  • 20 - 23 June 2017, European Conference on Argumentation (ECA 2017), Fribourg, Switzerland

    Date: 20 - 23 June 2017
    Location: Fribourg, Switzerland

    The field of argumentation has been expanding over the last decade with a clear opening towards cognitive psychology (and cognitive science more generally) and the processes it accounts for. With the development of cognitive science as an encompassing framework within which both psychological and social aspects of human behaviour can be accounted for, we believe that the time is ripe to ground a discussion in the community of argumentation studies around the notion of inference, along its formal, social and cognitive dimensions. The overarching questions the conference theme will be concerned with are therefore the following: How does the study of argumentation connect with the notion of inference and how, as a discipline, does it connect with the disciplines involved in the study of the cognitive features of inference?

    To foster this discussion, the conference accordingly seeks to attract scholars in argumentation coming from a range of different traditions, including (but not limited to) philosophy, psychology, linguistics, informal logic, speech communication, pragma-dialectics, epistemic approaches, rhetoric, dialectics, logic, and computational approaches.

    In addition to welcoming submissions linked to argumentation studies in general, each ECA edition has a special theme. While the 1st edition of ECA was devoted to exploring the relationship between argumentation and the decisions that follow from it, the 2017 Fribourg edition will focus on the cognitive processes involved in argumentation, with a clear focus on what happens ‘upstream’ in the argumentative chain, both in production and reception. The 2nd edition of ECA will thus focus on inference as one of the key features of the argumentative process. The abstract submission deadline is 1st of October 2016.

  • 21 - 23 June 2017, 14th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence (DCAI'17), Porto, Portugal

    Date: 21 - 23 June 2017
    Location: Porto, Portugal

    The 14th International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence 2017 is an annual forum that will bring together ideas, projects, lessons, etc. associated with distributed computing and artificial intelligence, and their application in different areas.

    Research on Intelligent Distributed Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications are now deployed. Applying artificial intelligence in distributed environments is becoming an element of high added value and economic potential. These technologies are changing constantly as a result of the large research and technical effort being undertaken in both universities and businesses. The exchange of ideas between scientists and technicians from both academic and business areas is essential to facilitate the development of systems that meet the demands of today's society. The technology transfer in this field is still a challenge and for that reason this type of contributions will be specially considered in this symposium.

    DCAI welcomes the submission of application papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. In addition to the main track, there will also be Special Sessions on AI–driven methods for Multimodal Networks and Processes Modeling, on Decision Economics, on Intelligent and Secure Management towards Smart Buildings and Smart Grids, and on Logic, Information, Language, Memory, Reasoning, as well as a  Doctoral Consortium where students can present their on going research work.

  • 6 - 8 July 2017, 2017 Annual Conference of the Australasian Association for Logic (AAL 2017), Adelaide, Australia

    Date: 6 - 8 July 2017
    Location: Adelaide, Australia
    Deadline: Friday 30 June 2017

    The conference will be held in conjunction with the annual conference of the Australasian Association of Philosophy, and overlap by one day, Thu 6 July.

    Submissions of papers are now called. Papers can be on any topic in logic. Authors should aim for a time of 45 minutes including discussion.

  • 4 September 2017, Workshop on Recent Advances in Concurrency & Logic (RADICAL 2017), Berlin, Germany

    Date: Monday 4 September 2017
    Location: Berlin, Germany
    Deadline: Friday 30 June 2017

    RADICAL is a new workshop aligned within the intersection between concurrency and logic, broadly construed.

    Recently, the interplay of concurrency and logic with areas/applications has received much attention, as witnessed by recent CONCUR editions. These areas/applications have become increasingly consolidated, and start to have profound impact in neighbouring communities. As an unfortunate side effect, however, the important unifying role that concurrency plays in all of them seems hard to find in a single scientific event.  RADICAL intends to fill a gap between CONCUR researchers that now also typically publish and interact in other different venues; it also aims at attracting researchers from neighbouring communities whose work naturally intersects with CONCUR.

