  • CfP special issue of the Artificial Intelligence Journal (AIJ) on Epistemic Planning

    Deadline: Saturday 1 December 2018

    Epistemic planning is the enrichment of automated planning with epistemic notions such as knowledge and belief. In order to achieve formalisms and systems for epistemic planning that are both expressive and practically efficient, it is necessary to combine state of the art from several such sub-areas of artificial intelligence that have so far been considered mostly in separation. Epistemic planning has applications in game playing, human-robot interaction, social robotics, etc.

    For this special issue of AIJ, we invite papers on theory, applications, and implemented systems of epistemic planning.

  • 7 - 12 April 2019, 4th Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Theorem Proving (AITP 2019), Obergurgl, Austria

    Date: 5 - 10 August 2019
    Location: Prague, Czech Republic
    Deadline: Saturday 15 December 2018

    The 16th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (CLMPST) will take place in Prague, August 5-10, 2019, organised under the auspices of the Division for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology of the International Union for History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (DLMPST/IUHPST) by the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

    The congress has a long history and a unique character, bringing together the communities of logicians, philosophers of logic and philosophers and historians of science and technology. The theme of the 16th edition of the congress is "Bridging across academic cultures". We believe that the communities and societies in both logic and philosophy/history of science are often fragmented and isolated from each other. We want to contribute to redressing this state of things.

    CLMPST 2019 calls for contributed papers and contributed symposia in 20 thematic sections within the general areas of 'Logic', 'General Philosophy of Science' and 'Philosophical Issues of Particular Disciplines'. For contributed papers, please submit, in EasyChair, an abstract of 500 words (including the references), prepared for anonymous review. Symposia are groups of talks on a common theme. Each symposium consists of four to twelve papers - please make a submission for each paper, as well as a submission for the symposium as a whole.

  • 19 - 21 February 2019, Special Session on Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence (NLPinAI 2019), Prague, Czech Republic

    Date: 19 - 21 February 2019
    Location: Prague, Czech Republic
    Target audience: Computational Linguistics
    Deadline: Thursday 20 December 2018

    Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

    The ICAART Special Session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). The goal is to promote intelligent natural language processing and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.

    We invite contributions relevant to the session topics. Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, for preliminary work in progress.

    For more information, see http://www.icaart.org/NLPinAI.aspx or contact Roussanka Loukanova at .

  • CfP Special Issue of "Trends in Logic" on Algebra & Subsstructural Logics

    Deadline: Monday 31 December 2018

    Substructural logics, so named because they are usually formulated as Gentzen systems that lack one or more structural rules, have been intensively studied over the past two decades by logicians of various persuasions - mathematicians, philosophers, linguists and computer scientists.  The recourse to algebraic methods - or, better, the fecund interplay of algebra and proof theory 0 has proved very useful in providing a unifying framework for these investigations. In particular, the series of conferences AsubL - Algebra and Substructural Logic, has played an important role in these developments. This special issue of Trends in Logic will be dedicated to the Conference AsubL (Algebra and substructural Logics - take 6) held in Cagliari on June 2018.

    Following the spirit of the meeting, the present book proposal is aimed at exploring the following main topics:
    - Proof Theory for Substructural Logics
    - Algebraic Structures for Substructural Logics
    - Methods for the Investigation of Substructural Logics
    - Relationships with Other Families of Logics

    For more information, see http://sites.unica.it/asubl6/proceedings/.
  • CfP special issue of MCA on "Numerical and Evolutionary Optimization"

    Deadline: Monday 31 December 2018

    The development of powerful search and optimization techniques is of great importance in science and engineering, particularly in today's world, which requires researchers and practitioners to tackle a variety of challenging real-world problems as technology becomes an ever-more-important aspect of everyday life. There are two well-established and widely-known fields that are addressing these issues: (i) traditional numerical optimization techniques and (ii) comparatively recent bio-inspired heuristics. Both of these fields have developed approaches with their unique strengths and weaknesses, allowing them to solve some challenging problems while sometimes failing in others.

    The aim of this SI is to collect papers on the intersection of numerical and evolutionary optimization.

