Workshop at the Fifth World Conference on Universal Logic  
25-30 June 2015  
University of Istanbul

In this workshop we want to approach the relation between logic and 
information from the perspective of the philosophy of information, as well as 
from a logical perspective, and draw attention to a number of questions that 
have historically received attention, or have only been individuated in recent 
years. These include the possibility of a genuine informational conception of 
logical consequence, the relation between informational and computational 
approaches, the relation between information and logics of questions, and the 
difference between (what van Benthem calls) implicit informational stances in 
logic like that of intuitionist logic and explicit stances like that of 
epistemic logic.

Keynote speaker
Luciano Floridi (OII, Oxford University)
