Message 2: LLC6 Workshop Announcement

Date: Wed, 21 May 1997 14:10:31 -0700 (PDT)
From: Martina Faller <fallercsli.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: LLC6 Workshop Announcement

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dates: May 30-June 1 1997
Location: Cordura Hall Conference Room, Stanford University

This workshop brings together scholars having an interest in
logic - philosophers, linguists and computer scientists - with the
overall aim of facilitating interdisciplinary interaction.

It is organized by Johan van Benthem, Henriette de Swart
Grigori Mints, Rob van Glabbeek, and Martina Faller.

This year's program reflects the usual lively mix of topics and
interests that CSLI was designed to bring together. It includes
recent developments in dynamic processing of linguistic and
non-linguistic information, as well as key techniques from
mathematical logic that underlie both formal proof and computation.
The mix also includes contributions by established researchers and by
newcomers to the field, in line with a long-standing tradition.
Finally, some contributions this year reflect the growing interactions
with a broader world, witness talks on logic teaching, as well as
presentations by representatives of industry and high performance
computing. We hope to broaden our 'circle of debate'.
