26 August 2019, 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advancement in Concurrency and Logic (RADICAL 2019) , Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation: Amsterdam, The NetherlandsDeadline: Friday 21 June 2019
Concurrency and Logics are two of the most active research areas in the theoretical computer science domain. The literature in these fields is extensive and provides a plethora of logics and models for reasoning about intelligent and distributed systems. More recently, the interplay of concurrency and logic with other research areas has received much attention, as witnessed by recent editions of AI conferences. All these examples share the challenge of developing novel theories and tools for automated reasoning that take into account the behaviour of concurrent and multi-agent entities.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers working on different aspects of logic and concurrency in AI, multi-agent systems, and computer science, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. Besides, it aims to promote research on Foundation of AI in other research communities that are traditionally Theoretical Computer Science-oriented.For more information, see https://sites.google.com/site/radicalconcur/.
