The Second International Workshop on “Defeasible and Ampliative Reasoning” (DARe)
http://dare2015.yolasite.com
held at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2015)

Workshop Description and Aims

Classical reasoning is not flexible enough when directly applied to the formalization of certain nuances of human quotidian decision making. These involve different kinds of reasoning such as reasoning with uncertainty, exceptions, similarity, vagueness, incomplete or contradictory information and many others. It turns out that everyday reasoning usually shows the two salient intertwined aspects below:

MA in Logic and Theory of Science – Budapest

The Logic and Theory of Science MA is a two-year program in English, run by the Department of Logic at Eötvös Lorand University Budapest (acronym: ELTE). Beyond a core curriculum in logic and formal approaches to the philosophy of science, we offer a wide range of advanced courses in logic, philosophy of mathematics, foundations of physics, logical methods in linguistics, philosophy of language,  metaphysics, and formal models in social sciences. Students can choose  a focus according to their own field of interest. The MA is research oriented, and most students continue with a PhD in logic or related fields. Continue reading

The Ninth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on Modeling and Using Context
Larnaca, Cyprus, 2–6 November 2015
http://cyprusconferences.org/context2015https://www.facebook.com/context.conference

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.

Volume on Logic, Argumentation and Reasoning

When:
Saturday, February 28, 2015 all-day
Categories:

A special volume in Springer’s series Logic, Argumentation and Reasoning on applied formal/mathematical philosophy is being edited by Rafal Urbaniak and Gillman Payette. We are requesting papers which apply logical/mathematical methods outside of the usual “core disciplines” of mathematical philosophy, i.e., outside of pure logic, philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, and metaphysics.

If you’re interested, please email your full paper, prepared in PDF and LaTeX formats, prepared for anonymous refereeing to both:

Third Workshop on Natural Language and Computer Science NLCS ’15

When:
Thursday, April 2, 2015 all-day
Where:
Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
Categories:

July 5, 2015, Kyoto, Japan
http://www.indiana.edu/~iulg/nlcs.html

A workshop affiliated with 42nd International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming (ICALP 2015) and 30th Annual ACM/IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS 2015)
Endorsed by the Association for Computational Linguistics Special Interest Group on Computational Semantics
Paper submission deadline: April 2, 2015

AIMS AND SCOPE

Formal tools coming from logic and category theory are important in both natural language semantics and in computational semantics. Moreover, work on these tools borrows heavily from all areas of theoretical computer science. In the other direction, applications having to do with natural language has inspired developments on the formal side. The workshop invites papers on both topics. Specific topics includes, but are not limited to:

Workshop on Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems (LAMAS 2015)

When:
Wednesday, February 11, 2015 all-day
Where:
İstanbul, Turkey
Categories:

Istanbul, May 4 or 5, 2015
http://www.irit.fr/~Emiliano.Lorini/LAMAS2015/welcome.htm

The LAMAS workshop provides a meeting forum for the research community working on various logical aspects of multi-agent systems (MAS) from the perspectives of artificial intelligence, computer science, and game theory. It addresses the whole range of issues that arise in the context of using logic in MAS, from theoretical foundations to algorithmic methods and implemented tools. The workshop is planned to serve two mutually supporting purposes. Primarily, it will be a mini-conference, hosting talks and discussions, and facilitating exchange of information, research ideas, and publication of original research papers on issues listed below. Secondly, the workshop will provide a meeting forum for the research community working on various logical aspects of MAS. The participants will discuss how the community can support coordination of research and dissemination of results. Continue reading
