11 October 2012, Spatial Representation and Logic, Lausanne, Switzerland

Date: 11 October 2012
Location: Lausanne, Switzerland

The way in which human beings comprehend their spatial environment has always been at the core of philosophical attention. At the beginning of the 20th century, philosophers started developing formal ontological theories that should capture the structural relationships among things in space, thereby giving rise to qualitative geometries. In more recent years, qualitative geometry has become increasingly popular among computer scientists whose aim is to model human behaviour in a natural environment. Our workshop will focus on both formal ontological theories of spatial representation, and their applications in Computer Science.
