CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
THE CONSTRUCTIVE IN LOGIC AND APPLICATIONS.
A 60TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION HONORING SERGEI ARTEMOV
May 23–25, 2012, in the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York City.
Constructivity is fundamental to the application of mathematics to the real world, whether in the exact sciences, the social sciences, or engineering. Constructive logics supporting this tradition have flourished over the last century. This conference is a celebration of the past and future of the constructive tradition.
Distinguished logician Sergei Artemov is 60. He has made fundamental contributions exploring constructivity in logic, computer science, epistemology, game theory, and other areas. With this conference we honor his work, and by extension a subject whose content he has elucidated and whose boundaries he has expanded.
Scientific Committee: Anil Nerode (Cornell) and Melvin Fitting (CUNY)
