Logic in Communication is the name of a collaborative Amsterdam research effort in the area of logic and language. The disciplines of logic and formal semantics are firmly rooted in Amsterdam, and Amsterdam has grown out to be one of the most lively centers research in modal logic and dynamic semantics. The Logic in Communication project is aimed at combining and strengthening the Amsterdam expertise.

The Logic in Communication project is more specifically concerned with the formal notion of information: logical properties of information, information exchange and information structure. This interdisciplinary research enterprise figures as a centering point for studies in natural language semantics, the philosophy of action and cognition, artificial intelligence and computer science, and it uses the combined tools from proof, model, and game theory. Its main results can be consulted via the homepages of the project members, or via the booklet which has been produced as a state of the art statement at the end of the project.
