Logic and Cognition Pre-Conference Workshop
March 2, 2019, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India.


A pre-conference workshop on Logic and Cognition will be held on March 2, 2019. The workshop will focus on applying modal logics to analyze psychological tasks involving mental states, in particular:

  1. the paradigmatic false belief tasks, and
  2. higher order social reasoning tasks involving strategic games.

The organizers are interested in both model-theoretic and proof-theoretic approaches. Before describing recent advances in these fields, the organizers plan on giving a brief introduction to relevant modal logics as well as relevant notions from psychology and cognitive science, thus making the workshop self-contained for a broad range of logicians, whatever the background: Computer science, linguistics, philosophy or mathematics.
