CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Second Workshop on
PRACTICAL REASONING AND RATIONALITY
April 7-8, 1997
University of Manchester, EnglandA comprehensive logical
theory of practical reasoning and rationality will include theoretical reasoning
(reasoning about what is the case, involving informational attitudes such as
beliefs and knowledge), practical reasoning (reasoning about what to do,
involving motivational attitudes such as desires, goals, intentions, and
obligations), and reasoning about actions and their effects.
Current work has tended to focus on particular aspects of the problem;
including nonmonotonic logics, belief revision, probabilistic logics,
argumentation, logics for belief, action, obligation, and preference, and logics
for reasoning about action and change. This workshop aims to promote the
integration of this work.
Programme The programme consists
of talks by invited speakers, paper presentations and panel discussions.
