Workshop on Logics of Dependence and Independence (LoDE 2020V)

Online (virtual), August 10-12, 2020

Logics of dependence and independence are novel non-classical logics aiming at characterizing dependence and independence notions in sciences. This field of research has grown rapidly in recent years. The framework of the logics has found applications also in fields like database theory, linguistics, social choice, quantum physics and so on. This workshop will bring together researchers from all these relevant areas and provide a snapshot of the state of the art of logics of dependence and independence.

News: This workshop was organized originally as part of ESSLLI 2020, which has been postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. The organizing committee has decided to move the LoDE workshop online.
