PhD School on modal logics, previous to m4m


The PhD school on Modal Logics will be held on 9 November, the day before the start of Methods for Modalities “M4M”. Note that the venue of this PhD school is in Málaga, not in the same venue of M4M will be held. The distance between both places is roughly one hour by train.

The PhD School on Modal Logic is open to anyone interested. The intended participants will have a general background in theoretical computer science, but wish to obtain more concrete knowledge on modal logic and its computational aspects. Besides a working knowledge of English, prerequisites are a basic knowledge of logic and mathematics that is usually covered in undergraduate classes on discrete mathematics.

The main M4M workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in developing proof tools and decision methods based on modal logics (conceived broadly, including description logic, guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc).

See Methods for Modalities for more information on the workshop series, in particular, see why modal logic is important for computer science.
