Workshop on Compositional Meaning in Logic [GeTFun 4.0]
http://sqig.math.ist.utl.pt/GeTFun/4.0 Affiliated with 8th International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning http://www.uc.pt/en/congressos/ijcar2016 Coimbra, Portugal July 12, 2016 Submission deadline: April 15, 2016 The Fregeaninspired Principle of Compositionality of Meaning (PoC), for formal languages, may be construed as asserting that the meaning of a compound expression is deterministically (and often recursively) analysable in terms of the meaning of its constituents, taking into account the mode in which these constituents are combined so as to form the compound expression. From a logical point of view, this amounts to prescribing a constraint  that may or may not be respected  on the internal mechanisms that build and give meaning to a given formal system. Within the domain of formal semantics and of the structure of logical derivations, PoC is often directly reflected by metaproperties such as truthfunctionality and analyticity, characteristic of computationally wellbehaved logical systems. After the success of its first, second and third editions, the workshop GeTFun 4.0 is dedicated to the study of various wellmotivated ways in which the attractive properties and metaproperties of truthfunctional logics may be stretched so as to cover more extensive logical grounds. The ubiquity of nonclassical logics in the formalization of practical reasoning demands the formulation of more flexible theories of meaning and compositionality that allow for the establishment of coherent and inclusive bases for their understanding. Such investigations presuppose not only the development of adequate frameworks from the perspectives of Model Theory, Proof Theory and Universal Logic, but also the construction of solid bridges between the related approaches based on various generalizations of truthfunctionality. Applications of broadly truthfunctional logics, in their various guises, are envisaged in several areas of computer science, mathematics, philosophy and linguistics, where the ever increasing complexity of systems continuously raise new and difficult challenges to compositionality. We welcome submissions on all topics related to compositionality of meaning in logic, and in particular to issues connected to generalizations of metalogical notions such as:  truthfunctionality  nondeterminism in semantics  logical bivalence vs algebraic manyvaluedness  analyticity  subformula principle and complexity measures  semantic effectiveness and decision procedures for nonclassical logics  cutfree vs cutbased proof formalisms  proof strategies and proofsearch  modular logical specification formalisms  rule invertibility, structurality and logical harmony Submissions, consisting of an abstract of up to 1,000 words, should be sent by email before April 15, 2016 to the Gmail account: getfunw. At least one author of each accepted contribution is expected to participate in the workshop and present the work. Each contributed talk is planned to have the duration of 25 minutes, divided into 20 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes of discussion. The charge for participation is 50€/day, a fee covering the welcome kit, coffee breaks and lunch.