    Since we would like to recover the informal character of scientific workshops, rather than regular paper submissions, we invite submissions describing talk proposals on the intersection of logic and concurrency. Submissions based on already published works should include explicit references/links as appropriate. It is understood that for each accepted submission one of the co-authors will attend the workshop and give the talk.

  • 11 - 15 September 2017, 19th OeMG Congress and Annual DMV Meeting, Section Algebra, Logic & Set Theory, Salzburg, Austria

  • 25 - 29 September 2017, 6th Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief (DKB-2017) and 5th Workshop KI & Kognition (KIK-2017), Dortmund, Germany

    Date: 25 - 29 September 2017
    Location: Dortmund, Germany
    Deadline: Saturday 1 July 2017

    Knowledge representation offers a rich palette of methods for uncertain reasoning both to describe human reasoning and to model AI approaches. Its many facets like qualitative vs. quantitative reasoning, defeasible and analogical reasoning, argumentation and negotiation in multi-agent systems, causal reasoning for action and planning, as well as nonmonotonicity and belief revision, among many others, have become very active fields of research. Beyond computational aspects, these methods aim to reflect the rich variety of human reasoning in uncertain and dynamic environments.

    The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and to present novel approaches to uncertain reasoning and belief change in their broad senses, and in particular provide a forum for research work linking different paradigms of reasoning.

    We welcome papers on any of the workshop topics. We put a special focus on papers from both fields that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of knowledge representation and cognitive models of reasoning, addressing formal as well as experimental or heuristic issues.

  • 19 September 2017, Workshop on Language, Ontology, Terminology and Knowledge Structures (LOTKS - 2017) , Montpellier, France

    Date: Tuesday 19 September 2017
    Location: Montpellier, France
    Deadline: Monday 10 July 2017

    This workshop, held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS), will bring together two closely related strands of research. On the one hand it will look at the overlap between ontologies and computational linguistics; and on the other the relationship between knowledge modelling and terminologies -- as well as the many points of intersection between these two topics. This workshop aims to create a forum for open discussion that will help to highlight the common areas of interest in the different fields concerned, as well as fostering dialogue between the various different approaches taken by each discipline.


    This workshop welcomes contributions from researchers in fields such as linguistics, terminologies, and knowledge engineering, whose work fits in with our topics of interest as well as interested industry professionals. We invite proposals in the form of abstracts of up to 6 pages (up to 4 pages of text +2 pages for references) for short papers, or up to 8 pages (up to 6 pages of text+ 2 pages for references) for long papers. We particularly welcome approaches with a cross-language, cross-domain and/or cross-interdisciplinary scope.

  • 21 September 2017, 1st International Workshop on Epistemology in Ontologies (EPINON 2017)

    Date: Thursday 21 September 2017
    Location: Bozen-Bolzano (Italy)
    Target audience: Philosophers, Logicians, Computer Scientists, Ontologists
    Deadline: Monday 17 July 2017

    Formal ontologies and knowledge representation mainly focus on characterising how a given domain is structured, i.e., they identify a set of concepts, entities, and relations together with the constraints that hold for this domain. The structure of the characterisation is usually intended to reflect the point of view of significant experts or a realist view of how things about a particular domain are. The aim of this workshop is to explore an epistemological stance in formal ontology and knowledge representation and focus on the assessment of the modelling provided by the ontology designer.

    This workshop is part of The Joint Ontology Workshops, Episode III, JOWO 2017.

    We aim to address to an interdisciplinary audience, by inviting scholars in philosophy, computer science, logic, conceptual modelling, knowledge representation, and cognitive science to contribute to the discussion on the Epistemological Foundation of Ontologies and/or the Ontological Foundation of Epistemology. We welcome two types of submissions: Research articles for presenting original unpublished work, and Extended abstracts for presenting brief descriptions of ongoing research and projects, preliminary approaches, or descriptions of related previously published research.

