Asian Workshop on Philosophical Logic (AWPL) is an event-series initiated by a group of Asian logicians, and in 2012 the first  installment took place at the JAIST in Japan. It is devoted to promote awareness, understanding, and collaborations among researchers in philosophical logic and related fields. The workshop emphasizes the interplay of philosophical ideas and formal theories. Topics of interest include non-classical logics, philosophical logics, algebraic logics, and their applications in computer science, cognitive science, and social sciences. The second, third and fourth workshops took place successfully in Guangzhou (2014), Taipei (2016) and Beijing (2018), respectively. The previous post conference proceedings were published in the Studia Logica book series “Logic in Asia” ( with Springer.
