The Third World Logic Day will be celebrated worldwide on 14 January 2021 with a number of scientific forums.
World Logic Day was held for the first time on 14 January 2019. The date is associated with two of the greatest logicians of the twentieth century. Kurt Gödel died on 14 January 1978, and Alfred Tarski was born on 14 January 1901. On 13 November 2019, UNESCO declared 14 January as World Logic Day and included it in its calendar of International UNESCO Days. The event is extremely popular. Last year it was marked with 60 scientific forums in 35 countries, and this year there are currently requests for 45 scientific forums from 27 countries.
