  • 4 - 5 October 2018, Bridging the gap between formal argumentation & actual human reasoning, Institute for Philosophy II, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany

    Date: 4 - 5 October 2018
    Location: Institute for Philosophy II, Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany
    Deadline: Tuesday 31 July 2018

    Non-monotonic reasoning has received a lot of attention in the fields of artificial intelligence and philosophical logic. One of the most promising paradigms is formal argumentation. One central goal of this research program is to give a (normative) account of actual human reasoning. However, there is still a substantial gap between these formal models and many real-life instances of the formalized phenomena.

    This workshop welcomes abstracts (≈ 1000 words) can be submitted on the following topics addressing the gap between formal models of human reasoning and and real-life instances of the formalized phenomena. In particular the this workshop we intend to approach this gap from three different angles: the Linguistic angle, the Inferential angle, and the Cognitive angle.

  • 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
    Deadline: Wednesday 15 August 2018

    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).

    Send anonymous two-page abstracts for 20 minute talks (plus 10 minutes discussion) in pdf-format to: Deadline: August 15, 2018.

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

    Deadline: Monday 1 October 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.

  • 21 - 25 January 2019, Syntax Meets Semantics 2019

    Date: 21 - 25 January 2019
    Location: Doelenzaal, University Library, Singel 425 Amsterdam Nederland
    Deadline: Friday 5 October 2018

    Substructural logics are formal reasoning systems that refine classical logic by weakening structural rules in a Gentzen-style sequent calculus. Traditionally, substructural logics have been investigated using proof theoretic and algebraic methods. In recent years, combined approaches have started to emerge. The programme of the SYSMICS conference will focus on interactions between syntactic and semantic methods in substructural logics. This conference is the last of a series of meetings planned in the SYSMICS RISE project during 2016-2019.

    Contributed talks can be on any topic related to substructural logic. The Programme Committee will accept submissions of abstracts ranging from 2 to 4 pages.

    For more information, see http://events.illc.uva.nl/SYSMICS2019/.
  • CfP special issue of Synthese on "Reliability"

    Deadline: Sunday 11 November 2018

    Current political, social and even scientific debates all hinge upon whether data, inferences and/or belief forming processes are reliable. We are calling for philosophical/methodological contributions which help us through these difficult circumstances.

    Given the variety of intertwined problems we are calling for contributions addressing the notion of reliability [broadly construed]. Submissions should be prepared like any other submission to Synthese prepared to under-go double-blind peer-review.

    For more information, see here or contact .
  • 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.

  • 1 - 3 August 2018, International Conference "Varieties of Mathematical Abstraction", Vienna, Austria

    Date: 1 - 3 August 2018
    Location: Vienna, Austria

    Mathematical abstraction is a general phenomenon, a process by which we generalize from the properties and relations of particular objects to the abstract, mathematical structure that those objects exhibit. It is a process that can be iterated to achieve higher levels of abstraction, and plays an important role in shaping how we think about and understand empirical phenomena. The main objective of this conference is to explore the philosophical significance of mathematical abstraction from different perspectives: metaphysically, epistemologically, historically, and practically. Particular attention will be devoted to the role of abstraction in mathematical practice.

  • 5 - 8 August 2018, Fifteenth International Conference on Computability and Complexity in Analysis (CCA 2018), Lake Kochel, Germany

    Date: 5 - 8 August 2018
    Location: Lake Kochel, Germany

    The conference is concerned with the theory of computability and complexity over real-valued data.

    Most mathematical models in physics and engineering are based on the real number concept. Thus, a computability theory and a complexity theory over the real numbers and over more general continuous data structures is needed. Scientists working in the area of computation on real-valued data come from different fields, such as theoretical computer science, domain theory, logic, constructive mathematics, computer arithmetic, numerical mathematics and all branches of analysis. The conference provides a unique opportunity for people from such diverse areas to meet, present work in progress and exchange ideas and knowledge.

    The conference CCA 2018 is held in Honour of Klaus Weihrauch's 75th Birthday, and is preceded by the conference Computability in Europe (CiE 2018) that takes place in Kiel, in the north of Germany, from July 30 to August 3, 2018.

