Abstract:
			
The last twenty years have witnessed extensive collaborative research
between computer scientists, logicians, linguists, philosophers, and
psychologists. These interdisciplinary studies stem from the
realization that researchers drawn from all fields are studying the
same problem. Specifically, a common concern amongst researchers
today is how logic sheds light on the nature of information. Ancient
questions concerning how humans communicate, reason and decide, and
modern questions about how computers should communicate, reason and
decide are of prime interest to researchers in various disciplines.

"Words, Proofs and Diagrams" is a collection of papers covering active
research areas at the interface of logic, computer science, and
linguistics. Readers of the volume will find traditional research on
process logics, issues in formal semantics, and language processing.
In addition, the volume also highlights a particularly new area where
all three disciplines meet---the study of images and graphics as
information carriers and the diagrammatic reasoning supported by them.

The volume is divided into three parts: Diagrammatic Reasoning,
Computation, and Logic and Language. Each of these parts is headed by
an editorial introduction that maps out the relation of the papers to
each other and to the wider field. While each chapter provides an
angle on the logic of information, it is their interconnections that
provide the total picture of the field today.
