Along these years UNILOG has been a leading international logical event 
with the participation of many famous logicians such as Wilfrid Hodges, 
Daniele Mundici, Saul Kripke, Jaakko Hintikka, Dov Gabbay, Arnon Avron, 
Benedikt Löwe, David Makinson, Yde Venema, Newton da Costa, Mike Dunn, 
Val Goranko,  Yuri Gurevich,  Janusz Czelakowski, Stephen Read, Sara 
Negri, Arnold Koslow, Peter Schröder-Heister, Gila Sher, Hiroakira Ono,

Kracht, Melvin Fitting, Luciano Floridi,  Patrick Blackburn, Jan 
Wolenski, Krister Segerberg, Dale Jacquette, Sun-Joo Shin, Jouko 
Väänänen, John Woods and many more.

UNILOG is a logic event in a broad sense. It gathers people from many 
horizons (philosophy,  mathematics, linguistics, computer science, 
semiotics, cognitive science ...) and the idea is to promote interaction 
between all these people.

The previous  edition in Istanbul gathered more than  400 logicians from 
about 50 different countries.
For the 6th edition we will follow the same format:
- A school of logic of 5 days with 30 tutorials
- A congress of 6 days with about 30 sessions/workshops
- A contest (the topic will be announced soon)
- A secret speaker (speaker whose identity is revealed only at the time 
of her / its / his speech).

Vichy is a charming relaxing thermal city at the middle of France, 
developed by Napoleon III in the second half of the 19th century, who in 
particular created beautiful parks with species of trees from all over
the world.  Vichy, in the Duchy of Bourbon, a region full of castles, is 
a  small city,  where  it is possible to go everywhere just by walking.
The event will take place at the university campus nearby the Celestins 
spring, the banks of the Allier river (where it is possible to swim) and 
the city center. June is a very nice time to be in Vichy with lots of 
animations, including  on June 21 a very lively musical day celebrating 
summertime.

Deadline to submit an abstract: September 15, 2017

Looking forward to seeing you in Vichy in June 2018
