Workshop Keynote
-----------------

The Formalities of Affordance

It is an obvious truth that the possibilities for action and movement are conditioned by the physical spatial environment. In the terminology of J. J. Gibson, these possibilities are defined by the "affordances" of environmental features, and the key to being a successful agent in the physical world is being able to perceive and exploit these affordances. In this talk I want to explore to what extent it is possible to characterise different types of affordance in terms of familiar spatial and temporal logics such as the RCC systems and the interval calculus, e.g., to characterise formally such notions as "container", "passageway", "entrance", and "barrier", and the types of action or movement that are afforded (or "disafforded") by environmental features having these properties.

Speaker: Antony Galton, University of Exeter, United Kingdom

We hope that you will find the workshop program interesting and would considering participating and contributing in the workshop proceedings.
