Logic in Konstanz

On this page, you can find information concerning the activities of the interdisciplinary logic group of the University of Konstanz.


Carolin Antos, Salma Kuhlmann

Participating Departments:

Here you can subscribe to the logic mailing list to receive information about the colloquium sessions and other activities of the group.

Logic courses

You find the logic section of the university course catalogue HERE . Please do not forget to list your logic-related courses in this section. If you cannot enter your courses yourself, please ask your departmental secretary to do so. The idea is to make all logic related courses of the different departments visible to interested students. Please point out to your students that such an interdisciplinary logic section exists.

Logic talks

Here you can find news about Logic talks taking place at the University of Konstanz not organised by the Logic Colloquium.

Logik Kolloquium

The Logik Kolloquium takes place about four times per term on Monday, 15:15–16:45, usually in room F420.
The talks are communicated via the mailing list and announced here.

The Colloquium is kindly supported by the Dr. August and Annelies Karst Stiftung.
