The 2nd International Interdisciplinary Conference.

Philosophical Basis for Making Decisions and Non-Classical Logics

On the 140th anniversary of the birth of Professor Jan Łukasiewicz

date: October 7th, 2018
1 February 2019
Rzeszów, Poland

This conference is organized on the 140th anniversary of the birth of Professor Jan Łukasiewicz (born on December, 21st 1878 in Lviv (Polish: Lwów), a city in today’s Ukraine, and died on February, 13th 1956), who was a famous representative of Lviv-Warsaw School of Logic with contributions to philosophical logic, mathematical logic, and history of logic.Using some philosophical ideas of Aristotle's De Interpretatione (ch.IX) (namely, his asserting that the application of the law of excluded middle to future propositions like, ‘There will be a sea-battle tomorrow’ should be categorically restricted), Jan Łukasiewicz proposed the first version of many-valued logic (1920). So, he showed that even some features of real world which are out of classical logic such as dynamics can be described and modeled logically still by non-classical systems. This finding that logic and rationality can be detectedeven in non-logical processes is quite typical for the Lviv-Warsaw School of Logic and distinguishes this school from the Vienna Circle (German: Wiener Kreis) focusing only on classical logic and their natural extensions. Hence, the motto of our conference is that rationality can be observed everywhere.Over the past two decades our social world has changed a lot due to new media. One of the biggest changes is communications in social networks which became an important part of our everyday’s life.But new forms of social communication are out of traditional forms of logical analysis of discourse. For instance, in these media the standard referential conception of truth is inapplicable – we cannot check uttered facts, but we can check contexts of uttering. In this way, we are interested to discuss non-classical logics in decision making and cognitions, new forms of communication and decision making, communication in new media. Extended versions of all accepted abstracts will be considered for publication in a special issue of Studia Humana.

Międzynarodowa Konferencja Interdyscyplinarna.
Idee i społeczeństwo – filozoficzne podstawy podejmowania decyzji
W 150 rocznicę urodzin profesora Leona Petrażyckiego

date: May 13th, 2017
Konferencja z okazji 150 rocznicy urodzin prof. Leona Petrażyckiego (ur. 13 kwietnia 1867 roku w Kołłątajewie, współczesna Białoruś, zm. 15 maja 1931 roku w Warszawie, Polska), który był polskim prawnikiem, filozofem, socjologiem prawa, etykiem i logikiem. Petrażycki prezentował naturalistyczne podejście do różnych problemów o charakterze kognitywistycznym, które powstają równocześnie w prawie, filozofii i etyce. Można powiedzieć, że został pierwszym polskim kognitywistą.

W ramach konferencji chcemy poruszyć podstawowe kwestie związane z filozofią i teorią prawa, filozofią i metodologią nauk oraz z decyzjami i procesami poznawczymi. A więc Co funduje teorię prawa? Czy teoria prawa jest autonomiczna? A może jej podstawą powinna być jednak filozofia? Jakie są współczesne wyzwania filozofii i teorii prawa? Z jakimi problemami boryka się współczesna metodologia nauk? Czy można zbudować model podejmowania decyzji ufundowany na wcześniejszej eksplikacji procesów poznawczych.

The 2nd World Congress on Logic and Religion

date: May 13th, 2017
This congress will be held at the University of Warsaw (Poland) on June 18-22, 2017, the institutional organiser being the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw (Instytut Filozofii, Uniwersytet Warszawski).

The 1st World Congress on Logic and Religion was organized jointly by the Federal University of Campina Grande, the Federal University of Paraiba and the University of Brazil in João Pessoa, and held on April 1-5, 2015. It was devoted to a wide range of problems concerning the relations between logic and religion. At the conclusion of the congress, many participants expressed the wish to continue discussions on these topics in the future and also warmly welcomed the idea to organize such an event in Poland, which can be called a country of logic and religion thanks to both the tradition of Lvov-Warsaw School of logic and a considerable level of religiosity.

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.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Computational biology
Biological computation
Slime mould computing
Social insects computing
Bio-molecular computing
Unconventional computing
Logics of unconventional computing
Translational bioinformatics
Novel bio-medical hardware systems
Computational intelligence methods in biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care
Knowledge management and analysis of medical data

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.
