CFP: Workshop Logic, Rationality and Interaction


Workshop Logic, Rationality and Interaction, 5-9 August, 2007.
Beijing, China.

*About the Workshop*

In the past decade it has become increasingly clear that studying
information, first and foremost, means studying information exchange. This acknowledgement of the inherently social character of information shows up at many places in modern logical theories. More generally, information exchange is a form of interaction where agents act together in strategic ways. This new perspective has led to contacts between logic and game theory, bringing a new set of disciplines into the scope of logic: viz., economics, and the social sciences. New interfaces are arising, such as epistemic studies of rational behavior in games. Another interesting development in this area is the rise of the notion of 'social software', the idea of using computational techniques for analyzing patterns of social behavior. And finally, interaction is also   crucial to intelligent behavior in the field of natural language. Here pragmatics, the study of the actual use of language between different agents, has become the primary focus of research. Notions from game theory, in particular evolutionary games, are being used to-day to answer all kinds of pragmatic issues, for instance, how linguistic conventions can arise.  This workshop aims to bring together researchers working on these and related topics in logic, philosophy, computer science, and related areas in order to arrive at an integrated perspective on knowledge acquisition, information exchange, and rational action.

*Call for papers*

Researchers from various fields, including artificial intelligence, game
theory, linguistics, logic, philosophy, and cognitive science are invited to submit a paper to this workshop which aims to arrive at an
interdisciplinary perspective on knowledge acquisition, information
exchange, and rational action. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to

     a. semantic models for knowledge, for belief, and for uncertainty
     b. dynamic logics of knowledge, information flow, and action
     c. logical analysis of the structure of games
     d. belief revision, belief merging
     e. logics for preferences and utilities
     f. logics of probability and uncertainty

All researchers in the area are invited to submit a paper of 12 pages.
Each paper should include a title, the names and contact details of all
authors, and a short abstract of 100-300 words. Talks will be 45 minutes
long, including 10 - 15 minutes for discussion. The detailed submission
procedure will be specified soon. A selection of the accepted papers will be published in a special issue of 'Knowledge, Rationality and Action'.

*Important Dates*

     a.  Paper submission deadline: 15 April 2007
     b.  Notification of authors: 7 May 2007
     c.  Camera-ready copies due: 1 June 2007
