The conference is held in conjunction with ESSLLI 2014.

# Topic

Hypothetical reasoning or reasoning under assumptions is a key concept of logic, philosophy of science and mathematics. This conference focusses on its logical aspects, such as

- assumption-based calculi and their proof theory
- logical consequence from a proof-theoretic or model-theoretic point of view
- logics of conditionals
- proof systems
- structure of assumption-based proofs
- hypotheses in proof-theoretic semantics
- notions of implication
- substructural logics
- hypotheses in categorial logic
- logical aspects of scientific explanation
- hypothetical reasoning in mathematics
- reasoning from definitions and axioms

The conference is organised as part of the French-German ANR-DFG project HYPOTHESES.

The program committee consists of the members of this project.
