14-15 December 2012, Belief Change in Social Context - LogiCIC Project kick-off workshop

Date: 14-15 December 2012
Location: (<em style="color: red">changed!</em>) Room 105, P.C. Hoofthuis, Spuistraat 134, 1012 VB Amsterdam

This workshop will create a platform for researchers coming from different fields to present their work and exchange ideas on the topic of belief change in social contexts. We look both at already-established work as well as the possible new connections that can emerge between the areas of logic, belief revision theory, learning theory, game theory and social science.

We are particularly interested in the conceptual-theoretical work as well as in the applications of formal models to specific multi-agent scenarios in which belief revision plays a crucial role. In contrast to the classical single-agent approach to Belief Revision Theory, the new developments from the area of Logic and Game Theory make it now possible to pursue a multi-agent perspective. Similarly, the study of the iterated belief revision procedures can benefit from the work on learning strategies in Formal Learning Theory. Bringing the ideas from these different areas together allows us to put forward new theoretical work which can lead to new modeling techniques and offer a better understanding of puzzling social-informational phenomena (such as pluralistic ignorance, the bandwagoning effect, group polarization, etc.).

Everybody is welcome to attend, please register via the workshop website. For more information, see http://www.ninagierasimczuk.com/logicic/kickoff/.