  • 6 - 10 August 2018, Workshop Bridging formal and conceptual semantics (BRIDGE 2018), Sofia, Bulgaria

    Date: 6 - 10 August 2018
    Location: Sofia, Bulgaria

    The main aim of this ESSLLI 2018 workshop is to get together linguists, philosophers and cognitive scientists from the two leading research traditions of natural language meaning, often referred to them as "formal semantics" and "conceptual semantics". The workshop provides a platform to investigate and discuss the ways of possible bridges between the two semantic perspectives, and to initiate a deeper conversation and collaboration between them. The workshop intends to gather approaches that show the way how the two perspectives can strengthen each other.

    The workshop holds 6 high-quality contributed talks, each of 45 minutes including discussions, and invited talks by Gemma Boleda (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University).

  • 6 - 10 August 2018, ESSLLI Workshop on Ambiguity: Perspectives on Representation & Resolution (ARR), Sofia, Bulgaria

    Date: 6 - 10 August 2018
    Location: Sofia, Bulgaria

    There are various approaches to ambiguity from a wide variety of perspectives. This is due to the fact that ambiguity exists and arises on many different levels of natural language. We want to bring together scholars working on different aspects of ambiguity, in particular to approach the following questions:
    1. What is the core of this phenomenon?
    2. What is the common ground in approaching the phenomenon?
    3. What can be gained by combining different approaches?

    Our special focus is thus on bringing together approaches seeing ambiguity as a mere computational problem and approaches seeing it as a linguistic phenomenon with some interest in itself.

  • 22 August 2018, Masterclass on Generalised Baire Spaces, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Date: Wednesday 22 August 2018
    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    In classical descriptive set theory, Baire space is the most central topological space for the study of the real numbers, consisting of functions from omega to omega. Moving from omega to an uncountable cardinal kappa, one can consider *generalised Baire spaces*, the sets of functions from kappa to kappa. The study of these spaces has become a very important subject in set theory in the past decade.

    In combination with the KNAW Academy Colloquium "Generalised Baire Spaces", the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences is offering a one day Master Class on the topic of Generalised Baire Spaces, with four 2-hour courses taught by Andreas Blass, Jouko Vaananen, Andrew Brooke-Taylor, and Philipp Schlicht. This Master Class, intended for graduate students, will teach the basic material needed to understand the research results discussed during the colloquium on the two following days.

  • 23 - 25 August 2018, KNAW Academy Colloquium "Generalised Baire Spaces", Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    Date: 23 - 25 August 2018
    Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    The study of generalised Baire spaces has developed into a research area in its own right with a rich overarching theory, internally motivated open questions (cf. Khomskii, Laguzzi, Loewe, Sharankou 2016) and an active research community, combining methods and techniques from several branches of set theory as well as classical model theory. While many concepts from the classical setting can be transferred to generalised Baire space and some classical results remain true at uncountable cardinals, in general the rich combinatorial nature of uncountable cardinals causes the theory of the corresponding spaces to differ significantly, e.g., notions which are equivalent in the classical setting can lead to different notions in the generalised theory. Phenomena like this shed light on structures and properties otherwise hidden in the classical setting.

    This Academy Colloquium is a reunion of the research community after a hiatus of two years. The Colloquium will be preceded by an associated KNAW Master Class for postgraduate students in order to prepare them for the talks at the Colloquium.

  • 28 - 31 August 2018, Logic, Algebra and Truth Degrees 2018 (LATD 2018, Berne, Switzerland

    Date: 28 - 31 August 2018
    Location: Berne, Switzerland

    Mathematical Fuzzy Logic is the sub-discipline of Mathematical Logic that is concerned with the notion of comparative truth. The assumption that "truth comes in degrees" has proved to be very useful in many theoretical and applied areas of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Philosophy. The LATD conference series started as an official meeting of the working group on Mathematical Fuzzy Logic and has evolved into a wider meeting in algebraic logic and related areas. Its main goal is to foster collaboration between researchers in these areas, and to promote communication and cooperation with members of neighbouring fields.

