    Title: Judgment Aggregation
    Location: AUC Common Room - Science Park 113, Amsterdam

    This lecture will be an introduction to the theory of judgment aggregation (JA). JA deals with the problem of combining the views of several individual agents regarding the truth of a number of propositions, expressed in the language of logic, into a single such view that appropriately reflects the stance of the group as a whole. Applications of JA range from aggregating the opinions of several judges in a court of law into a single legal opinion, all the way to aggregating information received from several autonomous software agents in the context of distributed computing systems.

  • 8 - 19 August 2022, 33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2022), Galeway, Ireland

    Date: 8 - 19 August 2022
    Location: Galeway, Ireland
    Deadline: Tuesday 15 June 2021

    Under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language, and Information (FoLLI), the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) runs every year. Except for 2021, where the school will be virtual, it runs in a different European country each year. It takes place over two weeks in the summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both introductory and advanced levels, and attracts around 400 participants from all over the world.

    The main focus of ESSLLI is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited evening lectures.
