  • 24-26 November 2014, Workshop on Correlated Information Change

    Location: Doelenzaal, University Library, Singel 425, Amsterdam
    Costs: none (registration necessary!!)

    Via this workshop, we are creating a forum to present new developments, exchange ideas, explore and establish new connections between different areas that have already developed techniques to model correlated information change in a multi-agent context. The types of correlated information change that we are interested in, covers a list of phenomena studied in a number of areas such as: Game Theory, Logic, Belief Revision Theory, Formal Epistemology, Social Science, Formal Learning Theory, AI (Multi-agent Systems) and the Foundations of Quantum Physics.