  • CfP topical issue of Open Philosophy on "Computer Modeling in Philosophy"

    Deadline: Thursday 28 February 2019

    Computational modeling opens new prospects for philosophical exploration and argument. The role played by logic in 20th century philosophy, it can be argued, will be played by computational modeling in the 21st. This special issue is devoted first and foremost to examples of computer-aided or computer-instantiated modeling across the discipline, including but not limited to philosophy of science, cognitive science, philosophy of mind, theory of evolution, logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, and social and political philosophy. Computational techniques range from agent-based modeling to neural networks and data mining. Results can expand the role of intuition pumps and thought experiments, can be used to measure the robustness and parameter-sensitivity of basic models, can put techniques from other disciplines to work in philosophical analysis, can track unexpected consequences of basic assumptions, and can force philosophical assumptions to be made explicit. Beyond new answers, computational techniques can highlight new questions, including questions regarding model validation, complexity, computability, representation, and reality.

    Submissions will be collected from October 1, 2018 to February 28, 2019. There are no specific length limitations. To submit an article for the special issue of Open Philosophy, authors are asked to access the on-line submission system.Before submission the authors should carefully read over the Instruction for Authors. All contributions will undergo critical review before being accepted for publication.

  • 23 - 24 November 2018, Workshop on Mathematical and Astronomical Practices in pre-Enlightenment Scotland and her European Networks, St Andrews, Scotland

    Date: 23 - 24 November 2018
    Location: St Andrews, Scotland

    The workshop will focus on Scottish natural philosophy and mathematics, and their innovative developments between 1550 and 1750. Traditional Scottish historiography of the period has been framed in terms of religious factions. The question of how scientific innovations flourished in this context has been little addressed.

    We are particularly interested in mathematical practices related to measurement both in astronomy and in contexts such as navigation, surveying, cask gauging, grain measuring, and so on. Some apparently paradoxical processes of conceptual change in early modern mathematics, such as of ratio and proportionality, can only be understood by examining the mathematical collective tacit knowledge developed through practices with measuring instruments. Such instruments, and the associated practices, concepts, and books, circulated through networks of exchange.

  • 3 - 15 December 2018, Cantor Meets Robinson: Set theory, model theory, & their philosophy, Sao Paulo & Campinas (Brazil)

    Date: 3 - 15 December 2018
    Location: Sao Paulo & Campinas (Brazil)

    The topic of the conference is the interplay between set theory and model theory, both from a mathematical and a philosophical perspective, with particular emphasis on the method of forcing. This method, invented by Cohen in 1963, facilitated not only a proof of the independence of the Continuum Hypothesis, but also placed at the center of set theory the study of its models. Its model theoretic version, invented by Robinson, attempts to generalize the notion of algebraic closed fields to other areas of mathematics.

    The conferece aims to gather early career scholars in order to foster collaborations and to present a wide perspective on the topics that Cantor and Robinson helped to create and develop. A series of three mini-courses will be held the week before the conference on the topics of Large Cardinals, Robinson Forcing, and Forcing Axioms.

  • 6 - 8 March 2019, Post-truth: The semantics and pragmatics of saying "what you believe to be false", Bremen

    Date: 6 - 8 March 2019
    Location: Bremen

    Grice's first maxim of quality says "do not say what you believe to be false", but we often do. We tell lies ("I did not have sexual relations with that woman"), we deceive (e.g. by lying by implicature), we bullshit ("Trade wars are easy to win"), we make up stories ("When Harry Potter first came to Hogwarts …"), we pretend (Kids playing: "You were Batgirl and I was Wonder Woman"), or we use irony ("Losing the key was very smart!"). In all such speech acts there is a clear sense in which we're not, or at least not literally, speaking the truth. In this workshop we want to discuss the challenges that these and other deviations from the Gricean norm of quality pose for semantics and pragmatics and see if we can incorporate ideas from philosophy, literary theory, cognitive science and other related fields to extend the coverage of our theories of meaning and our understanding of the dynamics and logic of (non-)cooperative conversation.

    Invited speakers: Regine Eckardt (Konstanz) and Jörg Meibauer (Mainz). Organized by Daniel Gutzmann (Cologne), Emar Maier (Groningen), and Katharina Turgay (Landau).

  • 1 - 15 July 2019, Spring Course in Epistemic Game Theory

    Date: 1 - 15 July 2019
    Location: Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands

    Epistemic game theory is a new, fresh approach to game theory where the reasoning of people is at center stage. More precisely, it investigates how people like you and me reason in a game theoretic situation before they make a decision. Not only do we reason about the possible choices of others, but also about the reasoning of others. This type of reasoning will be our main theme of interest. The course offers a deep introduction into the beautiful world of epistemic game theory, and is open to advanced bachelor students, master students, PhD students and researchers all over the world.