  • 28 - 31 August 2018, Symposium Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 2018 (LACompLing2018), Stockholm, Sweden

    Date: 28 - 31 August 2018
    Location: Stockholm, Sweden
    Costs: Roussanka Loukanova, Kristina Liefke

    Computational linguistics studies natural language in its various manifestations from a computational point of view, both on the theoretical level (modeling grammar modules dealing with natural language form and meaning, and the relation between these two) and on the practical level (developing applications for language and speech technology). Right from the start in the 1950ties, there have been strong links with computer science, logic, and many areas of mathematics - one can think of Chomsky's contributions to the theory of formal languages and automata, or Lambek's logical modeling of natural language syntax. The workshop assesses the place of logic, mathematics, and computer science in present day computational linguistics. It intends to be a forum for presenting new results as well as work in progress.

    The workshop focuses mainly on logical approaches to computational processing of natural language, and on the applicability of methods and techniques from the study of artificial languages (programming/logic) in computational linguistics. We invite participation and submissions from other relevant approaches too, especially if they can inspire new work and approaches.

  • 2 - 5 September 2018, 1st International Summer School on Proof Theory, Ghent, Belgium

    Date: 2 - 5 September 2018
    Location: Ghent, Belgium
    Target audience: advanced master students, PhD students postdocs and experienced researchers in mathematics, computer science and philosophy

    The 1st International Summer School for Proof Theory in Ghent is arranged under the auspices of The Proof Society, and is sponsored by the Kurt Gödel Society. The Proof Society has recently been formed to support the notion of proof in its broadest sense, through a series of suitable activities; to be therefore inclusive in reaching out to all scientific areas which consider proof as an object in their studies; to enable the community to shape its future by identifying, formulating and communicating its most important goals; to actively promote proof to increase its visibility and representation.

    The aim of the summer school is to cover basic and advanced topics in proof theory. The focus of the first edition will be on structural proof theory, ordinal analysis, provability logic, automated theorem proving, and philosophical aspects of proof. Other areas like reverse mathematics, proof mining, and proof complexity will be covered at the workshop, and in follow up summer schools. The intended audience is advanced master students, PhD students, postdocs and experienced researchers in mathematics, computer science and philosophy.

    The summer school is co-located with a workshop on proof theory in Ghent (6-7 September). The workshop will be the inaugural meeting of The Proof Society. Students are invited to apply with an informal abstract (1 page) to the poster session which will be held as part of the workshop.

  • 2 September 2018, Compositional Approaches for Physics, NLP, and Social Sciences

    Date: Sunday 2 September 2018
    Location: Nice, France

    Compositional Approaches for Physics, NLP, and Social Sciences (CAPNS 2018) will be colocated with QI 2018. The workshop is a continuation and extension of the Workshop on Semantic Spaces at the Intersection of NLP, Physics and Cognitive Science, held in June 2016.

    The ability to compose parts to form a more complex whole, and to analyze a whole as a combination of elements, is desirable across disciplines. In this workshop we bring together researchers applying compositional approaches to NLP, Physics, Cognitive Science, and Game Theory. The categorical model of Coecke et al. [2010], inspired by quantum protocols, has provided a convincing account of compositionality in vector space models of NLP. Similar category-theoretic approaches have been applied in cognitive science, and now are being extended to game theory. The interplay between the three disciplines will foster theoretically motivated approaches to understanding how meanings of words interact in sentences and discourse, how concepts develop, and how complex games can be analyzed. Commonalities between the compositional mechanisms employed may be extracted, and applications and phenomena traditionally thought of as 'non-compositional' will be examined.

  • 3 September 2018, Mini-Symposium "Mathematical Logic" at the 18th EWM meeting, Graz, Austria

    Date: Monday 3 September 2018
    Location: Graz, Austria

    The 18th European Women in Mathematics General Meeting  focuses on female mathematicians and their achievements. As part of this event, the Mini-Symposium on Mathematical Logic concentrates on recent results that demonstrate the fruitfulness of working at the interface between different parts of logic -- that is, model theory, set theory, recursion (or computability) theory and proof theory -- or between logic and other areas of mathematics. Our speakers therefore come from different fields of mathematical logic and are interested in cross-connections between their fields and areas of application such as topology, group theory, real geometry and combinatorics. For the general audience we are planning an introductory lecture on recent developments in model theory and its applications to real geometry.

