This meeting was aimed at fostering the exchange of ideas between various disciplines; emphasizing links between mathematics, computer science, philosophy and statistics.

Tutorials and talks on various aspects of non-classical logics were run, with a view to using these aspects in other areas of research. Talks generally ran for about an hour, with a generous period of discussion and questions following. Thanks to the wide-ranging nature of the research interests of the group, this format proved to be very conducive to generating cross-disciplinary ideas and constructive critique. Participants also had the opportunity to explore the seal colony near Westport and walked from the colony to the lighthouse.
