  • 3-4 November 2014, Amsterdam Workshop on Set Theory: Generalized Baire Space (AST 2014), Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    The Amsterdam Set Theory Workshop 2014 is organized by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) and the logic group of the University of Hamburg with the aim to provide the platform for exchange for the researchers active in the field of the set theory of the generalized Baire space. The two days of the workshop will consist of three tutorials, several contributed talks and discussion sessions. One of the outputs of this meeting is a planned paper consisting of the open problems in the generalized Baire space.

  • 20-21 November 2014, Synthese Conference on Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Formal Epistemology

    Location: The 'Nina van Leerzaal', The Allard Pierson Museum, Oude Turfmarkt 127, Amsterdam
    Costs: none (registration necessary!!)

    The goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers using formal methods in epistemology, methods ranging from logic to probability theory. We create a forum to present new developments, exchange ideas, explore and establish new connections between the use of qualitative and quantitative methods in formal philosophy.

  • 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.
