The joint ALFAn - PHILOGICA conference is designed to provide a forum for new work in any area of analytic philosophy, logic, cognitive science, and related fields. The format of the conference will provide an opportunity for speakers to receive constructive feedback from interested colleagues from Colombia and Latin America, and for other participants to become acquainted with new work in the field.
