ISBN (Paperback): 1-575-86516-5, 200 pages ISBN (Cloth): 1-575-86515-7, 200 pages * This is an anthology of previously unpublished essays on self-reference from some of the most outstanding scholars in philosophy, mathematics, and computer science. The volume is accessible to students and compelling for scholars as it reexamines the latest theories of self-reference, including those that attempt to explain and resolve the semantic and set-theoretic paradoxes. A thorough introduction by the editors sets the stage for original contributions from Andrea Cantini, Melvin Fitting, Anil Gupta, Vann McGee, Don Perlis, Graham Priest, Raymond M. Smullyan, and Stephen Yablo. * For over 2000 years self-reference, in the form of the Liar's Paradox, was considered a philosophical oddity. In 1902, self-referential set-theoretic paradoxes triggered a foundational crisis in mathematics. Since then, self-reference has continued to play a key role in philosophical and mathematical logic as well as, more recently, in theoretical computer science. This thought-provoking volume contains a collection of cutting-edge articles on this important topic. Moshe Y. Vardi * This is a book that every logician will want to read. The well-worn topics of self-reference and the paradoxes have been given new life in these papers by a distinguished group of logicians. Elliot Mendelson WORKSHOP ON UNIVERSAL ALGEBRA AND THE CONSTRAINT SATISFACTION PROBLEM (co-located with the International Conference on Order, Algebra, and Logics) Nashville, June 17 -- 20, 2007 http://www.math.vanderbilt.edu/~uacsp2007/ *Theme. The Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP) provides a framework for expressing a large number of combinatorial search problems that arise in wide areas of computer science and discrete mathematics. The primary goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from the universal algebra/lattice theory and CSP communities to further the algebraic approach to several conjectures and problems related to constraint satisfaction. Tutorials will be offered to provide participants with the requisite background material and then a series of invited lectures on recent work on the CSP and algebra will be given. Secondary goals are to foster and strengthen links between computer science and mathematics and to provide graduate students and junior researchers with a rich and interesting set of new problems to work on. * Invited Speakers: Albert Atserias (Technical University of Catalonia), Manuel Bodirsky (Humboldt University), Andrei Bulatov (SFU), Hubie Chen (University Pompeu Fabra), Victor Dalmau (University Pompeu Fabra), Andrei Krokhin (University of Durham), Gabor Kun (University of Memphis), Benoit Larose (Champlain Regional College), Miklòs Maròti (University of Szeged), Petar Markovic (University of Novi Sad), Ralph McKenzie (Vanderbilt), Pascal Tesson (Laval University), Heribert Vollmer (University of Hannover), Ross Willard (University of Waterloo), Lázsló Zádori (University of Szeged) * A limited number of contributed talks will be presented.

International Workshop on Hybrid Logic 2007 (HyLo 2007) (affiliated with ESSLLI 2007) First Call for Papers Dublin, 6 - 10 August, 2007 http://hylomol.ruc.dk/HyLo2007 * Theme. Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference to worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid logic on the grounds of applications as the additional expressive power is very useful. In addition, hybrid-logical machinery improves the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism. The topic of the HyLo workshop of 2007 is not only standard hybrid-logical machinery like nominals, satisfaction operators, and the downarrow binder, but generally extensions of modal logic that increase its expressive power.The workshop HyLo 2007 will be relevant to a wide range of people, including those interested in description logic, feature logic, applied modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. * Submission. Details will be announced at the workshop web page. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by ESSLLI. It is planned to publish revised versions of the accepted papers in a special issue of Journal of Logic, Language and Information. * Submission deadline: March 8, 2007 * Program committee.
