CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
WoLLIC is an annual international forum on inter-disciplinary research
involving formal logic, computing and programming theory, and natural
language and reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks and tutorials
as well as contributed papers. The twenty-second WoLLIC will be held at the
Department of Computer Science, Indiana University, Bloomington, from July
20th to 23rd, 2015. It is sponsored by the Association for Symbolic Logic
(ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the The
Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the European
Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the European
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), the Sociedade Brasileira de
Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

PROCEEDINGS
The proceedings of WoLLIC 2015, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as volume 9160 in
Springer's LNCS series. In addition, abstracts will be published in the
Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected
contributions will be published as a special post-conference WoLLIC 2015
issue of Mathematical Structures in Computer Science, CUP (tbc).

SPECIAL SESSION: SCREENING OF MOVIES ABOUT MATHEMATICIANS
In remembrance of the 30th anniversary of the passing away of Julia Hall
Bowman Robinson (December 8, 1919 – July 30, 1985), an American
mathematician best known for her work on decision problems and Hilbert's
Tenth Problem, the program of the meeting will include a screening of
George Csicsery's documentary "Julia Robinson and Hilbert's Tenth Problem"
(2008). As a tribute to a recent breakthrough in mathematics, there will
also be a screening of Csicsery's "Counting from Infinity: Yitang Zhang and
the Twin Prime Conjecture" (2015) which centers on a very exciting string
of mathematical discoveries that occurred during 2013, started when Yitang
Zhang, a virtually unknown mathematician working as adjunct professor at
the University of New Hampshire, submitted a paper to the Annals of
Mathematics in April 2013.
