Penn Logic and Computation Seminar 1997-1998

The logic and computation group is composed of faculty and graduate students from the computer and information science, mathematics, and philosophy departments, and participates in the Institute for Research in the Cognitive Sciences.

The logic and computation group runs a weekly seminar. The seminar meets regularly during the school year on Mondays at 4:30 p.m. in room 4C8 of the David Rittenhouse Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. Any changes to this schedule will be specifically noted. The seminar is open to the public and all are welcome. Directions to DRL can be found here.
