  • 2-4 September 2015, Filomena 2, Natal, Brazil

    The second edition of the FILOMENA Workshop (FIlosofia, LOgica e MEtafísica aNAlítica), promoted by the Group on Logic and Formal Philosophy from the UFRN, has the purpose of gathering logicians working at the intersection of Logic and Metaphysics, through the application of formal methods in Philosophy.

    Logic, while initially considered as a branch of Philosophy, has outgrown its original purposes and found connections with other areas of Philosophy, such as Philosophy of Language, Philosophy of Mathematics, Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind. Since its modern development, Logic has proved to be a powerful tool for analyzing different philosophical theories, as well as their foundations and implications; moreover, the birth and development of non-classical logics has expanded its domain of application much beyond the dreams of its progenitors.

  • 17 or 18 September 2015, EMNLP Workshop on Linking Models of Lexical, Sentential and Discourse-level Semantics (LSDSem 2015), Lisbon

    Improved computational models of semantics hold great promise for applications in language technology, be it semantics at the lexical level, sentence level or discourse level. Large-scale corpora with corresponding annotations (word senses, propositions, attributions and discourse relations) are making it possible to develop statistical models for many tasks and applications. However, developments in lexical and sentence-level semantics remain largely distinct from those in discourse semantics. This workshop aims at bridging this gap by bringing together researchers to discuss how multiple levels of semantics can be integrated and implemented in various applications.

    Our goal is to gather and showcase theoretical and computational approaches to joint models of semantics, and applications that incorporate multi-level semantics. We hope to bring together researchers from various areas: computational linguistics who strive for more expressive models of language understanding, linguists and cognitive scientists interested in aspects of representing text with multiple levels of semantics, machine learning researchers interested in joint inference over different types of semantic cues, and also researchers who are interested in applications that require or will benefit from multi-level semantics. A dialog between researchers has great potential to advance work in each of these areas and bring about more powerful and enriched models of text semantics.

  • 21 September 2015, Workshop "Testing Philosophical Theories Against the History of Science", Oulu, Finland

    Ever since philosophers first started formulating theories of science those theories have been compared with (reconstructions of) episodes in the history of science. On this issue one finds heated discussion in the 1960s and 70s, when some sought to turn philosophy into a testable enterprise, with history taking the place of scientific experiment. The purpose of this workshop is to bring this debate back to the table, assessing it in light of the fact that so many contemporary debates in the philosophy of science make implicit assumptions about how history of science can bear on philosophy of science.

    This is a one-day workshop, 21st September 2015, organised by The Oulu Centre for Theoretical and Philosophical Studies of History and the AHRC project 'Contemporary Scientific Realism and the Challenge from the History of Science. The event is designed to bring together historians and philosophers of science. Keynote Speakers: James McAllister (Leiden), Helge Kragh (Aarhus), Katherina Kinzel (Vienna) and Bart Karstens (Amsterdam).

  • 21-22 September 2015, 3rd International Workshop on Strategic Reasoning (SR 2015), Oxford, England

    Strategic reasoning is one of the most active research areas in the multi-agent system domain. The literature in this field is extensive and provides a plethora of logics for modelling strategic ability. Theoretical results are now being used in many exciting domains, including software tools for information system security, robot teams with sophisticated adaptive strategies, and automatic players capable of beating expert human adversary, just to cite a few. All these examples share the challenge of developing novel theories and tools for agent strategies that take into account the likely behaviour of adversaries. The SR international workshop aims to bring together researchers working on different aspects of strategic reasoning in computer science, artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems research, both from a theoretical and a practical viewpoint.

    Agent-based Computing addresses the challenges in managing distributed computing systems and networks through monitoring, communication, consensus-based decision-making and coordinated actuation. As a result, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems have demonstrated the capability to use intelligence, knowledge representation and reasoning, and other social metaphors like 'trust', 'game' and 'institution', not only to address real-world problems in a human-like way but also to transcend human performance. This has had a transformative impact in many application domains, particularly in e-commerce, and also in planning, logistics, manufacturing, robotics, decision support, transportation, entertainment, emergency relief & disaster management, and data mining & analytics.

  • 14-15 November 2015, The Eighth Workshop on Intelligent Narrative Technologies (INT8), Santa Cruz CA, U.S.A.

    The Intelligent Narrative Technologies (INT) workshop series aims to advance research in artificial intelligence for the computational understanding and expression of narrative. INT8, the eighth workshop in the series, will be co-located with the Eleventh Annual AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE 2015) at University of California, Santa Cruz.

    Recent years have witnessed significant advances in the technical, creative, and aesthetic interpretation of narratives with digital media, including games, simulations, interactive fiction, and electronic literature. Our goal is to contribute to this forward momentum by congregating a multidisciplinary group of researchers and practitioners to share their latest work at the intersection of narrative and technology. Previous meetings of this workshop have brought together computer scientists, psychologists, narrative theorists, media theorists, artists, writers, and members of the interactive entertainment industry. From this broad expertise, the workshop focuses on computational systems to represent, reason about, create, adapt, and perform interactive and non-interactive narrative experiences. This also includes fundamental research in relevant fields such as natural language processing, believable virtual characters, commonsense reasoning, computer vision, computational media, and human storytelling.
