The 5th World Congress and School on Universal Logic is going to be held at Istanbul University, between July 20-30, 2015. First five days are designed to be a logic school, and the congress will take place in the next five days. For details you can see www.uni-log.org.

Since 2005 UNILOG has been a major event in logic, dealing with all aspects of logic and gathering researchers from all over the world such as Michael Dunn, Hartry Field, Jaakko Hintikka, Wilfrid Hodges, Saul Kripke, Dov Gabbay, Yuri Gurevich, Roberto Casati, David Makinson, Jan Wolenski, Stephen Read, Krister Segerberg, Gerhard Jäger, etc.

In UNILOG’2015 there will be a school with about 30 tutorials followed by a congress with many workshops and invited speakers.
As in previous editions there will also be a contest (The Future of Logic)
and a secret speaker (a speaker whose identity is revealed only at the time of her/his/its talk).

The tutorials of UNILOG’2015 will provide a serious background for a general knowledge of the logical world
They are divided into three categories:
1) History of Logic: the logic of Aristotle, Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Boole, Husserl, Frege, etc.
2) Logic and XXX: Logic and Music, Logic an Colours, Logic and Nonsense, Logic and Information, Logic and the Theory of Relativity, Logic and Fiction, etc
3) Theorems: Compactness theorem, Completeness theorem, Lindström theorem, Gödel’s incompleteness theorem, etc

During the congress there will be an amazing variety of workshops
– Philosophy of non-classical logics
– Representation and reality: humans, animals and machines
– Computational Creativity, Concept Invention and General Intelligence – C3GI
– Connexive Logics
– Logic and the Web
etc.

And as in previous editions there will be a book exhibition with the main publishers:
Springer, Cambridge, Oxford, etc
Will be launched in particular the book “The Life and Work of Leon Henkin”
