17-19 September 2009, 4th Workshop on Combining Probability and Logic (Progic 2009), Groningen

Date: 17-19 September 2009
Location: Groningen
Deadline: 1 June 2009

Logic and probability theory are often studied in conjunction to decision making, and for good reason: we want our reasoning to be rational because the reasoning precedes and controls for actions. But the models for rationality in reasoning have seen major changes and additions in recent years: logicians have taken a dynamic turn, and probabilists have discovered network tools and new representations of uncertainty. In this workshop we address the question how these developments in modelling rationality carry over to the science of decision making.

Invited speakers include Johan van Benthem, Luc Bovens, Richard Bradley, Igor Douven, Stephan Hartmann, Jim Joyce, Christian List, Clemens Puppe, Wlodek Rabinowicz, Teddy Seidenfeld, and Jon Williamson.

We welcome submissions of papers on the special focus of the workshop, or indeed on any aspect of combining probability and logic. Deadline for submissions is June 1st 2009.
