★ A PRIZE OF LOGIC IN EVERY COUNTRY ! ★
Logic is a fundamental field of research. Among the most influential intellectuals of the 20th century, at least 4 are directly connected to logic: Kurt GĂ¶del, Bertrand Russell, Alan Turing and Ludwig Wittgenstein. However generally at a university there is no department of logic. People working in logic are spread in various institutes: philosophy, mathematics, computer sciences, linguistics, cognitive science... In a sense this spreading of logic is good. But it is also important to reinforce the interaction between logicians working in one university, in one country, in the world. This is the spirit of logic prizes.
The IDEA OF A LOGIC PRIZE IN A GIVEN COUNTRY, say SMURFLAND, is:
(1) To encourage the development of logical research in Smurfland.
(2) To foster interaction between people having interest for logic in Smurfland.
(3) To make better known logic among researchers of all fields in Smurfland.
(4) To make the work of logicians in Smurfland better known outside of Smurfland.
(5) To develop, promote and make better known logic in the world.
HOW TO ORGANIZE A PRIZE OF LOGIC IN SMURFLAND:
(1) Decide who will organize the prize and find a name of a famous logician of Smurfland for the prize.
(2) Name a Jury of important logicians representative of the various tendencies and geographical locations of Smurfland.
(3) Circulate a Call for Papers in Smurfland with a deadline, not too close but not too far, e.g. January 15, 2018.
(4) The Jury of Smurfland chooses the winner
(5) Attribution of the prize : publication of the paper of the winner in
Logica Universalis + participation to
UNILOG'2018 in Vichy.
The prize of logic in Smurfland is open to anybody living and working in Smurfland. There are no restrictions of age, sex, race, nationality. The contender only needs to be affiliated to a University in Smurfland.
If there is a logical association in Smurfland, this association can organize the prize. If there is no such association of logic in Smurfland, it is a good opportunity to create one. If it is too complicated to do it immediately the prize can be organized to start by an already existing group of logicians of Smurfland. Financial support: Smurfland will support the travell of the winner to Vichy for UNILOG'2018. UNILOG will support the accomodation of the winner of the logic prize of Smurfland at UNILOG'2018 in Vichy and will waive the registration fee for the winner.
