13 – 15 January 2020
- Brno Observatory and Planetarium, Masaryk University
Several dozens of experts will meet up from January 13 to 15 at the Brno Observatory and Planetarium and Masaryk University. This will be part of the Tribute to Kurt Gödel 2020 conference.
There are twelve outstanding personalities on the list of speakers. For example, Professor Matthias Baaz from the University of Vienna, Professor Albert Visser from the Utrecht University, or Associate Professor Curtis Franks from the University of Notre-Dame. Czech scientists, Professor Pavel Pudlák from the Institute of Matematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, who was awarded with the Neuron Award, and Professor Jiří Rosický from the Faculty of Science, Masaryk University also achieved international success.
As a part of the conference, the Kurt Gödel Prize will be awarded to an outstanding person who has contributed to the development of the Gödel's legacy and to the popularization of Gödel's work in his hometown and worldwide.
The conference is intended primarily for experts, but even the general public will not come short. At the same time, there will be published a map "Kurt @ BRNO #", which is supposed to be a playful guide of the footsteps of Kurt Gödel. Logical paradoxes and various puns will be part of it.