  • 21 - 23 September 2017, First Workshop on Interaction-Based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS 2017), Bolzano, Italy

    Date: 21 - 23 September 2017
    Location: Bolzano, Italy
    Deadline: Monday 17 July 2017

    This first Workshop on Interaction-Based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS) collocated with the third Joint Ontology Workshop is fully dedicated to challenges and solutions to knowledge sharing in interaction-based environments, ranging from the Internet of Things to multi-agent systems. Gradually expanding, distributed systems heighten the need of a dynamic interactive knowledge sharing process, while at the same time an increasing heterogeneity of resources renders this process more complex. As a highly interdisciplinary workshop, discussions will center on requirements and suggestions to endow computational models with knowledge sharing capabilities in interactive scenarios.

    SUBMISSIONS Submissions need to present original research and contain an abstract of no more than 300 words. Both full papers (mature research work describing original research and its validation) and short papers (research papers describing interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field) are sollicited.

     - Ontological grounding of knowledge sharing and interactions
     - Interaction-Based Reasoning
     - Interaction-Based Knowledge Resources Engineering
     - Knowledge Sharing in Interaction-based Applications

  • CfP special issue of "Philosophies" on logic, inference, probability, and paradox

    Deadline: Thursday 20 July 2017

    Reasoning with uncertain knowledge is a growing area of interest, involving several tendencies, such as reasoning with non-standard theories of probability (e.g., theories of probability based on non-classical logics) and combining argumentation systems with probabilities or probabilistic semantics. All such tendencies and areas of investigation are naturally generalized to possibility systems and other credal calculi. This poses new and intriguing questions on the philosophy of probability and credal calculi in general, amplifying the discussions around the correct formal theories of probability and on the interpretations of probability, among the classical, logical, frequentist, propensity, and subjectivist (and possibly others). Dilemmas and paradoxes in probabilities and credal calculi are also a relevant area of research.

    This Special Issue intends to contribute to the state-of-the-art of such research topics by gathering together the contribution of authors in interconnected areas including logical, mathematical and conceptual aspects. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guest Editors: Julio Stern Walter Carnielli Juliana Bueno-Soler.

    All papers are invited in the following (non-exclusive) topics:
    -interpretations of probability, possibility and other credal calculi
    -philosophy of probability, possibility and other credal calculi
    -probabilistic and possibilistic argumentation and inference
    -probability, possibility and uncertain reasoning
    -paradoxes in probability, possibility and other credal calculi

  • 4 - 8 December 2017, Non-classical Modal and Predicate Logics:The 9th International Workshop on Logic and Cognition (WOLC2017), Guangzhou, China

    Date: 4 - 8 December 2017
    Location: Guangzhou, China
    Deadline: Friday 1 September 2017

    Modalities and predicates have since ancient times been central notions of logic. In the 20th century, various systems of non-classical logics emerged, with applications mainly in Computer Science, but also in many other disciplines such as Linguistics, Mathematics, and Philosophy. Both the theoretical studies and the needs of applications gave rise to the questions of non-classical treatment of quantification and modalities and their accommodation in these non-classical logics. In response, various modal and predicate variants of non-classical logics have been introduced and studied in the past decades.

    Although there are many good conferences on (mainly propositional) non-classical logics, this conference is one solely dedicated to modal and predicate non-classical logics. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers in both pure and applied aspects of various branches of non-classical logics, not only to present recent advances in their particular fields, but mainly foster the exchange of ideas between researchers focusing on (1) separate branches of non-classical logic and (2) foundational and applied issues.

    We invite submissions on both (a) theoretical topics from all branches of mathematical logic (e.g., proof-theory, model theory, game theory, computational complexity, etc.), as well as (b) their applications in various areas (including computer science, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, etc.). Strong papers on propositional logics can also be accepted, provided they relate to the themes in the main scope of the conference (e.g., the study of completions in algebraic semantics, propositional quantification, etc.).

