PhD EuroConference

Complexity in Mathematics and Computer Science

Universität Wien
Institut für Formale Logik

September 21st to 24th, 2001

"Foundations of the Formal Sciences" (FotFS) is a series of interdisciplinary conferences in mathematics, philosophy, computer science and linguistics. The main goal is to reestablish the traditionally strong links between these areas of research that have been lost in the past decades.

The talks of the conferences will be addressed at a general audience, but their objective is to teach techniques and methods from the different parts of the Formal Sciences to researchers from other parts. All talks will be given to a general audience of mathematicians, logicians, philosophers, computer scientists and linguists. Since we intend to promote genuinely interdisciplinary joint work, we would like to have talks that are neither general surveys nor specialized research announcements, but presentations of problems and techniques.

The conference is a PhD EuroConference in the European Community program "Improving Human Research Potential and the Socio-Economic Knowledge Base - High-Level Scientific Conferences". Therefore the speakers have to satisfy the "young researcher" criterion of the European Commission. The conference will be organized into six sections:


Each section will have two to four talks (between 25 and 50 minutes).

There will be a proceedings volume with refereed papers of all talks.

We shall collect a conference fee of ATS 750 (= $ 50) covering material and other expenses. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the organizers via .
