20-25 July 2009, Workshop Logical Methods for Social Concepts (LMSC), Bordeaux

Date: 20-25 July 2009
Location: Bordeaux
Deadline: 4 March 2009

Both computer science and the social sciences are interested in social concepts such as power, cooperation, responsibility, delegation, trust, reputation, convention, agreement, commitment, etc. The aim of this workshop is to study whether logical approaches developed in the multi-agent system (MAS) domain are adequate to express them in an accurate way. The workshop is intended to bring together logicians and social theorists in order to provide a better understanding of the potentialities and limitations of logical methods for the analysis of social reality. Its scope includes not only the technical aspects of logics for multi-agent systems, but also multidisciplinary aspects from social sciences (e.g. economics, sociology, social philosophy) and a critical analysis of the existing logical frameworks for the specification of social concepts. It is organized as part of ESSLLI'2009.
