The Workshop on History of Arabic Logic has two main aims: to make better known the richness and importance of Arabic logic, that is, logic developed and studied in Arabic-speaking lands from the 8th to the 15th centuries CE; and to provide a forum for interaction and discussion by scholars of Arabic logic.

Call for Papers: We invite contributions focusing both on the logic developed and studied in Arabic-speaking lands from the 8th to the 15th centuries CE and on its influence on Medieval Western logic. Accepted presentations will be 1 hour in length including time for questions.

Presenters should arrange their own conference travel and accommodation.
