Call For Papers: Australasian Association of Logic Meeting

Dates: 6-7 July 2018

Location: Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand

The annual meeting of the Australasian Association of Logic will be held in Wellington. Guest speakers will include Timothy Williamson. The current president of the AAL is Max Cresswell and he will give this year's presidential address. This year's conference will be held in honour of Rob Goldblatt and Max Cresswell. Both Rob and Max will retire from Victoria soon and so this is a chance to celebrate their outstanding contributions to logic. Papers on modal logic, in particular those on the work of Goldblatt or Cresswell, are especially welcome, but talks on any subject in logic are welcome.

Please submit abstracts of not more than one page to Edwin Mares (Edwin.Mares@vuw.ac.nz<mailto:Edwin.Mares@vuw.ac.nz>) by 31 May 2018.
