We welcome submissions of the following types:

> Contributed talks. Please submit a one-page abstract by April 15 2015.

> Discussion sessions. These are aimed at highlighting open problems, discussing ongoing work, technical and conceptual aspects, approaches, methodologies and perspectives at the interface of the general areas the conference focuses on. The first discussant introduces the topic with a 10-minute presentation, and then moderates the ensuing discussion. If you are interested in being the first discussant for a discussion session, please submit a one-page abstract by April 15 2015.

> Prospective contributions to a special issue. We are working towards a Studia Logica special issue on the themes of the conference. If you are interested in contributing to this special issue, please submit a one-page abstract describing the topic of your prospective submission by February 15 2015. If a sufficient number of prospective contributions is reached, we will propose a timeline for submissions.
