Welcome and CFP

Welcome to the Workshop on

Reasoning in social context

which takes place on November 26-28, 2015 in Amsterdam.

Via this workshop, we are creating a forum to exchange ideas and explore new territory in which it is clear that logic can make a difference. We are particularly interested in the interplay between logic and the social sciences, i.e. both in studying complex social-epistemic scenarios as well as in the logical tools and techniques that can be used to model them. We approach the theme of this workhop from an interdisciplinary angle, and welcome any insights on to the topic coming from areas such as Logic, Game Theory, Belief Revision Theory, Formal Epistemology, Social Science, Cognitive Science and AI (multi-agent systems).

The focus of this workshop includes (but is not restricted to) the following topics:

  • formal representations of higher-order belief and knowledge – belief revision strategies and knowledge update rules
  • epistemic and doxastic influence
  • information flow in social networks
  • rational interaction
  • epistemic planning

Call For Papers: Participants who are interested in presenting their work at the workshop are welcome to submit a 2-page abstract by 7 November 2015 (Central European Time). Submitted abstracts have to be uploaded on the following easychair site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=logicic15
Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by 11 November 2015.

This workshop is the fourth event which follows after the workshop on “Correlated Information Change”(http://www.illc.uva.nl/LogiCIC14/) held in 2014, the workshop on “Social Dynamics of information Change”( http://www.illc.uva.nl/lgc/seminar/?p=2106) held in 2013, and the kick-off workshop on “Belief Dynamics in Social Context” (http://www.ninagierasimczuk.com/logicic/kickoff/) held in 2012.
