CALL FOR PAPERS: Logics for Games and Strategic Reasoning and Social Choice, 18-19 Aug 2014,Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC

Special session at CLIMA XV (Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems)

 First Call for Papers

Submission deadline: May 11, 2014
Proceedings: LNCS/LNAI volume (available at the workshop)
Post-proceedings: Journal of Logic and Computation


Strategic reasoning occurs in many multi-agent scenarios. This is
evident in theoretical approaches to MAS, as well as in practical
solutions used, for example, in computer games, IT infrastructures for
e-voting procedures, social network services, etc. We invite submissions
that address how formal logic can contribute to our understanding,
modeling and analysis of strategic behavior. Papers that investigate how
the metaphors of game and social interaction can help in constructing
and using logical formalisms are also welcome.

The list of subjects includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

- Logics for reasoning about games and strategies
- Modal logics of strategic ability
- Logical foundations of game theory, decision theory, and social choice
- Logical approaches to rationality and bounded rationality
- Solving games and verification of strategies by model checking
- Logics for social interaction and social choice
- Logics for mechanism design
- Game semantics for logics
- Games in verification of logical specifications
- Logic-based specification and verification of security in social
   choice procedures.


We encourage submission of high quality, original papers which have not
been accepted for publication nor are currently under review for another
journal or conference. Submissions should not exceed 16 pages in the
Springer LNCS format. Note that, while theoretical papers are welcome,
submissions must include at least some illustrating examples.
For templates and formatting instructions, see . Papers should be
submitted electronically via EasyChair: .


LNCS Proceedings: All the accepted papers (including special session
papers) will be published by Springer as a volume in Lecture Notes in
Computer Science, and will be available in time for the workshop.

JLC Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will
be invited to extend and re-submit their work to a special issue of
Journal of Logic and Computation.
