Invited Speakers

Submissions

We anticipate that our BLC programme will include contributed talks on a range of topics including proof theory, set theory, model theory, computability and complexity, logical aspects of computer science, in particular type theory and program verification, and philosophy of mathematics. We especially encourage students and early-career researchers to present their work.

Submissions of abstracts for talks are handled via EasyChair. Please submit your one page abstract (as pdf document) at

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=blc2017

Deadline is July 27th.  In general we will handle submissions rather informally.