    Invited speakers: Laura Fontanella (Université Aix Marseille), Charlotte Kestner (Imperial College, London) Salma Kuhlmann (University of Konstanz), Heike Mildenberger (Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg), Diana Carolina Montoya (Kurt Gödel Research Center, Vienna).

  • 11 - 15 September 2018, Poznań Reasoning Week 2018, Poznań, Poland

    Date: 11 - 15 September 2018
    Location: Poznań, Poland

    Poznań Reasoning Week 2018, which is the third edition of PRW, consists of three conferences, aimed at bringing together experts whose research offers a broad range of perspectives on systematic analyses of reasoning processes and their formal modelling:
    - Games and Reasoning 2018 (11 september)
    - Logic and Cognition 2018 (12-13 september)
    - Refutation Symposium 2018 (14-15 september)

    The aim of the Games and Reasoning conference is to gather researchers from various fields who use games as tools in their research. The concept of a game includes here serious games, scientific discovery games, gamification techniques in science, games with a purpose as well as the more general approaches using game theoretical framework.

    Logic and Cognition is an initiative focusing on research on the interplay of logic, cognitive science, psychology and computer science which aim at shedding the light on actual reasoning processes.

    Refutation systems are axiomatic systems applied to non-valid formulas (or sequents). A refutation system consists of refutation axioms and refutation rules. This approach is complementary to standard proof methods.  Although refutation systems are not widely known, we believe that the method has potential and can produce results that are both interesting and useful. The goal of the Refutation Symposium is to explain key concepts and techniques, and present new results on refutation systems.

  • 17 - 18 September 2018, Workshop "Once upon a time... Semantic approaches to fiction, literature, and narrative", Groningen, the Netherlands

    Date: 17 - 18 September 2018
    Location: Groningen, the Netherlands

    We seem to approach a text that we know to be a work of fiction rather differently than a newspaper article, or a conversation about the weather. An influential view in philosophy is that fictional narratives are prescriptions for the reader to imagine some fictional world, while regular assertions are proposals to update the common ground. But whatever the eventual diagnosis, the (apparent) difference between the interpretation of fiction and of non-fiction already raises interesting linguistic questions: How does a reader even know that a text is fiction? Are there linguistic clues an author may leave that mark a given text as such? And is our formal semantic toolkit, developed for dealing with assertions in every day communication, suitable and sufficient for dealing with the peculiarities of narrative fiction and literary style?

    In this workshop we want to bring together linguists and philosophers interested in applying formal semantic tools to linguistic phenomena characteristic of fiction/narrative.

  • 17 - 18 September 2018, 1st International Workshop on Ontology of Economics, Cape Town (South Africa)

    Date: 17 - 18 September 2018
    Location: Cape Town (South Africa)

    Understanding the ontological nature of economic concepts and institutions is crucial for providing principled modelling in many important domains such as enterprise modelling, business processes, and social ontology. A significant number of fundamental concepts that are ubiquitous in economics have only recently been approached from an ontological perspective. For instance: value, risk, preference, utility, capability, good, service, exchange, transaction, competition. This workshop offers a venue to gather the recent contributions to this important topic.

    The workshop is part of the Joint Ontology Workshop Programme associated with the 10th International Conference on Formal Ontology in Information Systems (FOIS).

  • 17 - 18 September 2018, Epistemology in Ontologies (EPINON II), Cape Town, South Africa

    Date: 17 - 18 September 2018
    Location: Cape Town, South Africa

    Formal ontologies and knowledge representation mainly focus on characterising how a given domain is structured, i.e., they identify a set of concepts, entities, and relations together with the constraints that hold for this domain. The structure of the characterisation is usually intended to reflect the point of view of significant experts or a realist view of how things about a particular domain are in reality. The aim of this workshop is to explore an epistemological stance in formal ontology and knowledge representation and focus on the assessment of the modelling provided by the ontology designer.

    In particular, we are interested in fostering the discussion about two intertwined research directions: epistemology of ontology and and ontology of epistemology. We are interested in formal and ontological approaches to the definitions of the concepts that are relevant to the assessment of the perspective of the ontology designer. Problems related to this direction include: ontology of general epistemological concepts (e.g. proof, argument, explanation, epistemic reliability, trust), ontology of cognitive concepts (perception, reasoning, sensations), ontology of data and measurements.

