About the topic

Logic is an interdisciplinary research field ranging from philosophy and linguistics to mathematics and computer science. The Dutch Logic PhD Day 2022 welcomes contributions to various topics within these subfields of logic. Talks will focus on current research on these topics, so that the event will create a good impression of logic-related PhD research that is carried out within the Netherlands.

Information about the event can also be found at http://www.verenigingvoorlogica.nl/en/Activities/Dutch-Logic-PhD-Day-2022/.

Aim / objective

The goal of this event is to foster a community of PhD students in the Netherlands in all areas of logic, which will manifest itself not only at individual institutions, but in the Netherlands as a whole. This will encourage collaborations and exchange of ideas between PhD students, leading to a more unified Dutch research community in logic for young researchers. Logic research in the Netherlands is most known to take place in Amsterdam (at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation), Utrecht and Groningen, but logic-related research can be found at many other Dutch universities. Interaction between these universities is scarce, and this event should encourage PhD students to reach out to colleagues in other Dutch cities, in order to build an academic network and remain connected to logic research at different universities. Although the main target group consists of PhD students, the event will also be open to master’s students who are interested in logic, if places are available.


Depending on the topics of submitted abstracts, the day will be divided into four sessions that each focus on a different area of logic. During these sessions, PhD students in logic throughout the Netherlands will be able to give an accessible talk about the goal of their research project and any results they have so far. Additionally, there will be two invited talks given by senior researchers in logic in the Netherlands. They will be scheduled as the first and last speakers of the event. There will be several coffee breaks and a lunch break during which it is encouraged to get to know each other better, and we will end the day with a closing reception. Although PhD’s are very welcome to give a talk, it is not required for participation.


PhD students will give talks about their own research.

Key note speakers


Abstract submission

PhD students can submit abstracts until June 15th, which should contain no more than 200 words. An abstract can focus on particular results of a PhD project, or on a method which is intended to lead to future results. We encourage PhD students to describe the embedding of their talk into the overall goal of their PhD. The talk should be accessible to peers from different disciplines within logic.

In order to submit your abstract, please fill in the registration form. A link to the registration form will be made available in the “How to apply / register” section below once registration opens.

Required preparations

There is no necessary preparation.

Certificate / credit points

No ECTs can be earned with this event.


The event is free for everyone (although travelling costs to Utrecht will not be paid for).

How to apply / register

PhD candidates and (Research) Master students can register for the Dutch Logic PhD Day here. In the registration form we will ask about your field of research (within logic), the Dutch university you are affiliated with, and whether or not you are submitting an abstract.

Update 02.06.2022: Research Master and Master students can register directly through the registration link below. No need to email the secretariat first — Research Master students and Master students cannot register right away. If interested in participating, please e-mail the secretariat at secretariaat@ozsw.nl. Please mention your Research Masters / Master program and university. You will be notified asap if you can register for the event.

Registration deadline is June 15th.

If registration has been closed because the maximum amount of participants has been reached, you can submit your name to the waiting list by sending an email to secretariaat@ozsw.nl.
