Logic and Cognition

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. We are interested in both model-theoretic and proof-theoretic approaches.

Before describing recent advances in these fields, we 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.

Abstracts can beon topics relating any aspect of logic and cognition, for example,applications of logic to the analysis of actual human reasoning. The extended abstract should clearly state the contributions and provide significant details. Submissions should be sent as a pdf file to both sujata AT isichennai DOT res DOT in and torben AT ruc DOT dk.
