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.
Proposals of new topics on TOOLS FOR TEACHING LOGIC are welcome. The deadline for
submissions is May the 30th.
Even if you are not taking such an active part you must register before July the
In addition to the workshop proceedings, we plan to publish a special issue in the
IGPL Journal. Shortly after the congress, authors will be contacted by the editors
for special issue, inviting them to send a longer contribution. Details on the publication
schedule for the special issue as well as formatting instructions will be announced
at the congress.