  • 20 - 21 September 2018, 4th Installment of Logic Now and Then (LNAT4): Scales in language and logic, Brussels, Belgium

    Date: 20 - 21 September 2018
    Location: Brussels, Belgium

    Scalarity is a rich field of study in linguistics and logic. Linguistically, it enters into the meaning of a wide range of expressions. The best-known case in degree semantics may well be the gradable adjective (tall, short, likely, good ), but crosscategorially many other cases have been detected and analysed in similar scalar terms. LNAT4 seeks to consider (i) the nature and variation of scalarity in language and logic, (ii) the diagrams proposed for scalar notions, as well as (iii) the nature of possible connections between logico-linguistic scalar concepts and perception scales.

    Invited Speakers: Christopher Kennedy (University of Chicago) and Stefanie Solt (Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS).

  • 24 - 28 September 2018, 1st workshop of Formal Reasoning and Semantics (FORMALS 2018), Dubrovnik, Croatia

    Date: 24 - 28 September 2018
    Location: Dubrovnik, Croatia

    The 1st workshop of Formal Reasoning and Semantics will be held at the Inter-University Center Dubrovnik (IUC) as a part of the 7th conference Logic and Applications (LAP 2018). The workshop is organized within the research project Formal Reasoning and Semantics (FORMALS).

    The emphasis of the project is on applications of logic in computer science, and vice versa, the application of computational tools in logical and mathematical research. Another goal is to apply logic to specific problems of linguistics or, more generally, cognitive and information sciences, as well as interdisciplinary areas in which economics and mathematics overlap (game theory, social choice theory).

  • 24 - 27 September 2018, Trends in Logic XVIII: Fine-Grained Semantics for Modal Logic, Milan, Italy

    Date: 24 - 27 September 2018
    Location: Milan, Italy

    In the last few decades an impressive amount of foundational research in philosophical logic has been devoted to the development of semantical tools which provide sufficiently fine-grained semantics to deal with important topics of pure and applied modal logic, such as the representation of situations, states of affairs, structured contents, hyperintensional contexts, and agent-related attitudes, like epistemic and prohairetic attitudes. A number of different modal frameworks have emerged to tackle these themes. The aim of this conference is to study the potential of these approaches and to explore new connections between them, by providing a forum to present new ideas and analytical methods.

    Invited Speakers: Sergei Artemov (New York), Marta Bilkova (Prague), Hannes Leitgeb (Munich) and Sonja Smets (Amsterdam).

  • 19 - 21 October 2018, 4th Workshop on Connexive Logics, Bochum, Germany

    Date: 19 - 21 October 2018
    Location: Bochum, Germany

    Modern connexive logic started in the 1960s with seminal papers by Richard B. Angell and Storrs McCall. Systems of connexive logic have been motivated by considerations on a content connection between the antecedent and succedent of valid implications and by applications that range from Aristotle's syllogistic to Categorial Grammar and the study of causal implications. As we are observing some growing interests in topics related to connexive logics, the fourth workshop aims at discussing directions for future research in connexive logics. Moreover, we will have a special session on contra-classical logics, namely a broad family of nonclassical logics, including connexive logics, that are orthogonal to classical logic.

  • 30 October - 2 November 2018, 16th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2018), Tempe AZ, U.S.A.

    Date: 30 October - 2 November 2018
    Location: Tempe AZ, U.S.A.

    Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) is an exciting, well-established field of research. In KRR a fundamental assumption is that an agent's knowledge is explicitly represented in a declarative form, suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines. This assumption, that much of what an agent deals with is knowledge-based, is common in many modern intelligent systems. In recent years KRR has contributed to new and emerging fields including the semantic web, computational biology, and the development of software agents.

    The KR conference series is the leading forum for timely in-depth presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the representation and computational management of knowledge. Workshops and tutorials will precede the KR technical program and will run on 27-29 October 2018.

    KR also features a Doctoral Consortium program, a student mentoring program bringing together PhD students and senior researchers from the area of KR. Application deadline: June 24, 2018.
