      TOPOLOGY, ALGEBRA AND CATEGORIES IN LOGIC (TACL 2011)
      Third and final call for papers
      ===============================================================================

      July 26-30, 2011
      Universités Aix-Marseille I-II-III, France
      http://www.lif.univ-mrs.fr/tacl2011/


      Scope
      -----

      Studying logics via semantics is a well-established and very active
      branch of mathematical logic, with many applications, in computer
      science and elsewhere. The area is characterized by results, tools
      and techniques stemming from various fields, including universal
      algebra, topology, category theory, order, and model theory. The
      program of the conference TACL 2011 will focus on three
      interconnecting mathematical themes central to the semantical study
      of logics and their applications: algebraic, categorical, and
      topological methods. This is the fifth conference in the series
      Topology, Algebra and Categories in Logic (TACL, formerly TANCL).
      Earlier installments of this conference have been organized in
      Tbilisi (2003), Barcelona (2005), Oxford (2007), Amsterdam (2009).


      Featured topics
      ---------------

      Contributed talks can deal with any topic dealing with the use of
      algebraic, categorical or topological methods in either logic or
      computer science. This includes, but is not limited to, the following
      areas:

      * Algebraic structures in CS
      * Algebraic logic
      * Coalgebra
      * Categorical methods in logic
      * Domain theory
      * Fuzzy and many-valued logics
      * Lattice theory
      * Lattices with operators
      * Modal logics
      * Non-classical logics
      * Ordered topological spaces
      * Ordered algebraic structures
      * Pointfree topology
      * Proofs and Types
      * Residuated structures
      * Semantics
      * Stone-type dualities
      * Substructural logics
      * Topological semantics of modal logic


      Invited speakers
      ----------------

      * Steve Awodey, Carnegie Mellon University
      * Lev Beklemishev, Steklov Mathematical Institute Moscow
      * David Gabelaia, Tbilisi Razmadze Mathematical Institute
      * Nikolaos Galatos, University of Denver
      * Pierre Gillibert, Charles University Prague
      * Jean Goubault-Larrecq, ENS Cachan, CNRS, INRIA
      * Rosalie Iemhoff, Utrecht University

      Esakia session
      --------------

      The Fifth International Conference on Topology, Algebra and Categories
      in Logic is dedicated to the memory of Leo Esakia (1934-2010).

      In Leo's honour there will be a special session during the conference;
      three of the invited speakers will be giving their talk in this session:
      Lev Beklemishev, David Gabelaia, and Mamuka Jibladze. In addition, a
      memorial talk on the life and work of Leo Esakia will delivered by the
      chair of this session, Guram Bezhanishvili.

      The program committee specially encourages submissions related to the
      work of Leo Esakia, and may select some of these submission for
      presentation at the special session.

      Submissions
      -----------

      Contributed presentations will be of two types:

      * standard presentations of 20 minutes in parallel sessions,
      * featured, 30 minutes long, plenary presentations.

      The submission of an extended abstract in pdf format will be required to be
      selected for a contributed presentation of either kind.

      Concerning the standard presentations, while preference will be given to
      new work, results that have already been published or presented
      elsewhere will also be considered.
      Concerning the featured presentations: the program committee will choose
      a small number of submissions of which the authors will be invited to
      give a plenary presentation. The criteria for this selection will be:
      originality, significance and interest to the wider TACL community.

      There will be just one submission procedure, for contributed
      presentations of either kind: authors are requested to submit a short
      text of four pages, in English and in pdf format, through the easychair
      submission site:
      https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tacl2011

      Important dates
      ---------------

      April 18, 2011: Abstract submission deadline
      May 20, 2011: Notification to authors
      July 26-30, 2011: Conference
