Logic and Philosophy of Time: Themes from Prior

As part of a three year project The Primacy of Tense: A.N. Prior Now and Then, funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research (FKK) a three day workshop called Logic and Philosophy of Time: Themes from Prior will be held in Copenhagen 22 – 24 November 2017.

Call for papers

We invite submissions on the logic and philosophy of time, linked to themes drawn from the work of Arthur Prior. Both philosophical and formal papers are welcome, as are papers on the history of tense and temporal logic. Examples of relevant themes include (but are certainly not restricted to):

  • A and B series accounts of time
  • Branching time
  • Time and modality
  • Tense logic
  • Metric logic
  • Hybrid logic
  • Events and temporality
  • Presentism and its rivals
  • Dynamic models of time
  • The arrow of time
  • First-order temporal logic
  • Temporal metaphysics

Keynote speakers are:

  • Thomas Müller (University of Konstanz)
  • Valentin Goranko (University of Stockholm)
  • Nathan L. Oaklander (University of Michigan-Flint)

All papers accepted for the conference will be published in a new bookseries published by Aalborg University Press. We also anticipate that extended versions of some papers will also appear in a special journal issue after a second round of refereeing. Papers should be submitted in the format used by Springer in the LNAI series (LNAI home page - click here) (instructions for LNAI authors - click here) and should not exceed 10 pages in length (including references).

Deadline for submission: October 1, 2017 - Notification of acceptance: October 15, 2017

We also invite extended abstracts (not more than 2 pages) that will form the basis for talks at this conference.
