The stack calculus : a fundamental (and simple !) calculus for Classical LogicAround April 1 (but doesn't seem like a joke) 2013, on arxiv: We introduce a functional calculus with simple syntax and operational semantics in which the calculi introduced so far in the Curryâ€“Howard correspondence for Classical Logic can be faithfully encoded. Our calculus enjoys confluence without any restriction. Its type system enforces strong normalization of expressions and it is a sound and complete system for full implicational Classical Logic. We give a very simple denotational semantics which allows easy calculations of the interpretation of expressions. I haven't looked at the details yet, but the result are surprisingly simple and look deeply interesting  if you're into that sort of thing. I was always a bit rebuted the relatively large size of classical calculi, with lots of rules on top of the lambdacalculus. This one doesn't have a lambda primitive (a bit like System L in this respect) and is surprisingly concise.
(Fun fact: intuitionistic calculi are structured by the fact that there is only one hypothesis on the right of the turnstile. They have at most one hypothesis on the left of the turnstile.)
