The Logic Colloquium 2018 is the annual European summer meeting of
the Association of Symbolic Logic (ASL) 
It will be held during July 23-28, 2018, at the University of Udine, Italy,
and is organized by the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science,
and Physics of the University of Udine.

The latest meetings took place in Paris (2010), Barcelona (2011),
Manchester (2012), Evora (2013), Vienna (2014), Helsinki (2015),
Leeds (2016), and Stockholm (2017).

The Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL) is an international organization
supporting research and critical studies in logic.
Its primary function is to provide an effective forum for the presentation,
publication, and discussion of scholarly work in this area of inquiry.
The Association holds two major annual meetings to present current
research in all aspects of logic in a way that is accessible to all
