CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue on "60 years of deontic logic"
Special issue of Journal of Logic and Computation (JLC), corner on Deontic Logic and Normative Systems
With his seminal paper ``deontic logic'' published in Mind in 1951, Von Wright launched the area of deontic logic. It is the field of logic that is concerned with obligation, permission, and related concepts. We invite papers concerned with the logical study of normative reasoning, including formal systems of deontic logic, defeasible normative reasoning, the logic of action, and other related areas of logic, and the formal analysis of normative concepts and normative systems. We also invite applications of deontic logic and normative systems to, for example, the formal specification of aspects of norm-governed multi-agent systems and autonomous agents, including the representation of rights, authorisation, delegation, power, responsibility and liability, the formal specification of normative systems for the management of bureaucratic processes in public or private administration, applications of normative logic to the specification of database integrity constraints, security and privacy, and normative aspects of protocols for communication, negotiation and multi-agent decision making. Submission Details ================== Authors are invited to submit an original, previously unpublished, research paper pertaining to any of the above mentioned topics.
