About The Workshop:
Via this workshop, we are creating a forum to exchange ideas and explore new territory in which it is clear that logic can make a difference. We are particularly interested in the interplay between logic and the social sciences, i.e. both in studying complex social-epistemic scenarios as well as in the logical tools and techniques that can be used to model them. We approach the theme of this workshop from an interdisciplinary angle, and welcome any insights on to the topic coming from areas such as Logic, Game Theory, Belief Revision Theory, Formal Epistemology, Social Science, Cognitive Science and AI (multi-agent systems).

The focus of this workshop includes (but is not restricted to) the following topics:

  • formal representations of higher-order belief and knowledge – belief revision strategies and knowledge update rules
  • epistemic and doxastic influence
  • information flow in social networks
  • rational interaction
  • epistemic planning
