** CALL FOR PAPERS -- NEW DEADLINE 9 JULY 2004 ** LOGIC, GAMES AND PHILOSOPHY: FOUNDATIONAL PERSPECTIVES Prague International Colloquium www.flu.cas.cz/Logica/Aconf/col2004.html Organised by Department of Logic, Institute of Philosophy, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and Department of Philosophy, University of Helsinki 28 September – 1 October 2004, Prague, Czech Republic SYNOPSIS Games, like logics, are tools for investigating the world, language, and their relationship. Semantic, dialogic, evolutionary, interrogative, argumentative, and pragmatic methods have been included into the toolkit. Following the recent increase in investment on games and game-theoretic methods in logic, language, computation and communication, we still need a better understanding of the possibilities of forming converging methodologies underlying these diverse contemporary currents. The purpose of the Prague Conference on Logic, Games and Philosophy: Foundational Perspectives is to explore the interfaces between logic and games with the eye on philosophical, methodological and foundational issues. Preference is given to papers that make a definite contribution to philosophical, methodological and foundational issues underlying game-theoretic approaches to logical, computational or linguistic research, including relevant historical and philosophical issues on the Theory of Games itself. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: * Wittgenstein, C. S. Peirce * Language Games * Game-Theoretic Semantics * Dialogue Games * Interrogative Games/Philosophy of Science * Evolutionary Games * Diachronicity/Semantic-Pragmatic Change * Game-Theoretic Methods in Logic, Language, Computation, Communication Among the invited speakers of the colloquium are Mathieu Marion (Québec à Montréal), Shahid Rahman (Lille 3), Gabriel Sandu (Helsinki), Wim Veldman (Nijmegen). Potential contributors are asked to submit a two page (including references) abstract; the *new* deadline is ** 9 July 2004 ** Abstracts are to be submitted by e-mail (preferably as PDF, PS or MS Word files) prepared for anonymous reviewing. (To prevent problems caused by e-mail failures, the receipt of every abstract will be confirmed within one week.) Notification of acceptance will be distributed by 15 July 2004. Contributed papers are scheduled for approx. 40 minutes (including discussion). Please direct your abstracts to: lanna_(on)_site.cas.cz The proceedings of the Prague International Colloquium will be offered to Kluwer Academic Publishers for inclusion in their series Logic, Epistemology and the Unity of Science (the papers will be reviewed).
