******************************************************************* SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS Second International Congress on Tools for Teaching Logic 26-30 September 2006, Salamanca (Spain) ******************************************************************* Submission of Papers: May 15, 2006 Notification of Acceptance: June 15, 2006 Final Camera-Ready Submission Due: July 3, 2006 Web: http://logicae.usal.es/SICTTL AIMS AND SCOPE: Most of us share the feeling that the teaching of an interdisciplinary field spanning logic, linguistics and computer science should be available in such a way that will facilitate further interdisciplinary research. Nevertheless, we are aware that the needs are different in those fields of study which have already been stablished. The overall concern is in the teaching of logic, but with special regard in addressing innovations and the systematization of educational activity. We believe that the role of logic in the shaping of the epistemology of this XXI creature should be crucial; Information technology is rapidly changing the world we live in, and logic is helping us to produce, distribute and process information, as well as to understand how coded information can modify people's state of knowlege. At the University of Salamanca the First International Congress on Tools for Teaching Logic took place in June 2000. A number of logicians from different countries in Europe, the US and South America gathered there to focus on education on the interfaces between philosophy, linguistics, mathematics, computer science and related disciplines. The organizing committee invites you to take part in the Second International Congress on Tools for Teaching Logic, which will be held in Salamanca on September 26-30, 2006. There will be lectures, discussion sessions, round tables and software demonstrations. You are kindly invited to take active part in these sessions and to exhibit your teaching or professional software. We invite submission of papers on all aspects of teaching logics, including the following main topics: 1. Issues, Means and Objectives in Teaching Logic. 2. Teaching the Role of Logic in Science and Humanities. 3. Teaching Logic Research in a Postgraduate Programme. 4. Software for Teaching Logic and Reasoning. 5. e-Learning Logic: Resources and Challenges. PROGRAM: We have already arrange the following plenary sessions: Johan van Benthem: What Should Every Student Know About Logic? Rethinking the Core Curriculum. University of Amsterdam. Holland Wilfrid Hodges. Mathematical Writing. Quen Mary College. U.K. Patrick Blackburn. Representation and Inference for Natural Language. INRIA Lorraine. France.
