Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL)

Our main activity is that of a research and information clearing house, and there is no cost involved in joining the group. The group is part of The Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI).

It grew out of an idea about setting up an organisation in London for the exchange of information on logic among the various logic-related communities. Such an organisation would have the purpose of acting as an information clearing house.

Founded in 1990, the IGPL currently has a membership of over 1000 researchers in various aspects of logic (symbolic, computational, mathematical, philosophical, etc.) from all over the world (currently, 57 countries).

Our activities include:

We are no longer circulating "Call for Papers"'s or "Book Announcement"'s through our members e-mail addresses, but we have a page for accepting and displaying information on CfP's:

A full membership list is available upon request.

(From 1993 up to 1996 it used to be published several times per year by the Max Planck Institut für Informatik, Saarbrücken, and Imperial College, London.)

The Journal is an attempt to solve a problem in the logic (in particular, IGPL) community:

Papers in the final form should be in LaTeX.

The Journal is made available as an electronic journal as well as a hard copy journal.

As from Volume 10 (2002) the Journal is indexed in:

    An Appeal for Subscriptions

    Our readers are aware that last year Oxford University Press have distributed the Logic Journal of the IGPL free both electronically and on paper. We have also announced the OUP policy for authors of all our journals, where authors are allowed to leave their papers available on their home page free for all readers to take.

    To maintain this policy we must have more library subscriptions for the Logic Journal of the IGPL. We urgently ask our readers to approach their libraries and arrange for a subscription. We are going to print and distribute free the Language and Computation Journal. It depends on the library subscriptions for the IGPL journal whether OUP can support this policy.

    The subscription form can be downloaded from

    Thank you for your help.
