    Budapest, Hungary. 2016


AiML 2016 will be organized by András Máté with Lev Beklemishev and Stéphane Demri as programme co-chairs.

The conference will be held at the Department of Logic, Institute of Philosophy, Eötvös University, Budapest.


  • The deadline is just assumed from the previous conferences but the correct one will be announced…




Advances in Modal Logic is an initiative aimed at presenting the state of the art in modal logic and its various applications. The initiative consists of a conference series together with volumes based on the conferences. Information about the AiML series can be obtained at http://www.aiml.net. AiML-2016 is the 11th conference in the series.

TOPICS We invite submission on all aspects of modal logic, including:

  • history of modal logic
  • philosophy of modal logic
  • applications of modal logic
  • computational aspects of modal logic (complexity and decidability of modal and temporal logics, modal and temporal logic programming, model checking, model generation, theorem proving for modal logics)
  • theoretical aspects of modal logic (algebraic/categorical perspectives on modal logic, coalgebraic modal logic, completeness and canonicity, correspondence and duality theory, many-dimensional modal logics, modal fixed point logics, model theory of modal logic, proof theory of modal logic)
  • specific instances and variations of modal logic (description logics, modal logics over non-boolean bases, dynamic logics and other process logics, epistemic and deontic logics, modal logics for agent-based systems, modal logic and game theory, modal logic and grammar formalisms, provability and interpretability logics, spatial and temporal logics, hybrid logic, intuitionistic logic, substructural logics, computationally light fragments of all such logics)

Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS There will be two types of submissions to AiML-2016:

(1) Full papers for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the conference.

(2) Short presentations intended for presentation at the conference but not for the published proceedings.

Both types of papers should be submitted electronically using the EasyChair submission page at


At least one author of each accepted paper or short presentation must register for and attend the conference.

(1) FULL PAPERS Authors are invited to submit, for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings, full papers reporting on original research and not submitted elsewhere. The proceedings of AiML-2016 will be published by College Publications


in a volume to be made available at the conference.

The submissions should be at most 15 pages, with an optional technical appendix of up to 5 pages, together with a plain-text abstract of 100-200 words. The submissions must be typeset in LaTeX, using the style files and template that will be provided on the AiML-2016 website http://phil.elte.hu/aiml2016/ in due time.

We also ask authors of full papers to submit the abstract in plain text via EasyChair by 10 March.

(2) SHORT PRESENTATIONS. These should be at most 5 pages. They may describe preliminary results, work in progress etc., and will be subject to light reviewing. The accepted submissions will be made available at the conference, and the authors will have the opportunity to give short presentations (of up to 15 minutes) on them.

Advances in Modal Logic is a bi-annual international conference and book series in Modal Logic.

The aim of the conference series is to report on important new developments in pure and applied modal logic, and to do so at varying locations throughout the world.

The book series is based on the conferences. Please consult the background pages for further details.
