Modern logic (starting with George Boole at the mid of the XIX
century) changed the world: it led to new understanding of reasoning,
language, mathematics. It gave new directions in philosophy and gave
birth to computation. After 150 years we may wonder what is the future
of so successful a science, nowadays much of the time in the shadow of
its multifaceted offsprings This contest wants to promote a reflexion
on what can be the future of logic considering its 150-years history.
Here are a few questions:

1) Will or can logic give a better understanding to sciences / fields
such as physics, biology, economics, music, information?

2) How will evolve the internal life of logic, its objectives and tools?

3) How will develop the interactions between logic and philosophy,
logic and mathematics, logic and computation?

To take part to the contest submit a paper of 10 to 15 pages by March
1st, 2015 to:

unilog.contest2015@gmail.com

The best papers will be selected for presentation in a special session
during the event and a jury will decide during the event who are the
winners: gold, silver and bronze medals.

Members of the Jury are Patrick Blackburn, Walter Carnielli
(president) and John Corcoran. The prize is offered by Birkhäuser
Science  Basel, Switzerland.