  • 23 - 29 June 2018, 8th North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (NASSLLI 2018), Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.

    Date: 23 - 29 June 2018
    Location: Pittsburgh PA, U.S.A.
    Deadline: Saturday 30 September 2017

    The summer school is aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the fields of Linguistics, Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Logic, Philosophy, and other related areas. NASSLLI brings these disciplines together with the goal of producing excellence in the study of how minds and machines represent, communicate, manipulate and reason with information. NASSLLI provides a venue where students and researchers from one discipline can learn approaches, frameworks and tools from related disciplines to apply to their own work. Courses offered at NASSLLI range from intensive, graduate level introductory courses to inter-disciplinary workshops featuring prominent researchers presenting their work in progress.

    NASSLLI 2018 will consist of a series of courses and workshops, most running daily from Monday June 25 - Friday June 29. In addition, there will be intensive training in a small set of foundational topics the weekend prior to the start of courses (Saturday June 23 - Sunday June 24). Students will have the opportunity to present work at student sessions throughout the event; the call for student submissions will be circulated in early 2018.

    We invite proposals for courses and workshops that address topics of relevance to NASSLLI's central goal. We particularly encourage submissions which illustrate cross-disciplinary approaches, especially courses showing the applicability of computational methods to theoretical work, and the use of theoretical work in practical applications. Courses involving a hands-on component (e.g. actual experience with NLP tools, coding, or machine learning algorithms) will be very welcome. We also welcome proposals from researchers and practitioners working on relevant areas in the technology industries. Courses and workshops should aim to be accessible to an interdisciplinary, graduate level audience.

  • 19 - 23 June 2017, Workshop "Context in the explanation and evaluation of human reasoning", Paris, France

    Date: 19 - 23 June 2017
    Location: Paris, France

    It is well known that human beings do not always reason correctly. There are various kinds of fallacies and biases with which we meet in ordinary life, and reasoning problems to which most people give wrong answers in experimental situations. While context has by now been recognized as playing a fundamental role in the philosophy of language as well as in other philosophical fields, its role in the debate about human rationality has not yet been explored systematically. The workshop intends to examine what is the role of context in various approaches to the explanation and the evaluation of reasoning, but also, more generally and ambitiously, whether and how the use of context in the explanation and the evaluation of reasoning can be made more systematic and effective (even to the aim of solving, or dissolving, the traditional puzzles of the rationality debate).

    This workshop is part of the 10th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context (Context-17). Workshop organizers: Marina Sbisà and Paolo Labinaz (University of Trieste).

  • 26 - 27 June 2017, Discourse Expectations: Theoretical, Experimental and Computational Perspectives (Detec2017), Nijmegen, The Netherlands

    Date: 26 - 27 June 2017
    Location: Nijmegen, The Netherlands

    Studies on discourse processing indicate that natural language interpretation is expectation-driven. Even though it is uncontroversial that both linguistic (e.g. lexical items, morpho-syntactic constructions, prosody) and extra-linguistic factors (e.g. world knowledge, speaker/hearer knowledge) are used to anticipate how discourse is likely to continue, the nature of their interplay is a topic of ongoing research. DETEC approaches this topic in an interdisciplinary fashion by comparing theoretical, experimental, and computational perspectives.

  • 29 June - 1 July 2017, The structure of modal & semantic reasoning, Muenchen, Germany

    Date: 29 June - 1 July 2017
    Location: Muenchen, Germany

    In the last 50 years, the success of possible worlds semantics for intensional logics has determined a discrepancy between techniques, aims and themes employed in the study of modal notions (broadly conceived as to include propositional attitudes, probability, validity) and in the study of truth. If the former endeavour focuses more on analyzing the logical space given by possible worlds semantics -- leaving aside problems and limitations that full self-reference and quantification may provide -- as a model for understanding modal concepts, the philosophical and logical mainstream in the study of truth is still deeply concerned with paradox and the self-referential aspects of sufficiently expressive languages containing a truth predicate.

