CALL FOR PAPERS: Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge, 7-9 Jan 2013, Chennai , INDIA


TARK 2013

About the Conference

The mission of the TARK conferences is to bring together researchers from a wide variety of fields,
including Artificial Intelligence, Cryptography, Distributed Computing, Economics and Game Theory, 
Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology, in order to further our understanding of interdisciplinary
issues involving reasoning about rationality and knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are 
not limited to, semantic models for knowledge, belief, awareness and uncertainty, bounded 
rationality and resource-bounded reasoning, commonsense epistemic reasoning, epistemic logic, 
epistemic game theory, knowledge and action, applications of reasoning about knowledge and other 
mental states, belief revision, and foundations of multi-agent systems.

Submissions are now invited to TARK 2013. Extended Abstracts can be submitted here:

Strong preference will be given to papers whose topic is of interest to an interdisciplinary 
audience, and papers should be accessible to such an audience. Papers will be held to the usual 
high standards of research publications. In particular, they should 1) contain enough information 
to enable the program committee to identify the main contribution of the work; 2) explain the 
significance of the work -- its novelty and its practical or theoretical implications; and 3) 
include comparisons with and references to relevant literature.

Abstracts should be no longer than ten double-spaced pages (4,000 words). Optional technical 
details such as proofs may be included in an appendix. An email address of the contact author 
should be included. Papers arriving late or departing significantly from these guidelines risk 
immediate rejection.  One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present the paper at 
the conference.

Economists should be aware that special arrangements have been made with certain economics journals
(in particular, with International Journal of Game Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal 
of Economic Theory, and Mathematical Social Sciences, so that publication of an extended abstract 
in TARK will not prejudice publication of a full journal version.

TARK 2013 will precede the Indian Conference on Logics and Applications (ICLA) held from January 
10 - 12, 2013, also at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Chennai, India.

TARK 2013 is the 14th conference of the TARK conference series.
Previous conferences have been held bi-annually around the world. The most recent conference was 
held 2011 at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, see http://www.philos.rug.nl/TARK2011/. The 
proceedings of all previous TARK conferences can be accessed here http://www.tark.org/.

TARK 2013 is the first TARK conference to be held in India. It is also the first TARK conference 
to be held in January.
