The Tenth Scandinavian Logic Symposium (SLS 2018)

The Tenth Scandinavian Logic Symposium (SLS 2018) will be held at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden during June 11-13, 2018, under the auspices of the Scandinavian Logic Society. The previous two meetings of the SLS were held in Tampere, Finland (2014) and Roskilde, Denmark (2012).

The primary aim of the Symposium is to promote research in the field of logic (broadly conceived) carried out in research communities in Scandinavia. Moreover, it warmly invites participation of logicians from all over the world. The meeting will include invited lectures and a forum for participants to present contributed talks.

The scope of this event covers mathematical, computational, and philosophical logic. The major topics include (but are not limited to) the areas of Proof Theory, Constructivism, Model Theory, Set Theory, Computability Theory, Algebra and Logic, Categorical Logic, Logic and Computer Science, Logic and Linguistics, Logic in AI and Multi-Agent Systems, Logics of Games, Modal and other non-classical Logics, Axiomatic Theories of Truth, and Philosophical Logic.

We are proud to announce that the 2018 Lindström Lectures will be a part of SLS 2018 and delivered by Michael Rathjen. For more information see Lindström lectures webpage

SLS 2018 is collocated with the Workshop on Dialogue and Perception 2018, June 14-15, 2018.
