Computational Logic Day 2015

The goal of the Computational Logic Day is to bring together researchers working in all areas of computational logic and closely related topics, including but not limited to automated reasoning, logic-based knowledge representation, constraint programming and optimization, as well as applications. The event forms an end seminar for a 2-year mobility program between Aalto and University of Potsdam (funded by the Academy of Finland and DAAD Germany).
