Logic deals with the fundamental notions of truth and falsity. Modal logic arose from the philosophical study of "modes of truth" with the two most common modes being "necessarily true" and "possibly true". Research in modal logic now spans the spectrum from philosophy, computer science and mathematics using techniques from relational structures, universal algebra, topology, and proof theory. These proceedings record the papers presented at the tenth conference in the AiML series, held in Groningen, the Netherlands, in August 2014. It includes important new developments in pure and applied modal logic, in using modal logic to reason about obligations, about programs, about time, about combinations of modal logics and even about negation itself.

Modal logic is a subject with ancient roots in the western logical tradition. Up until the last few generations, it was pursued mainly as a branch of philosophy. But in recent years, the subject has taken new directions with connections to topics in computer science and mathematics. This volume is the proceedings of the the ninth conference in the AiML series, held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in August 2012. Its contributions are state-of-the-art papers. The topics include decidability and complexity results for specific modal logics, proof theory of modal logic, logics for reasoning about time and space, provability logic, dynamic epistemic logic, and the logic of evidence.

Volume 9 is available online.

and Valentin Shehtman, editors.

College Publications, 2010.


Volume 8 contains invited and contributed papers from the eighth conference in the AiML series, held in Moscow, Russia, in August 2010. It reports on substantial advances, both in the foundations of modal logic and in a number of application areas. It includes papers on general problems in model theory, proof theory and algorithmic properties of modal logics, on systems for spatial, temporal and epistemic reasoning, on related kinds of logics - description, relevance, substructural, intuitionistic, and on related topics in algebraic logic.

Volume 7 contains invited and contributed papers from the seventh conference in the series, held in Nancy, France, in September 2008. It reports on substantial advances, both in the foundations of modal logic and in a number of application areas. It includes papers on the metatheory of a variety of modal logics; on systems for spatial and temporal reasoning and interpreting natural language; on the emerging coalgebraic perspective; and on historical vews of the nature of modality.