    The conference aims at bringing together researchers working on the interaction between these two traditions with a particular emphasis on expressive frameworks that treat truth and modalities as interacting predicates.

  • 3 - 5 July 2017, Conference on Mereology and Identity, Pisa, Italy

    Date: 3 - 5 July 2017
    Location: Pisa, Italy

    The contemporary debate on mereology is largely hinged on the notion of identity. Indeed, classical mereology dictates that complex entities are identical if and only if they have the same proper parts. On the other hand, many scholars who doubt the adequacy of classical mereology point to real or fictional cases in which different wholes would have the same proper parts.  The upholders of Composition as Identity think that identity, or a relation analogous to identity, also connects a whole with its parts. By contrast, the opponents of Composition as Identity retort that composition fails to respect some pivotal principles that holds for standard identity, such as the Indiscerniblity of Identicals, coreferentiality  or transitivity. Finally, in the debate about Composition as Identity, the so-called Sider-Yi Collapse seems to show that some roles sometimes attributed to identity are incompatible with the standard characterization of plural identity.

    The conference will host the main scholars involved in this debate, with the purpose of encouraging innovative solutions to various open problems.

    The Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (Italy) and the University of Padua (Italy) have the pleasure to offer 6 bursaries (including a single room in Pisa, one social dinner and meals at the university restaurant for the duration of the conference) to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who are willing to be actively involved in the conference. The selected participants ARE NOT expected to deliver a presentation, but to attend the lectures of the invited speakers and raise objections and questions. Travel expenses will not be reimbursed.

  • 17 - 28 July 2017, 7th Workshop on Intuitionistic Modal Logic and Applications (IMLA 2017), Toulouse, France

    Date: 17 - 28 July 2017
    Location: Toulouse, France

    Constructive modal logics and type theories are of increasing foundational and practical relevance in computer science. Applications of constructive modal logics in type disciplines for programming languages, meta-logics for reasoning about a variety of computational phenomena and explanatory frameworks in philosophical logic are everywhere.

    The workshop aims at developing and explaining theoretical and methodological issues around the question of how the proof-theoretic strengths of constructive logics can best be combined with the model-theoretic strengths of modal logics. Practical issues center around the question of which modal connectives with associated laws or proof rules capture computational phenomena accurately and at the right level of abstraction.

    In its seventh edition, the Workshop on Intuitionistic Modal Logic and Applications will take place in Toulouse France, in conjunction with the 29th ESSLLI.

  • 17 - 21 July 2017, Formal approaches to the dynamics of linguistic interaction, Toulouse, France

    Date: 17 - 21 July 2017
    Location: Toulouse, France

    It is uncontentious that natural language use involves interaction; between participants in a dialogue, between modalities such as vision, gesture and speech, and between new and existing information in language acquisition, for example. For this ESSLLI 2017 workshop we maintain a broad notion of interaction, roughly the production and exchange of information between agents of some sort, be they natural or artificial (e.g. avatars or modelling devices as in certain types of logics). We favour contributions which focus on the dynamics of the information exchange and discuss formal models to reconstruct it.

  • 17 - 21 July 2017, ESSLLI-2017 workshop on Quantifiers and Determiners (QUAD), Toulouse, France

    Date: 17 - 21 July 2017
    Location: Toulouse, France

    This workshop aims at gathering mathematicians, logicians, linguists, computer scientists to present their latest advances in the study of quantification.

