CfP special issue Synthese: Logic and Social Interaction

Synthese KRA volume on Logic and Social Interaction
        Call for Submissions for Special Issue

There is now a growing body of research on formal algorithmic models of social procedures and interactions between rational agents. These models attempt to identify logical elements within our day-to-day social activities.

Largely using the language of logic and game theory, these studies have led to new insights into the dynamics of observation, updating of knowledge and belief, preference change, dialogues and processes of strategic interaction. Central to many of these studies is a multi-agent perspective on rational agency that situates inference in an interactive context.

In this context, a workshop on Logic and Social Interaction

was held in the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai during 7-8 January, 2009, focussing on current advances made towards modelling complex multi-agent interactive situations, attempting to identify logical elements in our daily social activities.

As a follow-up of the Workshop, a special issue of the "Knowledge, Rationality and Action" section of the journal "Synthese" is planned on the theme of Logic and Social Interaction. Please see the Special Issue page for details.

Potential authors who are interested to submit to this volume are requested to send a mail to one of the Guest Editors, by May 1, 2009, mentioning their intention, with a title and an abstract of one paragraph.

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2009
Acceptance Decision: January 1, 2010
Final Manuscript: March 1, 2010
Publication Date (tentative): September 2010
