24 August - 6 September 2008, ICCL Summer School 2008: Computational Logic and Cognitive Science, Dresden, Germany

Date: 24 August - 6 September 2008
Location: Dresden, Germany
Costs: € 200,-

The summer academy will focus on the long-lasting controversy of the relationship between modern formal logic (including its use for automated reasoning and computation) and, on the other hand, the rationality and common sense underlying human reasoning. Traditionally, a huge gap is perceived between the symbolic representation of knowledge used in modern logic and the sub-symbolic representation considered dominant in human reasoning. Psychological experiments of the past even suggested that people often don't reason logically and, in general, that logic seems to play only a minor role in human reasoning. However, recently, new ways of explaining human reasoning seem to revive its relatedness to logic. For this reason this summer academy attempts to bring together researchers from both sides for an exchange of views.

Deadline for registration: April 1, 2008 (after April 1, registration will be possible only for as long as there are vacant places). For more information, see http://www.computational-logic.org/iccl-ss-2008/.
