Call for Papers:
Practices of Reading and Writing in Logic (Vichy, France, 23-24 June 2018)
(A workshop within UNILOG ’18, The Sixth World Congress and School on 
Universal Logic)

EXTENDED DEADLINE: October 15, 2017

Keynote speakers:
Prof. Dr. Volker Peckhaus (University of Paderborn), Editor-in-Chief of 
History and Philosophy of Logic
Prof. Dr. Dirk Schlimm (McGill University Montreal / LMU Munich)
PD. Dr. Matthias Wille (University of Paderborn)

This workshop aims at an account of logic as construed from logicians’ 
practices of writing and reading. This includes questions in the history 
and philosophy of notation and symbolic reasoning or computation. 
Further interests are activities of commenting or reviewing, and of 
publishing and collecting within the logicians' scientific community.

The proposed approach is motivated by the observations that a great deal 
of the working logician’s job is to write and read. First, to work a 
problem in logic, it is necessary to apply certain rules for 
transformation or deduction. In order to apply these rules correctly, 
you may write down the consecutive steps by symbol inscriptions and 
eventually read off the result. Secondly, communicating logical problems 
requires activities of writing for an audience, and the results to be 
read by others. Moreover, what there is to be read depends not only on 
what has been written, but also on what – and how it – has been read by 

Topics for contributions may include, but are not restricted to the 
following aspects as applied to logic:

Questions of notation

Questions of literary style




Logic journals

Bibliographies and catalogues

Perusal of public or research libraries

Private libraries and collections

Bibliometrical research

Tools for collaborative research in logic

Contributed talks should not exceed 30 minutes including discussion.

To submit a contribution, please send a one-page abstract by the 
EXTENDED DEADLINE, October 15, 2017 to: annasoph at mail.uni-paderborn.de
