Workshop on Logics of Dependence and Independence

Utrecht, The Netherlands, August 10-14, 2020

This is a workshop on "Logics of Dependence and Independence" consisting of a 5-day programme of invited and contributed talks. Logics of dependence and independence are novel non-classical logics aiming at characterizing dependence and independence notions in sciences. This field of research has grown rapidly in recent years. The framework of the logics has found applications also in fields like database theory, linguistics, social choice, quantum physics and so on. This workshop will bring together researchers from all these relevant areas and provide a snapshot of the state of the art of logics of dependence and independence.

This workshop is organized as part of the 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2020)
(NOTE: ESSLLI 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus situation.)
