SILFS on January 14 celebrates World Logic Day 2023 by sponsoring AILA, which is coordinating outreach activities throughout Italy. The activities will be held at various universities throughout Italy. Below are details of the activities organized by the participating venues.
Please note: Since January 14, 2023 is a Saturday, the activities will take place on January 13, 2023.
Activities will take place in the morning and afternoon of Jan. 13. The morning activities will be held at the Ercolani teaching rooms, Department of Computer Science, Science and Engineering, University of Bologna – via Mura Anteo Zamboni 2B. The morning activities will be dedicated to high school science students. Some simple reasoning will be proposed and, through the mathematical formalism of natural deduction, rigorously proved or disproved. The afternoon activities (2:30 p.m.) will be held in Room G1 of the Geology Building, Via Zamboni 67. The afternoon activities will be dedicated to undergraduates. Dr. Martino Lupini will give a seminar entitled Definability and invariants: new applications of logic in algebra, topology, and analysis. The seminar will present an overview of applications of logic in mathematics, focusing on an area recently developed in collaboration with Bergfalk and Panagiotopoulos, in which techniques developed in the context of the study of notions of “definability” in mathematical logic are applied to the study of algebraic invariants in homological algebra, topology, and functional analysis.

The activities will take place on the morning of Jan. 13 at the Department of Communication Sciences at the University of Teramo and will be dedicated to students enrolled in the fourth and fifth years of high school. The day will include 3 activities aimed at raising students’ awareness of the importance of scientific and, more generally, argumentative rigor. The event is organized by Prof. Raffaele Mascella and Dr. Davide Fazio in collaboration with Professors Eramo, Pelusi and Tallini (UNITE).
Program of the day.
- 9:00 – 11:00. DEBATE. 4 teams will compete in duels during which debates on current issues will be held. During each duel one team will have to argue a thesis and the other will have to try to refute it using rigorous argumentative strategies. The winners of the matches will compete in a final.
- 11:10 – 12:00. THE SCIENCE OF REASONING. During this talk, arguments whose analysis will touch on some of the most important aspects of contemporary logic, from non-classical logics to non-monotonic logics, will be reviewed interactively.
- 12:00 – 12:30 P.M.: LOGIC, COMPUTERS, IA. During this talk given by Prof. Eramo, Prof. Danilo Pelusi, and Prof. Luca Tallini, some of the most important applications of Logic in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence will be reviewed.

Verso l’infinito e oltre…
The activities will take place on the morning of Jan. 13 (9 a.m. to noon) at the Department of Mathematics “G. Peano,” University of Turin and will be dedicated to upper secondary school students. The activities will include an initial mini-conference and workshops.
