 WORKSHOP ON MODAL LOGICS OF SPACE
 May 10, 1999
 ILLC
 University of Amsterdam

 URL: http://www.wins.uva.nl/~aiellom/mls.html

THEME
In various applications there is a need for formal models of space and 
for formal languages for talking about such models. In sharp contrast 
to the related field of reasoning about time, modal logic approaches 
in this research area have been few and far between. However, this 
situation seems to change rapidly since quite recently a number of 
`spatial logics' have been proposed.

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in 
formal representations of space, and particularly, in approaches based 
on modal logic.


PROGRAM
The workshop will consist of the following presentations:

 * Philippe Balbiani, LIPN, France
 Spatial dynamic logic

 * Luis Farinas del Cerro, IRIT, France
 (title to be announced)

 * Volker Haarslev, University of Hamburg, Germany
 Spatial reasoning with the description logic ALCRP(D)

 * Oliver Lemon, University of Dublin, Ireland
 "Beneath the surface" of spatial modal logics

 * Ian Pratt, Manchester University, United Kingdom
 Plane Mereotopology

 * Vera Stebletsova, University of Utrecht, the Netherlands
 (title to be announced)

 * Yde Venema, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
 Points, lines and diamonds

 * Marco Aiello, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
 Topological Bisimulations, first thoughts
