Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, we had to delay the LRB20 conference. The conference will be held online from July 14 to July 17, 2021. For the details of the online event,  please visit the following website: https://conferences.renyi.hu/lrb20-online

There are several new and rapidly evolving research areas blossoming out from the interaction of logic and relativity theory. The aim of this conference series, which take place once every 2 or 3 years, is to attract and bring together mathematicians, physicists, philosophers of science, and logicians from all over the world interested in these and related areas to exchange new ideas, problems and results. The spirit of this conference series goes back to the Vienna Circle and Tarski's initiative Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science. We aim to provide a friendly atmosphere that enables fruitful interdisciplinary cooperation leading to joint research and publications.

Topics include (but are not restricted to):

  • Special and general relativity
  • Axiomatizing physical theories
  • Foundations of spacetime
  • Computability and physics
  • Relativistic computation
  • Cosmology
  • Relativity theory and philosophy of science
  • Knowledge acquisition in science
  • Temporal and spatial logic
  • Branching spacetime
  • Equivalence, reduction and emergence of theories
  • Cylindric and relation algebras
  • Definability theory
  • Concept algebras and algebraic logic
