Logics for Unconventional Computing

date: October 18th, 2016
10th EAI International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

Workshop: Logics for Unconventional Computing

Logics for Unconventional Computing is an interdisciplinary workshop which brings together computer scientists and engineers dealing with unconventional computing (such as biological, bio-inspired, chemical, physical, etc. computing) with logicians dealing with non-classical logical, algebraic, co-algebraic, topological, and category-theoretic methods to initiate development of novel bio- and nature-inspired computation paradigms. The workshop aims to exchange ideas, promote fruitful discussions and initiate development on novel paradigms, methodologies and architectures for unconventional computations as well as for applications of computational intelligence in the wide and heterogeneous fields of biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care. It can provide to take a critical glance at the design of novel and emergent computing systems to point out failures and shortcomings of both theoretical and experimental approaches. This workshop is to examine approaches towards a theory of unconventional logic, i.e. a symbolic logic in unconventional computing.
Extended versions of all accepted papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in a special issue of International Journal of Parallel, Emergent and Distributed Systems.

Philosophy and History of Talmudic Logic

date: September 21st, 2016
Affiliated Workshop of Krakow Conference on History of Logic (KHL2016)
27 October 2016, Krakow, Poland
Jagiellonian University, University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow

The purpose of this workshop is to examine the meaning of Talmudic hermeneutics in the contemporary epistemology and logic. One of the main features of Judaism is that Jewish religious laws are not dogmatic but based on specific legal reasoning. This reasoning was developed by the first Judaic commentators of the Bible (Tannaim) for inferring Judaic laws from the Pentateuch. Our workshop is aimed to consider Judaic reasoning from the standpoint of modern philosophy: symbolic logic, rhetoric, analytic philosophy, pragmatics and so on. On the one hand, we are interested in possibilities to import into the Talmudic study modern logical methods. On the other hand, we are interested in possibilities to export from the Talmud new logical principles which are innovative to contemporary logic. Topics
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• History of the Talmudic hermeneutics,

• Symbolic-logical formalizations of some Talmudic passages,

• Medieval Judaic logic,

• Language philosophy of the Talmud,

• Talmudic hermeneutics from the standpoint of contemporary analytic philosophy,

• Epistemology of the Talmud,

• Philosophical presuppositions in the Talmudic exegesis,

• Logics of Judaic reasoning.

We are very pleased to invite scholars and rabbis interested in the philosophy and history of Talmudic hermeneutics. Each of the areas mentioned above may be subject to research and reflection for potential conference participants.

Interdisciplinary Seminar on Cognitive Studies, Behavioral Economics and Behavioral Politics

date: June 16th, 2014
Aim of the Seminar:

The Seminar is a forum for an open discussion on new trends in cognitive sciences and behavioral economics. Its two aims are: first, to encourage dialogue between different disciplinary approaches such as logic, philosophy, psychology, economics, politics, computer science, etc. and, second, to stimulate interchange with those working in these fields to explore and develop new perspectives in this area. The Seminar will contribute to the development of interdisciplinary research and cooperation between logicians, philosophers, psychologists, computer scientists, programmers, etc. in order to promote further new expert systems in behavioral economics and behavioral politics.


The topic of each seminar will be introduced by a panel of experts (they are listed below). The presentation of papers will be followed by a discussion. Authors of best presentations will be asked to submit an appropriate paper for Studia Humana.


The Seminar is addressed to the faculty of University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow and the postgraduate students. Nevertheless, the Seminar is opened to all interested participants.
