18 September 2007, ICS-SIKS Symposium on Artificial Normative Systems

Date: Tuesday 18 September 2007
Time: 10:00-17:00
Location: Utrecht, Universiteitsbibliotheek, Heidelberglaan 3, De Uithof

On the one hand, computer science is now aiming at the development of more and more complex and autonomous computer systems which call for forms of meta-systems with regulating and controlling functions. On the other hand, philosophical disciplines are now trying to systematically address key notions in the understanding of social agency, e.g., "norm", "intention", "obligation".

Aim of the symposium is to bring together leading researchers from computer-science and philosophy in order to exchange points of view and stimulate scientific cooperation on the issue of normative systems. Speakers include Johan van Benthem, Christiano Castelfranchi Davide Grossi John Horty and Marek Sergot

Participation is free and includes lunch and coffee and tea breaks. However, advance registration is required. Please register before September 11 by sending an email to or . For more information, see http://people.cs.uu.nl/davide/ANS/home.htm
