Duality in algebra and logic

A SYSMICS workshop on connections between algebra and logic via categorical dualities. This workshop aims to bring together researchers that work in logic and/or algebra and are interested in systematic ways of transporting results between these areas. In addition to established connections such as Stone, Priestley, and Esakia dualities, the workshop aims to foster research in natural categorical dualities between classes of partial algebras, dualities for lattice-ordered structures, dualities from clone theory, and dualities based on coalgebras, as well as other bridges between algebra and logic.
