18-19 September 2014, Workshop "Argumentation, Rationality and Decision", London, U.K.

Date: 18-19 September 2014
Location: London, U.K.
Deadline: 15 July 2014

Recent decades have seen an explosion of research into formal argumentation theory within computer science, drawing on roots in philosophy and legal theory. The formalisms developed enable reasoning with incomplete and inconsistent information to reach decisions that are rational according to various criteria. However, this work has largely been conducted in isolation from the established mathematical decision sciences in microeconomic theory.

The workshop will bring together philosophers, economists, computer scientists and psychologists to discuss areas of common interests and possible directions for research.
