Frontiers of Non-Classicality: Logic, Mathematics, Philosophy

Auckland, New Zealand, 2016
January 26: tutorials
January 27, 28, 29: talks

In the 21st century, there are many logics. Many of them have already or are becoming independently viable frameworks, with mathematical and philosophical ideas that go beyond the ambit of classicality. The aim of this conference is to bring together the state-of-the-art in non-classical programs, to clarify their conceptual and technical base, and to look to the future -- to set the agenda for the next phases of research. Topics may include:

  *    Advances in non-classical mathematics (set theory, arithmetic, analysis, topology, algebra, geometry...)
  *    Advances in non-classical philosophy (paradoxes, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics...)
  *    Automated theorem proving for non-classical theories
  *    Methodology (e.g. non-classical meta-theory); logical pluralism, monism, relativism...
  *    Different approaches (fuzzy, paraconsistent, constructive, linear, reverse mathematics...)
  *    Advances in non-classical logic (proof theory, semantics, substructural logic...)

A published volume of papers is anticipated. Some funding may be available to help contributing speakers attend. Contributions from under-represented groups is highly encouraged.

At a time when work is ever more interdisciplinary, collaborative, and open minded, we hope this meeting helps the next century in logic be even more fruitful than the last.

Confirmed speakers so far (in alphabetical order):

  *   Douglas Bridges (Canterbury)
  *   Petr Cintula (Czech Academy of Sciences)
  *   Edwin Mares (Victoria)
  *   Graham Priest (CUNY)
  *   Greg Restall (Melbourne)
  *   Helmut Schwichtenberg (Munich)
  *   Kazushige Terui (Kyoto)
