On 14 January 2023, we celebrate World Logic Day. In the city of Kurt Gödel, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the Vienna Circle, mathematical logic and its application to the sciences have a long and rich tradition. This January, we welcome Dov Gabbay (King’s College London and University of Luxembourg) as speaker at the Vienna World Logic Day Lecture.

The Vienna World Logic Day Lecture is organized by the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms (VCLA).


The reasoning patterns and technological advances in the 21st century used in artificial intelligence, social media, and political behavior present a challenge to current applied logic and argumentation. The old logic has to adapt, evolve, or die. This lecture will show (through a case study) how to adapt intuitionistic and classical logics to an algorithmic version capable of handling reasoning failures, fallacies, bias, alternative truth, and other problems. We shall use a combination of technical tools developed in the past 40 years.


To join the online lecture and discussion, please register on eventbrite. You will then receive a link in order to participate via zoom. Alternatively, you can follow the lecture on YouTube.
