18 October 2011, ICS-SIKS Symposium on Norms, Logic and Dependence

Speaker: Paolo Turrini, Eric Pacuit, Rosja Mastop, Marek Sergot, Leon van der Torre
Date: Tuesday 18 October 2011
Location: Boothzaal, Universiteitsbibliotheek Utrecht, Heidelberglaan 3, De Uithof

The classical theory of coalitional decision making, better known as cooperative game theory, deals with extremely abstract models of joint action that often abstract away from the highly dynamic processes leading a set of players to work together for a common purpose, such as the influence of norms, the interdependence among the players, the awareness of future possibilities, to mention a few.

This workshop, on the occasion of Paolo Turrini's PhD defense, tackles such dynamic aspects involved in coalition formation, by pursuing an interdisciplinary approach at the interface of (deontic) logic, artificial intelligence, and socio-economical disciplines. More specifically, the topics touched upon will be: norms and games, norms for the dynamics of interaction (procedures), the dynamics of normative systems, norms of reciprocity, theory of threats and the dynamics of different cognitive attitudes (e.g. knowledge and preference).
