Reasoning about other minds (RAOM) – Call for participation

The workshop “Reasoning about other minds: Logical and cognitive perspectives” will take place on Monday, August 4 and Tuesday morning, August 5, in the Senaatszaal in the Academy Building in Groningen.

This workshop aims to shed light on models of social reasoning that take into account realistic resource bounds. People reason about other people’s mental states in order to understand and predict the others’ behavior. This capability to reason about others’ knowledge, beliefs and intentions is often referred to as ‘theory of mind’. Idealized rational agents are capable of recursion in their social reasoning, and can reason about phenomena like common knowledge. Such idealized social reasoning has been modeled by modal logics such as epistemic logic and BDI (belief, goal, intention) logics. However, in real-world situations, many people seem to lose track of such recursive social reasoning after only a few levels. Cognitive scientists build computational models of social reasoning, for example, recently an “inverse planning” model based on Bayesian inference frameworks has proven successful in modeling human inferences about the goals and beliefs underlying other people’s observed behavior. The workshop provides a forum for researchers who attempt to analyze, understand and model how resource-bounded agents reason about other minds. Continue reading

CONTEXT 2015 – interdisciplinary conference on modeling and using context

The Ninth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context
Larnaca, Cyprus, 2–6 November 2015

The CONTEXT conferences are the world’s prime forum for presentation and exchange of insights and cutting-edge results from the wide range of disciplines concerned with context.

The main theme of CONTEXT 2015 is “Back to the roots”, focusing on the importance of interdisciplinary cooperations and studies of the phenomenon. Context, context modeling and context comprehension are central topics in linguistics, philosophy, sociology, artificial intelligence, computer science, art, law, organizational sciences, cognitive science, psychology, etc. and are also essential for the effectiveness of modern, complex and distributed software systems.
