Call for Participation
ICCL Summer School 2008
COMPUTATIONAL LOGIC AND COGNITIVE SCIENCE
Technische Universität Dresden
August 24 -- September 6, 2008
The summer academy will focus on the long-lasting controversy of the
relationship between modern formal logic (including its use for
automated reasoning and computation) and, on the other hand, the
rationality and common sense underlying human reasoning.
Traditionally, a huge gap is perceived between the symbolic
representation of knowledge used in modern logic and the
sub-symbolic representation considered dominant in human reasoning.
Psychological experiments of the past even suggested that people
often don't reason logically and, in general, that logic seems to
play only a minor role in human reasoning. However, recently, new
ways of explaining human reasoning seem to revive its relatedness to
logic. For this reason this summer academy attempts to bring
together researchers from both sides for an exchange of views.
If you want to attend the summer school, we'd prefer that
you register by April 1, 2008.
(See the online registration on the web page mentioned
For all who want to apply for a grant, this deadline is
After April 1, 2008, registration will be possible as
long as there are vacant places.
(Since we intend to restrict participation to about 60
people, in case of excessive demand, we will have to
close the registration to the summer school.)
People applying until April 1, 2008, and applying for a
grant will be informed about respective decisions on
grants at latest by end of April 2008.
We ask for a participation fee of 200 EUR.
A limited number of grants may be available, please indicate
in your application if the only possibility for you to
participate is via a grant. Applications for grants must
include an estimate of travel costs (to be filled in the
respective part of the online registration form).
It will be possible for some participants to present
their research work during a small workshop integrated in
the summer school. If you would like to do so, please
register by means of the online workshop registration
form on the web page mentioned above: (The title of your
proposed talk, and, in addition, an extended abstract or
a full paper of at most 10 pages in postscript or pdf
format must be submit by April 1, 2008.)
A program committee consisting of the summer school
lecturers will select among the submissions.
Notification of acceptance of a talk at the integrated
workshop will be at latest by end of April 2008.
Please note that participation at the summer school is a
prerequisite for participation at the workshop.
