 Sep 2018

The 1st International Summer School for Proof Theory in Ghent is arranged under the auspices of The Proof Society, and is sponsored by the Kurt Gödel Society. The Proof Society has recently been formed to support the notion of proof in its broadest sense, through a series of suitable activities; to be therefore inclusive in reaching out to all scientific areas which consider proof as an object in their studies; to enable the community to shape its future by identifying, formulating and communicating its most important goals; to actively promote proof to increase its visibility and representation.

The aim of the summer school is to cover basic and advanced topics in proof theory. The focus of the first edition will be on structural proof theory, ordinal analysis, provability logic, automated theorem proving, and philosophical aspects of proof. Other areas like reverse mathematics, proof mining, and proof complexity will be covered at the workshop, and in follow up summer schools. The intended audience is advanced master students, PhD students, postdocs and experienced researchers in mathematics, computer science and philosophy.