    There is a long history of quantification in the Ancient and Medieval times at the border between logic and philosophy of language, before the proper formalisation of quantification by Frege. But many mathematical and linguistic questions remain open, both on the mathematical side (such as the proof theory of generalised quantifiers or the computational aspects of alternate formulations such as Russel's ioata), and the linguistic side (such as the relation between the syntactic structure and its semantic interpretation, or the relationship between quantification and phenomena like generics, plurals, and mass nouns), as well as the intersection of the two sides (for instance, psycholinguistic experiments that connect formal models and their computational properties to the actual way human do process sentences with quantifiers).

    All those aspects are connected in the didactics of mathematics and computer science: there are specific difficulties to teach (and to learn) how to understand, manipulate, produce and prove quantified statements, and to determine the proper level of formalisation between bare logical formulas and written or spoken natural language.

  • 23-29 July 2017, Symposium on History and Philosophy of Computing (HaPoC symposium @ICHST), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    Date: 23-29 July 2017
    Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    We are happy to announce that the Commission for the History and Philosophy of Computing will submit a proposal for the organization of the DHST/DLMPS HaPoC symposium titled 'The Ubiquity of Computing: historical and philosophical issues'.

    The history of information and communication technologies (ICTs), despite its approximately 70 years, has already shown a rich accumulated experience coming from the most diversified initiatives, efforts and pioneering projects. Fully incorporated into reality, to the point of being considered ubiquitous, ICTs can be considered mature enough to bring about a balance that seeks to account for its past and its origins. A more extensive study of their history surely contributes to establish a valuable research field and to consolidate an international community of historians and philosophers of ICTs, discussing and framing propositions that can help to inspire and produce future developments.

  • 23 - 29 July 2017, Symposium "The interface between the study of cultural diversity in science and decision-making in science policy", Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    Date: 23 - 29 July 2017
    Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    The International Association for Science and Cultural Diversity (IASCUD) is hosting a symposium titled "The interface between the study of cultural diversity in science and decision-making in science policy" at the 25th International Congress of History of Science and Technology to be held in Rio de Janeiro, 23-29 July 2017.

    In this symposium, we wish to explore the actual and potential connections between researchers who study the cultural variety of science from historical, sociological, and philosophical perspectives and the deciders and stakeholders in both local and global science policy: Are policy makers informed about the effects of scientific cultural diversity? If so, how does this affect their decisions? If not, what can researchers of cultural diversity in science do in order to connect to the decision makers?

  • 26 - 27 July 2017, 5th International Workshop on Strategic Reasoning (SR 2017), Liverpool, England

    Date: 26 - 27 July 2017
    Location: Liverpool, England

    Strategic reasoning is one of the most active research areas in the multi-agent system domain. The literature in this field is extensive and provides a plethora of logics for modelling strategic ability. Theoretical results are now being used in many exciting domains, including software tools for information system security, robot teams with sophisticated adaptive strategies, and automatic players capable of beating expert human adversaries, just to cite a few. All these examples share the challenge of developing novel theories and tools for agent-based reasoning that take into account the likely behaviour of adversaries. The international workshop on strategic reasoning aims to bring together researchers working on different aspects of strategic reasoning in computer science, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view.

    SR 2017 will be co-located with TARK 2017, which will be held in Liverpool on July 24-26, 2017.

  • 30 July - 5 August 2017, Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students 2017, Munich, Germany

    Date: 30 July - 5 August 2017
    Location: Munich, Germany

    The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the fourth Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students. Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school is aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems.

    This year the focus of the summer school will be to provide a framework for developing expertise in formal approaches used in (1) philosophy of language, (2) philosophy of logic, and (3) philosophy of mathematics. The summer school will offer the opportunity for study in an informal setting, for lively debate, and for the development of a network with students and professors interested in the application of formal methods in philosophy. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

    The deadline for applications is *March 5, 2017.

