The 12th edition of PhDs in Logic will take place in Berlin!

The 11th edition of PhDs in Logic will take place in Bern on April 24-26 2019 at the Institut für Exakte Wissenschaften, University of Bern.

PhDs in Logic is an annual graduate conference organised by local graduate students. This interdisciplinary conference welcomes contributions to various topics in mathematical logic, philosophical logic, and logic in computer science. It usually involves tutorials by established researchers as well as short presentations by PhD students, master students and first-year postdocs on their research. This edition of the conference will involve six tutorials in total, three of which will be delivered by young researchers.

Earlier editions of the event took place in Ghent (2009, 2012), Tilburg (2010), Brussels (2011), Munich (2013), Utrecht (2014), Vienna (2015), Darmstadt (2016), Bochum (2017) and Prague (2018).
