Special Issue Synthese: "Logic and Social Interaction"

Deadline: 1 May 2009

There is now a growing body of research on formal algorithmic models of social procedures and interactions between rational agents. Largely using the language of logic and game theory, these studies have led to new insights into the dynamics of observation, updating of knowledge and belief, preference change, dialogues and processes of strategic interaction. Central to many of these studies is a multi-agent perspective on rational agency that situates inference in an interactive context.

In this context, a workshop on Logic and Social Interaction was held in the Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai during 7-8 January, 2009, focussing on current advances made towards modelling complex multi-agent interactive situations, attempting to identify logical elements in our daily social activities. As a follow-up of the Workshop, a special issue of the "Knowledge, Rationality and Action" section of the journal "Synthese" is planned on the theme of Logic and Social Interaction.

Deadline for abstracts: May 1st, 2009. For more information, see the Special Issue page at http://www.imsc.res.in/tcsweb/kra-lasi.html and the workshop page at http://ali.cmi.ac.in/icla2009/social.html.
