             ++ Tutorials about Proofs ++
            July 18, 2014, Vienna, Austria

              --- call for participation ---


Register now at http://vsl2014.at/registration/, selecting "APPA" on workshop block 2. 
Early-registered participants will receive a book with the invited papers. 
Early registration goes until 8th of June.


Many of us, logicians, devote our work to the improvement of proofs, proof systems, proof formats, interactive proof script languages, proof search methods... But what makes a proof (system|format|search-method|...) better than another? Logicians from different communities will give radically different answers to this question! The principles behind their answers may be unknown to outsiders; they may even sound obscure, ungrounded or in apparent contradiction to the principles of other communities.

The Vienna Summer of Logic presents a unique opportunity to promote a conversation between all communities on questions related to proofs. ∀X.XΠ will promote a fruitful knowledge exchange by organizing short tutorials given by prominent speakers from various communities. These tutorials shall be accessible to young researchers and of interest to experienced researchers from other communities as well.
