18 September 2006, Workshop "Formal models for real people"

Date: Monday 18 September 2006
Time: 10:00-17:30
Location: Doelenzaal, UB, Singel 425, Amsterdam

With the growth of the cognitive sciences comes an increasing interest in how we can model the cognitive and linguistic achievements of real people, in realistic contexts. There is also growing realisation that formal models can be of use here: they are formal but are not limited to modelling idealisations. In the workshop 'Formal models for real people' researchers from psychology, linguistics and philosophy will present and discuss work which showcases the applicability of formal tools to modelling non-idealised language and reasoning. Topics include, amongst others: causal reasoning, language acquisition, Theory of Mind, reasoning and autism.

No registration is required, but if you are planning to attend the workshop, we would appreciate it if you notified Marian Counihan at . Further details including the day's programme and a route description to the venue, are available at http://oase.uci.kun.nl/~ikramer/realpeople/.
