EBL 2014 - 17th Brazilian Logic Conference
April 7-11, 2014 - Petrópolis, Brazil

The Brazilian Logic Conference (EBL) is a traditional event on the agenda of several prominent researchers in Brazil and Latin America in the areas of Logic, Foundations and Philosophy of Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, Informatics, and Artificial Intelligence.

Previous editions of the EBL have been a great success, attracting researchers from all over Latin America and elsewhere. The EBL has become an important meeting point and discussion forum for students and researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic.

In 2014, the EBL will be held at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LNCC), at Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro.

The goal of the EBL is to encourage the dissemination and discussion of research papers in the area of Logic and their interconnections with the areas of Foundations and Philosophy of Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, Informatics, and Artificial Intelligence.
