SUMMARY:Workshop "Logics for Social Behaviour", Le
iden, The Netherlands
DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20141110
DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20141114
LOCATION:Leiden, The Netherlands
DESCRIPTION:This workshop is aimed at starting new
scientific collaborations between (a) mathematica
l logicians using algebraic, topological and categ
ory-theoretic methods for nonclassical logics, and
(b) researchers in social choice and judgment agg
regation interested in applying logical methods.
While researchers in group (a) are mostly unfami
liar with social choice as a potential field of ap
plication of their specific results and techniques
, researchers in group (b) have mostly been expose
d to only a fragment of the available logical form
alisms and techniques, namely to those pertaining
to classical logic and model theory, and have larg
ely not been exposed to the results and techniques
in the area of group (a). The many possibilities
for applying nonclassical logics and their surroun
ding mathematical theory (duality theory, algebrai
c, topological, and category-theoretic methods) to
social choice and judgment aggregation form an un
charted research territory which the workshop aims
at exploring. Towards this goal, rather than d
isplaying the standard organization, the present w
orkshop is structured around three types of activi
ties: tutorial sessions, discussion sessions and w
ork sessions. There is a limited number of plac
es still available. If you are interested in parti
cipating in the workshop, please contact one of th
e organizers preferably no later than June 10, 201
