Target group: PhD students in logic (and related areas) in the Netherlands (if places are available, the event is also open to master's students). If you do not fall under this target group but you are interested in attending, feel free to send us an e-mail at

Aim/objective: The goal of this event is to foster a community of PhD students in the Netherlands in all areas of logic, which will manifest itself not only at individual institutions, but in the Netherlands as a whole. This will encourage collaborations and exchange of ideas between PhD students, leading to a more unified Dutch research community in logic for young researchers. Logic research in the Netherlands is most known to take place in Amsterdam (at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation), Utrecht and Groningen, but logic-related research can be found at many other Dutch universities. This event should encourage PhD students to reach out to colleagues in other Dutch cities, in order to build an academic network and remain connected to logic research at different universities.

Keynote speakers

We are happy to confirm the following keynote speakers:

  • Dr. Maria Aloni (ILLC, University of Amsterdam). Title talk: From truthmakers to information states: disjunction and negation in BSML.
  • Dr. Revantha Remanayake (University of Groningen). Title talk: Logic, Life, PhD.

Abstract submission and registration: 

PhD students can submit abstracts and/or register until June 15th 2022 [Extended Deadline];  abstracts should contain no more than 200 words. An abstract can focus on particular results of a PhD project, or on a method which is intended to lead to future results. We encourage PhD students to describe the embedding of their talk into the overall goal of their PhD. The talk should be accessible to peers from different disciplines within logic.

In order to submit an abstract, please fill in the form on If you have any inquiries, or if you cannot use this form, it is also possible to send the abstract to In the latter case, please include your name, affiliated Dutch university, and a selection of the length of your talk. Talks can be either short (<20 minutes) or long (between 20-45 minutes).

If you wish to submit an abstract or attend, please also register on the OZSW website, or directly follow this link (note: you don't have to be an OZSW member to be able to register).
