A Course on Epistemic Game Theory

From May 12 – May 23, 2014, the EPICENTER will give a two-week intensive course on Epistemic Game Theory at Maastricht University.

Audience: This course is primarily meant for master and PhD students at all universities in the Netherlands and abroad. But researchers are also very welcome.

Instructors: The members of the EPICENTER: Christian Bach, Angie Mounir, Christian Nauerz, Andrés Perea and Elias Tsakas.

Register? Please send an E-mail to Andrés Perea at: course@epicenter.name

Master and PhD students at Maastricht University should also register via the course Capita Selecta: Econometrics, Mathematical Economics and Operations Research (EBC4011). Officially, this course is part of Capita Selecta.

Book:  The first seven days of the course will be based on the book Epistemic Game Theory: Reasoning and Choice, by Andrés Perea.

LORI-4: Logic, Rationality and Interaction

The fourth international workshop on logic, rationality and interaction will take place in a beautiful city–Hangzhou, China on October 9 – 12, 2013.

The LORI workshop series aims at bringing together researchers working on a wide variety of logic-related fields concerned with the understanding of rationality and interaction. These include Game Theory and Decision Theory, Philosophy and Epistemology, Linguistics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. The series aims at fostering a view of Logic as an interdisciplinary endeavor, and supports the creation of a Chinese community of interdisciplinary researchers.

Submissions of contributed papers bearing on any of the broad themes of the LORI workshop series are invited.

Submissions: papers can be submitted via Easychair (https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=lori4 or swiftmoney.org)

*Important dates*:
• Paper submission: June 1, 2013
• Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2013
• Camera ready version: August 1, 2013
• Conference dates: October 9 – 12, 2013

CFP – FEW 2013 Announcement

We are very pleased to announce that FEW 2013 will be co-located with The Rutgers Epistemology Conference(REC), which is also celebrating its 10th meeting.

Both meetings will take place at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick.

FEW will take place on May 8 and 9 and REC will take place on May 10 and 11. There will be a “bridge” session on the morning of the 10th. The “bridge speaker” will be Brian Weatherson.

The FEW schedule will be much shorter (and more relaxed) than usual. We will have the following nine (9) invited speakers, including our “bridge” speaker (there will be no contributed papers this year).
• Rachael Briggs
• Jim Joyce 
• Matt Kotzen
• Hannes Leitgeb
• Christian List
• Sherri Roush
• Robert Stalnaker
• Katya Tentori
• Brian Weatherson
If you’d like to serve as a “chair” or a “discussant” for one of the FEW talks (so that your name can go on the online schedule, which would probably allow you to use research money to cover your trip), please email me and we’ll work something out.

We hope that FEW participants will stick around for REC. The invited speakers at REC (aside from the “bridge” speaker) will be:
• Tamar Szabo Gendler
• Sanford Goldberg
• Matthew McGrath
• Susanna Siegel
• David Sosa
And, the discussants for REC will be:
• Adam Elga
• Pascal Engel
• Imogen Dickie 
• Baron Reed
We hope you’ll be able to join us this year — at the intersection of formal and traditional philosophy.

CFP: 40th Annual Meeting of the Society for Exact Philosophy

The 2012 meeting of the Society for Exact Philosophy will be held 11-13 Oct 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. SEP 2012 is co-sponsored by Ohio State University.

Call for Papers
Paper submissions in all areas of analytic philosophy are welcomed.
Paper submission deadline: July 1st, 2012.

“The SEP is dedicated to providing sustained discussion among researchers who believe that rigorous methods have a place in philosophical investigations.” Information on the Society and its previous meetings is on the web at SEP Home.

Submission Instructions. Authors are requested to submit their papers according to the following guidelines: 1) Papers should be prepared for blind refereeing, 2) put into PDF file format, and 3) sent as an email attachment to the address given below — where 4) the subject line of the submission email should include the key-phrase “SEP submission”, and 5) the body text of the email message should constitute a cover page for the submission by including i) return email address, ii) author’s name, iii) affiliation, iv) paper title, and v) a short abstract.
Electronic submissions should be sent to <the SEP conference address>

Nota Bene. All submissions will receive email confirmation of receipt. If your submission does not soon result in such an email confirmation, please send an inquiry either to the above address or to the local organizer.

Length. You should plan on having 40 minutes presentation time. We suppose this to be the principal guide in judging the length of the paper you send. It is the norm at SEP meetings for speakers to present rather than read their papers (and this is a virtue), so it is to be expected that presentation time and page length will only loosely correlate.

That said, do please bear in mind that a referee needs to both grasp the content of your paper and be able to readily envisage how you could present it in the available time. So, if your paper runs long, you might for this reason want to prepare a shortened version.

(If you prefer a page number specification to this human guideline: fifteen double-spaced pages is a common norm for forty minute talks.)

CFP: The Constructive in Logic and Applications

May 23-25, 2012, detailed program here.
CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Constructivity is fundamental to the application of mathematics to the real world, whether in the exact sciences, the social sciences, or engineering. Constructive logics supporting this tradition have flourished over the last century. This conference is a celebration of the past and future of the constructive tradition. Distinguished logician Sergei Artemov is 60. He has made fundamental contributions exploring constructivity in logic, computer science, epistemology, game theory, and other areas. With this conference we honor his work, and by extension a subject whose content he has elucidated and whose boundaries he has expanded.

Scientific Committee: Anil Nerode (Cornell) and Melvin Fitting (CUNY)
