Special Issue on:

FORMAL MODELS OF NORM CHANGE

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Formal models of norm change have been drawing attention since the
seminal work of Alchourrn and Bulygin on normative systems, and that
of Alchourrn, Grdenfors and Makinson on the logic of theory change.
Research trends in Artificial Intelligence have recently revived this
attention emphasizing the importance of a formal analysis of the type
(s) of dynamics involved in systems of norms, and norm change has
become the topic of a dedicated international workshop: http://
www.cs.uu.nl/events/normchange2/index.html

This special issue aims at providing an up to date account of this
recent and lively research area at the interface of logic,
philosophy, computer science and legal theory.

We invite submissions on any topic in the following, not exclusive,
list:

  * Dynamic logic approaches to norm change
  * AGM-like approaches to norm change
  * Deontic logic and the dynamics of informational attitudes
  * Deontic logic and game theory
  * Formal analysis of legal procedures
  * Norm change in legal theory
  * Norm change and multi-agent systems
