XVIII Brazilian Logic Conference

XVIII Brazilian Logic Conference

May 8-12, 2017 – Pirenópolis / GO, Brazil

The Brazilian Logic Meeting (EBL) is a traditional event of the Brazilian Logic Society (SBL). They have been occurring since 1979. It congregates logicians of different fields and the meeting is an important moment for the Brazilian and South-American community to join together and engage in a discussion about the state-of-art of their subject. The areas of Logic covered spread over Foundations and Philosophy of Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, Informatics, Linguistics, and Artificial Intelligence.

Previous editions of the EBL have attracted researchers from all over Latin America and elsewhere. The EBL is an event bringing together logicians of different levels and skills: from undergraduated students to senior researchers.

In 2017, the EBL will be held at the Pirenópolis, Goías, a small charming colonial town at about 100km from Brasília. This is the first time the event will be held in the Middle West (Centro-Oeste) of Brazil.

The goal of the EBL meeting is to encourage the dissemination and discussion of research papers in Logic in a broad sense. It is expected to have among the partcipants several invited speakers from different continents.