  • 16 - 19 August 2017, Workshop on Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2017 (LACompLing2017), Stockholm, Sweden

    Date: 16 - 19 August 2017
    Location: Stockholm, Sweden

    Computational linguistics studies natural language in its various manifestations from a computational point of view, both on the theoretical level (modeling grammar modules dealing with natural language form and meaning, and the relation between these two) and on the practical level (developing applications for language and speech technology). Right from the start in the 1950ties, there have been strong links with computer science and logic - one can think of Chomsky's contributions to the theory of formal languages and automata, or Lambek's logical modeling of natural language syntax. The workshop assesses the place of computer science logic in present day computational linguistics.

    The workshop focuses on logical approaches to the computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics. . It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress. LACompLing 2017 is affiliated with the 26th Annual EACSL Conference on Computer Science Logic CSL'2017, and co-located with: Logic in Stockholm 2017.

  • 19 - 25 August 2017, Twenty-sixth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-17), Melbourne, Australia

    Date: 19 - 25 August 2017
    Location: Melbourne, Australia

    For nearly a half-century, IJCAI has remained the premier conference bringing together the international AI community in communicating the advances and celebrating the achievements of artificial intelligence research and practice. With the current explosive interest in AI and its applications, this 26th edition of the conference is guaranteed to provide an exciting forum to present and hear about cutting-edge research in AI.

    A special theme of IJCAI-17 is Autonomy. Recent developments in the adoption of artificial intelligence and other technologies across many different areas of endeavour have brought new challenges or have made real those that until now had been largely abstract and theoretical. In recognition of this trend, and in support of addressing some of these challenges, this Special Track seeks to foster discussion and debate around the issues brought forward by this new generation of technologies and applications.

    The scientific program of IJCAI 2017 will also contain Workshops, Tutorials, Demonstrations, Robotic Exhibitions, a Doctoral consortium, and will host different software, video, and robotics competitions.

  • 19 - 25 August 2017, The 9th International Workshop on Modelling and Reasoning in Context (MRC 2017), Melbourne, Australia

    Date: 19 - 25 August 2017
    Location: Melbourne, Australia

    MRC is an interdisciplinary workshop with a focus on applications within computer science. Because of this focus the workshop primarily attracts participants from within the computer science community and specifically within artificial intelligence. However, MRC has always had a strong interdisciplinary appeal and does draw from fields such as linguistics, semiotics, philosophy, mathematics, cognitive science, social sciences and psychology as well as various sub-fields within computer science.

    By considering modelling and reasoning approaches for contextualised systems from a broad range of areas, the workshop will facilitate the sharing of problems, techniques, and solutions. The workshop covers different understandings of what context is, different approaches to modelling context, mechanisms and techniques for (structured) storage of contextual information, effective ways to retrieve it, and methods for enabling integration of context and application knowledge.

    The workshop will last one full day and will have three main types of interaction: short presentations of accepted papers, panel discussion sessions, and an open, but guided discussion summarising the most important lessons learned.

    Date: 21 - 23 August 2017
    Location: Natal, Brazil

    The third edition of the FILOMENA Workshop (FIlosofia, LOgica e MEtafísica aNAlítica), promoted by the Group for Logic and Formal Philosophy from the UFRN, has the purpose of gathering logicians working at the intersection of Logic and Metaphysics, through the application of formal methods in Philosophy. Logic, a branch of Philosophy on its own, has outgrown its original purposes and found connections with other areas of Philosophy, such as Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind. Logic has proved to be a powerful tool for analyzing different philosophical theories, as well as their foundations and implications; moreover, the birth and development of non-classical logics has expanded its domain of application much beyond the dreams of its progenitors.

    Invited Speakers: Tuomas Tahko (University of Helsinki), Jonas Arenhart (Federal University of Santa Catarina) and Giorgio Venturi (State University of Campinas).

  • 25 - 29 September 2017, 11th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2017), Brasilia, Brazil

    Date: 25 - 29 September 2017
    Location: Brasilia, Brazil

    In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation, program development and verification, artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference systems for selected tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized systems must be combined with each other and integrated into general purpose systems. This has led - in many research areas - to the development of techniques and methods for the combination and integration of dedicated formal systems, as well as for their modularization and analysis.

