Award & Grant


We are pleased to announce that the following paper was selected as the best student paper from the papers accepted for presentation at LORI VI, and was awarded the prize of 60,000 Japanese Yen (approximately 500 Euro).

Adam Prenosil, ``Contradictory information as a basis for rational belief''.

This is made possible by the generous support from Tsinghua University - University of Amsterdam Joint Research Centre for Logic.

The criteria of eligibility was the following.

Any paper authored by a student were considered as a student paper. A coauthored paper were considered as a student paper only if all the coauthors were students. By ``student'' we mean those who were regular graduate students or undergraduate students at the time of LORI VI. Those who were students at the time of submitting their papers and who had not yet obtained full-time academic employment at the time of the conference were also considered as students.


LORI VI is now an ASL(Association for Symbolic Logic)-sponsored meeting. Student ASL members may apply for (limited) ASL travel funds that ASL is making available for sponsored meetings. For more on this, see the page on "Student Travel Awards: ASL or ASL-Sponsored Meetings" in ASL website.
