PhD position – University of Dresden

Faculty of Computer Science.
At the Institute of Artificial Intelligence the Chair of Knowledge Representation and
Reasoning offers a full

PhD position

starting at the next possible date. The current funding for the position is for two years, but we aim at an extension of the project. The period of employment is governed by § 2 Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG). The position is part of the DFG Project„ Parallel SAT Solving“. A central goal of the project is to develop a parallel solving approach for the satisfiability testing (SAT) problem, and to implement an according system. To reach this goal, several sub goals should be achieved, whose solution can results in a PhD thesis. The group has contacts to the international research community, and systems of the group are already competitive. Hence, the position furthermore offers the opportunity for networking and international collaboration. Continue reading

Arthur Prior’s birthday at RUC (4/12)

Dear All,

No, sadly, most of us can’t be in Christchurch New Zealand to celebrate Arthur Prior’s birthday party in style in the southern sun. It looks like it will be a very enjoyable event, with Justine Kingsbury (Waikato) opening and Max Cresswell (Victoria) giving the keynote. Here’s the link:

http://2014nzapconference.blogspot.co.nz/

Fortunately, there is an alternative: celebrating it at Roskilde University (RUC) in Denmark. It seems pretty likely that we will be less lucky when it comes to sunshine, but Danes know  how to make winter hyggeligt so it will be nice in a different sort of way. And Prior did spend key years of his life far away in these northern lands, so it is good to celebrate it upover and not just downunder. Now – the website will be available soon. In the meantime, this is just to say that Jack Copeland, Peter Ohrstrøm,  David Jakobsen  and Torben Braüner have all kindly agreed to talk.

TARK 2015

15th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge
June 4-6, 2015
Carnegie Mellon University, USA

Conference website: http://www.imsc.res.in/tark/tark15.html

About the Conference

The mission of the TARK conferences is to bring together researchers from a wide variety of fields, including Artificial Intelligence, Cryptography, Distributed Computing, Economics and Game Theory, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology, in order to further our understanding of interdisciplinary issues involving reasoning about rationality and knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, semantic models for knowledge, belief, awareness and uncertainty, bounded rationality and resource-bounded reasoning, commonsense epistemic reasoning, epistemic logic, epistemic game theory, knowledge and action, applications of reasoning about knowledge and other mental states, belief revision, and foundations of multi-agent systems.

Logic and Probabilistic Methods for Dialog – ESSLLI 2015 workshop

For more detailed info check the website

 https://sites.google.com/site/logicprob4fordialog/

Workshop Aims.  Traditional approaches to dialogue modeling have focused on the representation and manipulation of symbolic representations of agent and dialogue states as well as communicative actions.  More recently, data driven probabilistic approaches have been receiving greater attention within the research community.  The aim of this workshop is to explore the prospects for hybrid approaches that combine both paradigms as well as analyses of the types of problems that are more amenable to one approach versus another.
