SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS WORKSHOP ON LOGICS FOR RESOURCE BOUNDED AGENTS http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/%7Enza/LRBA06/ 7 - 11 August 2006 organized as part of the European Summer School on Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2006) (http://esslli2006.lcc.uma.es/) 31 July - 11 August, 2005, Malaga, Spain Workshop organizers: Thomas Agotnes (agotnes_(on)_ii.uib.no) and Natasha Alechina (nza_(on)_cs.nott.ac.uk). Contact: bounded06_(on)_ii.uib.no Workshop purpose Logics of knowledge and belief, as well as other attitudes such as desire or intention, have been extensively studied. However, most of the treatments of knowledge and belief make strong and idealised assumptions about the reasoners. For example, traditional epistemic logic say that agents know all logical consequences of their knowledge. Similarly, logics of action and strategic interaction are usually based on game theoretic models which assume perfect rationality. Models based on such assumptions can be used to describe ideal agents without bounds on resources such as time, memory, etc, but they fail to accurately describe non-ideal agents which are computationally bounded. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and discuss possible solutions to the problem of formally capturing the properties of knowledge, belief, action, etc. of non-idealised resource-bounded agents with colleagues and researchers who work in logic, computer science and other areas represented at ESSLLI. Workshop topics Topics include, but are not limited to, logical models of: - logically non-omniscient agents in general - explicit knowledge and belief - algorithmic knowledge - temporal logics of reasoning - active logics - knowledge and belief of reasoners with bounds on reasoning time - knowledge and belief of reasoners with bounded memory - knowledge and belief of reasoners with other resource bounds (e.g. bandwidth, sensing limitations) - other attitudes, such as desire, intention, etc., under bounded resources - limited awareness - paraconsistent logics - rational choice under bounded resources - games under bounded resources, e.g., - games with bounded recall - resource bounded reasoning about the structure of the game - incomplete information due to bounded resources Workshop details Authors are invited to submit a full paper either describing their published work (which should be instructive and interesting to PhD students working in the field and appropriate for presentation at the Summer School), or new and unpublished work. Submissions should not exceed 15 pages in LaTeX 11pt article style. The following formats are accepted: pdf, ps. Please submit on line at http://www.easychair.org/LRBA06/submit/ For any questions, please use bounded06_(on)_ii.uib.no. The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's programme committee and additional reviewers. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by ESSLLI. It is likely that a selection of (revised and expanded) versions of the workshop papers will appear in a special issue of a journal. Workshop format The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consequtive days in the second week of ESSLLI. There will be 2 slots for paper presentation and discussion per session. On the first day the workshop organizers will give an introduction to the topic. Workshop programme committee Thomas Agotnes (University of Bergen) Natasha Alechina (University of Nottingham) Johan van Benthem (University of Amsterdam) Michael Fisher (University of Liverpool) Chiara Ghidini (ITC-irst) Paul Harrenstein (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen) Wiebe van der Hoek (University of Liverpool) Jacek Malec (Lund University) Donald Perlis (University of Maryland) Luciano Serafini (ITC-irst) Important dates * Submissions: March 8, 2006 * Notification: April 21, 2006 * Final papers for proceedings: May 1, 2006 * Final programme: June 21, 2006 * Workshop dates: 7- 11 August, 2006 Local arrangements All workshop participants including the presenters will be required to register for ESSLLI. The registration fee for authors presenting a paper will correspond to the early student/workshop speaker registration fee. Moreover, a number of fee waiver grants might be made available by the organizing committee on a competitive basis and workshop participants are eligible to apply for those. There will be no reimbursement for travel costs and accomodation. Workshop speakers who have difficulty in finding funding should contact the local organising committee to ask for the possibilities of a grant.
