The Victoria University of Wellington has a tradition of research and scholarship in Logic dating back to the 1950’s and the appointment of George Hughes to the first Chair in Philosophy. Over the years there have been many productive collaborations between mathematical, philosophical and computational logicians. A formal Centre for Logic, Language and Computation operated during 2001-2018, overseeing a graduate programme in Logic & Computation.

The pages of this site record some of the activities of people working in Logic at VUW, including publications and grants and awards received.

Australasian Journal of Logic

The University runs the open-access online Australasian Journal of Logic on behalf of the Australasian Association for Logic. The Managing Editor is Edwin Mares. The journal website is hosted by the University Library.
