The Logical Perspectives event series aims at bringing together distinguished logicians to present their perspectives on the future of the field, to discuss related open problems, and to foster new collaborations. The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • logical methods in mathematics;
  • logical methods in philosophy;
  • logical methods in computer science;
  • logical methods in linguistics.
The LP 2018 conference was held at Euler International Mathematical Institute in Saint Petersburg. The LP 2020 conference was planned, but it was moved to June 2021 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a replacement for the LP 2020 conference, it has been decided to organize an online event on November 17–18, 2020, which will include several open lectures.

The event is supported by Steklov International Mathematical Center.
