Logic, Relativity and Beyond
3rd international conference

2017 August 23-27 Budapest, Hungary


Deadline for abstract or paper submission: 26 February 2017
Notifying the authors: 31 March, 2017
Early registration: 15 April, 2017
Conference: 23-27 August, 2017

There are several new and rapidly evolving research areas blossoming out from the interaction of logic and relativity theory. The aim of this conference series, which take place once every 2 or 3 years, is to attract and bring together mathematicians, physicists, philosophers of science, and logicians from all over the word interested in these and related areas to exchange new ideas, problems and results.

The spirit of this conference series goes back to the Vienna Circle and Tarski's initiative Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science. We aim to provide a friendly atmosphere that enables fruitful cooperation leading to joint research and publications. This 3rd conference is also dedicated to honoring Hajnal Andréka's 70th birthday.

Topics include (but are not restricted to):

*  Special and general relativity
*  Axiomatizing physical theories
*  Foundations of spacetime
*  Computability and physics
*  Relativistic computation
*  Cosmology
*  Relativity theory and philosophy of science
*  Knowledge acquisition in science
*  Temporal and spatial logic
*  Branching spacetime
*  Equivalence, reduction and emergence of theories
*  Definability theory
*  Concept algebras and algebraic logic
*  Cylindric and relation algebras
