Call for contributed talks

Hypothetical reasoning or reasoning under assumptions is a key concept
of logic, philosophy of science and mathematics. This conference
focusses on its logical aspects, such as

- assumption-based calculi and their proof theory
- logical consequence from a proof-theoretic or model-theoretic point of
- logics of conditionals
- proof systems
- structure of assumption-based proofs
- hypotheses in proof-theoretic semantics
- notions of implication
- substructural logics
- hypotheses in categorial logic
- logical aspects of scientific explanation
- hypothetical reasoning in mathematics
- reasoning from definitions and axioms

We invite contributed talks on any of these topics. Contributions on
related topics are welcome, too. We especially encourage young
researchers, including students, to contribute. There will be 12 slots
for contributed talks (30 min) and 5 slots for shorter presentations.
