                         THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL

          Southwestern University, Chongqing, China, October 8-11, 2009


About the Conference

The First International Workshop on Logic, Rationality and
Interaction (LORI-I) took place in Beijing in August 2007, with
participation by researchers from artificial intelligence, game
theory, linguistics, logic, philosophy, and cognitive science.
The workshop led to great advances in mutual understanding, both
academically and culturally, between Chinese and foreign
logicians.  Due to the success of LORI-I, we have decided to
continue organizing LORI at various places in China and possibly
other countries in Asia and the Pacific Area in the future.

The Second International Workshop on Logic, Rationality and
Interaction (LORI-II) will take place in Chongqing, China,
during October 8-11, 2009.  The Workshop will feature a
distinguished roster of invited speakers, refereed contributed
papers, poster and tutorials sessions for students, as well as
cultural events and excursions.

We now invite submissions of contributed paper bearing on any of
the broad themes of the LORI workshop series, including
knowledge acquisition, use, and management, information
exchange, rational action, and rational interaction.  Specific
topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    * semantic models for knowledge, for belief, and for uncertainty
    * dynamic logics of knowledge, information flow, and action
    * logical analysis of the structure of games
    * belief revision, belief merging
    * logics for preferences and utilities
    * logics of intentions, plans, and goals
    * logics of probability and uncertainty
    * argument systems and their role in interaction
    * norms, normative interaction, and normative multiagent systems
