5-7 September 2007, Combining Probability and Logic (PROGIC07), Canterbury, UK

Date: 5-7 September 2007
Location: Canterbury, UK
Deadline: 1 May 2007

There are a plethora of views as to the relationship between probability and logic and a panoply of proposals for combining the two. In particular, probabilistic logics offer formal combinations of probability and logic - often, however, at the expense of perspicuity and tractability. The question arises as to whether probabilistic networks might be used to render probabilistic logics more comprehensible and computationally feasible. In this workshop we aim to bring researchers from a variety of disciplines together to assess the prospects of applying probabilistic networks to probabilistic logics, and more generally to elucidate the relationship between probability and logic.

We welcome submissions of papers on the special focus of the workshop, Probabilistic Logic and Probabilistic Networks, or indeed on any aspect of combining probability and logic. Submission deadline is 1st May 2007.
