Dear Friends:

We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract of a contributed talk to TPLCV-2020. 

Deadline of the submission: 30 June 2020

Notification of accepted contributed talk: 20 July, 2020


The Taiwan Philosophical Logic Colloquium (TPLCs for short) is one of two series of biennial conferences established since 2012 and is hosted by Department of Philosophy, National Taiwan University, Taiwan. (The other is the series of Taiwan Metaphysics Colloquium (TMCs for short), established since 2013). Funding is mainly sourced from annual donation by Ms. Wendy Huang and Shun Yih Ltd. The primary concern of this funding is to enhance the research of logic and analytic philosophy in Taiwan.

The aim of TPLCs is to provide a forum for dialogues amongst philosophers and logicians with regard to a variety of significant issues and topics from philosophical and logical perspectives. We intend to bring together a group of logic-minded philosophers and philosophically oriented logicians. We hope that TPLCs and TMCs will become two series of inspiring events so as to promote the development of logic and analytic philosophy, especially philosophical logic, metaphysics, and epistemology, etc., in Asian area, especially in Taiwan.

TPLCs has been flourishing since 2012 and we have had several successful conferences. We have published two volumes of post-conference proceedings, i.e. Structural Analysis of Nonclassical Logics (TPLC 2-2014), and Philosophical Logic: Current Trends in Asia (AWPL-TPLC 3-2016), in the ‘Logic in Asia’ (LIAA) Book Series, a subseries of Studia Logica Library, by Springer in 2015 and 2017 respectively. A book-proposal for a post-conference proceedings for TPLC 4-2018 has been approved to be published as a Synthese special Issue entitled ‘Conditionals: Truth-Conditions, Probability and Causality’ (forthcoming), which will be included in the newly established book-series ‘Topic Collections’ of Synthese.

Following the tradition of TPLCs, we are planning to publish a proceedings for TPLC 5-2020 as a new volume of the ‘Logic in Asia’ (LIAA) Book Series (Studia Logica Library, Springer), or some other venue. All authors of papers at the conference will be encouraged to submit a full length paper. All papers submitted will be refereed to high journal standards, and acceptance as a presentation is no guarantee that the post-conference paper will be published. A formal schedule concerning the submission of manuscripts and some other details will be announced after the conference. Based on our previous experience, the deadline of the submission of manuscripts is more likely to be around the end of June, 2021.



Free accommodation and travel awards for students and junior researchers have been made available by the organizing committee. In some case full compensation of expenses is possible. If you are eligible for application, please send the message to Kok Yong Lee when you submit the abstract.
