Call of 2022 (archived)

Dov Gabbay The Dov Gabbay Prize for Logic and Foundations is an international research prize launched on the occasion of Professor Dov Gabbay's 77th birthday. This initiative honours the extraordinary and multi-faceted scientific and editorial work of Dov Gabbay, known in particular for editing an extensive collection of specialized Logic Handbooks.

The Jury

The jury consists of six renowned logicians from relevant areas of Mathematics, Philosophy and Computer Science. For the round 2022/2023 it includes:

Call for Nominations


The prize rewards outstanding researchers in Logic and Foundations, including Mathematical, Philosophical, and Computational Logic. It promotes work able to inspire current and future generations of logicians, if not a broader audience, ideally combining deep foundational insight and conceptual innovation with sophisticated theoretical analysis.

The winner will receive a cash prize of 2001 EUR and be invited to give a talk (accessible for an online audience) at a major logic centre or a logic-related meeting, the choice depending on the recipient's research area. Additional efforts will be made to promote the rewarded scientific work.


Each nomination has to specify the researcher, provide a justification accessible to non-expert logicians (0.5-2 pages), and list the publications considered relevant.

It also has to include the name, affiliation, and email address of the nominator. Self-nominations are not allowed, the nominator should not depend on the nominee. Proposals in pdf format should be sent to dgp[at]iloaf[dot]org. The deadline and focus of the call 2023/2024 will be determined.


The decision is made by an independent selection committee consisting of six internationally renowned logicians representing Mathematical, Philosophical, and Computational Logic. The jury can decide in a given year to attribute no prize, or to split the prize.


Prize and process are managed by the Logic and Foundations Initiative (ILOAF), which aims at initiating and supporting scientific and educational activities in these areas. It is currently generously sponsored by the Luxembourg Logic Community.


Questions and nominations should be directed to the organizing committee via email: dgp[at]iloaf[dot]org.
