CF Participation: Dialogues and Games: Historical Roots and Contemporary Models

                         Dialogues and Games:
              Historical Roots and Contemporary Models
                         8-9 February 2010
                      Universite Lille 3, France

A two-day interdisciplinary workshop funded by the European Science
Foundation in the EUROCORES programme LogICCC and the project Savoirs
Textes Langage at Universite Lille 3; and part of the collaboration
project DDAHL funded by the Frans-Nederlandse Academie, focusing on
historical and modern aspects of games and dialogues in logic.

Studies in the history of logic have shown that the medieval traditions,
both in western Europe and in India, have many distinctive dialogical
and epistemological characteristics. As a result, they have much more in
common with each other than they do mathematical logic of the 1950's.
Recently, it has become apparent that these shared characteristics can
be fruitfully modeled in the context of modern developments in logic,
which are dynamic and dialogical in flavor. We believe that
investigating the common properties of these two historical approaches
can advance our understanding of these philosophical and historical
traditions with the help of recent technical advances in dialogical and
game semantics and dialogue games. The purpose of this workshop is to
bring together researchers from both the philosophical and technical
traditions to provide a spring-board for collaboration and potential
cross-discipline applications, allowing people working in both
historical traditions, the Western and the Indian, to gain knowledge of
current modeling techniques and those on the technical side access to
new problems and theories to model.

The four fields that we intend to represent are: the dialogical
tradition in Indian logic, obligationes in medieval Western logic,
dialogical semantics and dialogue models, and games for dialogues and

8-9 February 2010, Maison de la Recherche, Universite Lille 3, France.

There is no registration fee, but if you are planning to attend, please
email Sara so that we have an idea of how many people to expect, for
planning the coffee breaks, etc.

Additionally, as this workshop is a LogICCC networking event, and one
of the main purposes of these events is to bring together researchers
from different LogICCC CRPs, we are offering four travel grants (up to a
maximum of EUR 365) for researchers affiliated to one of the eight
LogICCC CRPs to attend this meeting. If you are interested, please send
your application for travel funding to before 8
January 2010. In the application, please state your contact information,
your LogICCC affiliation (you have to be an officially registered
researcher of one of the partners in one of the eight LogICCC projects),
and a brief statement (5-10 lines) why you are interested in attending
the workshop.
