Welcome to

22nd Annual Conference of the Calcutta Logic Circle 2023

[Dedicated to the memory of Prof. Ranjan Mukhopadhyay]

(Jointly organized by the CLC and Ramakrishna Mission Residential College, Narendrapur)

Conference Dates: August 12-14, 2023

We are delighted to announce that, after a hiatus of three years, the 22nd Annual Conference of the Calcutta Logic Circle will be held in its usual format at the Ramakrishna Mission Residential College, Narendrapur, from 12th to 14th August 2023.

The Calcutta Logic Circle (CLC) is a group of academics interested in logic from diverse backgrounds, including Mathematics, Philosophy, and Computer Science. The group, although informal, has motivated, nurtured, and helped launch the careers of several Indian logicians since its inception in 1987. Apart from a weekly study circle, the group has been organizing annual meets or conferences, for which it has had the good fortune of hosting several scholars of international repute over the years. More on the CLC, its history, and past activities, including the speakers in the previous annual meets, can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/calcuttalogiccircleclc.

This year CLC has lost one of its founding members, Prof. Ranjan Mukhopadhyay, a philosopher with a wide range of interests, including proof theory and constructivism. We have thus decided to dedicate this year’s annual conference of the CLC to Prof. Mukhopadhayay.

The conference this year is being organized by the CLC in collaboration with the Ramakrishna Mission Residential College at Narendrapur, which is also the venue for the event. Narendrapur is a suburb of Kolkata, the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal, and is a short drive from the city center.