    The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS) traditionally focusses on these types of research questions and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2017 seeks to offer a common forum for research in the general area of combination, modularization, and integration of systems, with emphasis on logic-based ones, and of their practical use.

    FroCoS 2017 will be co-located with the 26th International Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods (TABLEAUX 2017) and the 8th International Conference on Interactive Theorem-­Proving (ITP 2017).

  • 25 - 29 September 2017, Summer School on computer simulation methods, Stuttgart, Germany

    Date: 25 - 29 September 2017
    Location: Stuttgart, Germany

    The transformation of science through computer simulation is often considered to be a methodological one. A lot of literature has been dedicated to determining the relationship between computer simulation, experiments or theories as the classical sources of knowledge. This relation is both methodologically and technically complex. On the one hand, it is difficult for philosophers, social scientists, and historians to gain detailed insight into the methods used among practitioners. On the other hand, for computer scientists and practitioners in general, the methodological limitations and design constraints that simulation techniques impose on hypothesis formulation and testing may not be obvious. The summer school addresses these problems by offering lectures and tutorials on computer simulation methods for scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and computer science.

    The morning sessions will include lectures by faculty members, focusing on the philosophical, methodological, and technical aspects of different simulation techniques (including numerical methods, software techniques, visualization, agent-based modelling, and computational experiments). These will be followed by project presentations by participants. The afternoons will be dedicated to hands-on tutorials by practitioners. Finally, in the evenings, distinguished scholars will offer lectures on the most inspiring and exciting issues in this increasingly important research area.

  • 23 - 27 October 2017, Fourth International Meeting of the Association for Philosophy of Mathematical Practice (APMP IV), Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

    Date: 23 - 27 October 2017
    Location: Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

    Over the last few years approaches to the philosophy of mathematics that focus on mathematical practice have been thriving. Such approaches include the study of a wide variety of issues concerned with the way mathematics is done, evaluated, and applied, and in addition, or in connection therewith, with historical episodes or traditions, applications, educational problems, cognitive questions, etc. In 2009, a group of researchers in this field gathered to promote the creation of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice, APMP. This association aims to become a common forum that will stimulate research in philosophy of mathematics related to mathematical activity, past and present, and foster joint actions. The Fourth International Meeting of the Association for the Philosophy of Mathematical Practice will be held on October 23-27, 2017, in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.

  • 25 - 27 October 2017, Workshop on Linguistic Intuitions, Evidence, and Expertise, Aarhus, Denmark

    Date: 25 - 27 October 2017
    Location: Aarhus, Denmark

    At this conference we want to bring together linguists and philosophers interested in the methodological foundations of linguistics. In particular, we want to better understand whether linguistic intuitions can legitimately be used as evidence for theories of grammar. How big is the risk of bias and distortion when linguists use their own intuitions? Can the evidential value of linguistic intuitions be improved by systematically studying the intuitions of non-linguists? Or are there good reasons to prefer the judgements of expert linguists?

  • 26 - 27 October 2017, International Conference "I Think, Therefore I Teach: Evolutions in Early Modern Education", Leuven, Belgium

    Date: 26 - 27 October 2017
    Location: Leuven, Belgium

    The aim of the present conference is to enhance our understanding of the way in which evolutions on the European scene were adopted, refuted, or merely ignored in university teaching of the time. Important focal points are the paradigm shifts in the didactical methods and the curricula, e.g. from late scholasticism to humanism, from Spanish scholasticism to Cartesianism, the influence of Jansenism and Port-Royal. Geographically, the conference will focus on European teaching, and chronologically, on the period from 1500-1800, being a wildly interesting but vastly understudied time segment.

    Attention will be paid mainly to the teaching of logic and natural philosophy, since both disciplines - more so than e.g. the teaching of civil and canon law, evolved in tandem with the philosophical and scientific developments on the larger scale of European society.
