Conf: Logic and Information

From: Patrick Allo <patrick.allo@vub.ac.be>
Subject: 2nd CFP: Workshop on Logic and Information (Istanbul, 25-30 Jun, 2015)

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

Description
The juxtaposition of ‘logic’ and ‘information’ is popular as well as controversial: It is clear that there must be a connection between both, but there is hardly any agreement about the precise nature of the connection. When we focus on how information can clarify what logic is about, it is natural to say that valid arguments are just those arguments where the content of the conclusion does not exceed the combined content of the premises. Yet, such explanations do not have the same status as more entrenched truth-conditional and inferential conceptions of logical consequence, which suggests that information-talk about logic is simply redundant. When, by contrast, we focus on how logic can clarify the nature and dynamics of information, we turn our attention to specific developments in philosophical logic, like logics of knowledge and belief and their many dynamic extensions. While this opens up an entirely new field of formal investigations — often dubbed the dynamic and interactive turn in logic — it is less clear whether such developments establish a special connection between logic and information (after all, there are plenty of logics of X whose existence and usefulness does not imply a special connection between logic and what it is used for).

At least since Carnap and Bar-Hillel’s theory of semantic information, many closer connections between logic and information have been developed by, amongst others, Barwise & Perry, Corcoran, and Hintikka. More recently, the simultaneous rise of the philosophy of information and the dynamic and interactive turn in logic has led to a revival of the question of how information and logic can be related. In this workshop we want to approach the subject 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 received more 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.

Nomination: Cushing Memorial Prize

2015 Cushing Memorial Prize—Call for Nominations

The family, students, friends, and colleagues of Jim Cushing are pleased once again to solicit nominations for the James T. Cushing Prize in the History and Philosophy of Physics.

In recognition of Jim’s well-known role as a nurturer of new talent in the profession, this annual prize is intended to recognize and reward the work of younger scholars. The next winner will receive $2,000 and an invitation to deliver a paper in the University of Notre Dame’s History and Philosophy of Science Colloquium series during the 2015-2016 academic year.

Work is eligible by nomination only. Eligible are all papers in the history and philosophy of physics published by a younger scholar within the three years prior to the current call for nominations (i.e., published no earlier than October 2011). Without defining “younger scholar,” our intention is to favor work produced by scholars who are no more than five years or so beyond completion of the Ph.D. or, in a comparable way, new to the fields of the history and philosophy of physics.

Nominated work will be evaluated by a committee drawn from the members of the Advisory Committee. A nomination should consist of a brief description of the significance of the nominated work and such information about the author as the nominator might think helpful to the evaluation committee (e.g., an abbreviated c.v.).  The deadline for receipt of nominations is 1 March 2015.  The winner will be announced in May 2015.

Nominations will be accepted by mail, fax, and email.
