Table of Contents

Photos of the event by Dada Baudelaire can be found here. :-)

The annual workshop Logic in Bochum gathers logicians from different domains for a two days workshop at Ruhr University Bochum. This year it will take place on the 5th and 6th of May. The workshop traditionally consists of two parts: the first part (day 1), devoted to a specific area of logic and the second part (day 2) devoted to a variety of topics. We invite submissions of abstracts for the first part of the workshop, which this year focuses on deontic logics.

Submission Deadline


  • Joao Marcos, Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Natal, Brazil
  • Gabriella Pigozzi, University Paris Dauphine, France
  • Niko Strobach, Münster University, Germany
  • Allard Tamminga, University Utrecht and University of Groningen

Venue and how to get there

From Bochum Hauptbahnhof (central station) take the U35 towards Bochum Querenburg (Hustadt) and get out at stop “Ruhr Universität”. (Ticket needed: Preisstufe A, €2,70). On weekdays the subway U35 leaves every 5 minutes and reaches the university within 9 minutes.

Getting from the U-Bahn stop “Ruhr Universität” to Beckmanns Hof

The workshop will take place at Beckmanns Hof, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. Beckmanns Hof is located on Campus behind the Mensa. A map of the campus can be found here: campus map.

From the train station of the U35 (“Ruhr-Universität”) go up the pedestrian bridge, turn right from the exit and walk towards the university. Your route takes you directly to the building of the university library. Keep walking till you pass the University library on your right, and continue until you reach the University “Mensa” building. Pass by the “Mensa” by walking down stairs, cross a campus street and a parking lot, and further walk down to the Beckmanns Hof.


The book of abstracts can be found here.
