CfP: Studia Logica special issue on Information Sharing in Networks (Deadline September 1st 2023)

We would like to invite contributions to a special issue of Studia Logica on information sharing in networks.

Over the past few decades, we have witnessed an explosive increase in the amount of information being shared across networks. This includes communication between humans in social networks and by machines in computer networks. Furthermore, this increase is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. We should therefore endeavour to develop improved techniques for information sharing.

Improvements can take the form of faster or more reliable ways to spread information, as studied in the so-called "gossip problem" and adjacent topics such as broadcasting. But improvements can also be based in the social aspects of communication. For example, in order to avoid being taken in by "fake news" and other misinformation, humans in a social network and nodes in a computer network alike need to determine which of their peers are reliable, which are misinformed, and which are malicious.

In this special issue, we welcome contributions that formally analyse the technical or social aspects of communication in a (social or computer) network. Topics of interest therefore include, but are not limited to,
- combinatorial and computational aspects of gossip and broadcasting
- epistemic gossip protocols,
- social epistemology,
- logics for social networks.

The guest editors for the special issue will be:

Louwe Kuijer (University of Liverpool)
Hans van Ditmarsch (University of Toulouse, CNRS, IRIT)
Wiebe van der Hoek (University of Liverpool)

For more information, or if you are unsure whether your paper would fit in the scope of the special issue, please contact Louwe Kuijer, at .

The submission deadline (extended) is on the 30th of September, 2023. Papers should be submitted via the Editorial Manager (, where authors should select the article type "S.I. Information Sharing in Networks".
