16-18 October 2014, Logical aspects of Rational Agency (LARA2014), St Petersburg Russia

Date: 16-18 October 2014
Location: St Petersburg Russia
Deadline: 1 June 2014

The cognitive diversity of agents has been a recurrent topic of contemporary investigations in the fields of artificial intelligence, information science, psychology, linguistics, neurosciences and logic, opening new horizons for logical inquiry that focuses on the in-depth analysis of rational agency. Today it is a novel challenge and a cross point for various lines of research including the study of formal theories, informal philosophical and logical approaches as well as that of their wider application. We encourage the discussions related to the logical aspects of the diversity of agents.
