Call for participation and submission of abstracts
LL2016 - Linear Logic: interaction, proofs and computation
Autumn school and workshops
Lyon, France, November 7-10, 2016
https://ll2016.sciencesconf.org/
=====================================================================
Linear Logic 2016 will be a four-day meeting in Lyon, including three
events:
- Autumn school on linear logic (Nov 7-8)
- Workshop 'Linear logic and philosophy' (Nov 8, afternoon)
- Workshop 'Linear logic, mathematics and computer science' (Nov 9-10)
The present announcement is a call for submission of abstracts to the
workshop 'Linear logic, mathematics and computer science' (Nov 9-10)
and a call for participation for all three events (see below).

IMPORTANT DATES
* Registration deadline: Oct 15, 2016
---------------------------------------------------------------------
* CONTEXT
Linear logic was introduced 30 years ago and has rapidly become a
pivot point between mathematical logic and computer science. This
field has diversified into various chapters: proof-nets, categorical
semantics, geometry of interaction, game semantics, etc. These chapters
have provided many tools and concepts useful in computer science to
analyse, understand, control and generalise computational dynamics.
The contribution of linear logic to the logical foundations of
computer science has also influenced other fields, e.g. computational
linguistics and quantum computing, and it has inspired philosophical
investigations around the computational approach to logic. For these
reasons the present event aims to gather mathematicians, computer
scientists and philosophers in order to foster interaction in research
on linear logic.
The following three events are organised. Registration instructions
for all events are below.
* AUTUMN SCHOOL ON LINEAR LOGIC (Nov 7-8)
This school is mainly directed towards Master's students with a
background in logic and philosophy, computer science or
mathematics. It is also open to PhD students and researchers who would
like to learn about linear logic.
The goal is to give a structured introduction to the main concepts
and results in linear logic. It will assume as prerequisites only a
basic knowledge of classical logic and of formal proof systems
(sequent calculus or natural deduction). The aim is to allow the
participants to understand, in particular, the motivations and origins
of linear logic, its logical connectives, sequent calculus,
proof-nets, semantics, relationships with intuitionistic and classical
logic, etc.
LECTURERS
- Jean-Baptiste Joinet
- Olivier Laurent
- Damiano Mazza
- Lionel Vaux
The lectures will be given in English. More detailed information
about the programme and the lecturers will be available on the web
site: https://ll2016.sciencesconf.org/page/school/
* WORKSHOP 'Linear logic and philosophy' (Nov 8, afternoon)
This meeting will consist of invited talks only. It will address
some of the philosophical issues raised by linear logic such as the
computational foundations of logic, the problem of proof
representation, and the interface between logic and physics.
INVITED SPEAKERS
- Jean-Baptiste Joinet (Lyon - France)
- Jean-Yves Girard (Marseille - France)
- Mitsu Okada (Tokyo - Japan)
- Mattia Petrolo (Paris - France)
- Paolo Pistone (Marseille - France)
* WORKSHOP 'Linear logic, mathematics and computer science' (Nov 9-10)
This workshop will consist of invited talks and contributed
ones. For contributed talks, authors are invited to submit an abstract
following the instructions below. Submissions on all topics related to
linear logic in its relations with mathematics and computer science
are welcome, for instance, but not exclusively:
- proof-nets
- denotational and categorical semantics
- geometry of interaction, game semantics
- linear type systems
- implicit computational complexity
INVITED SPEAKERS
- Willem Heijltjes (Bath - UK)
- Dale Miller (Saclay - France)
- Michele Pagani (Paris - France)
- Elaine Pimentel (Natal - Brazil)
- Kazushige Terui (Kyoto - Japan)
* VENUE
- The school (Nov 7-8) will take place at Universite Lyon 3.
- The workshop 'Linear logic and philosophy' (Nov 8, afternoon) will
take place at Universite Lyon 3.
- The workshop 'Linear logic, mathematics and computer science' (Nov
9-10) will take place at ENS Lyon.
