IDAS@ESSLLI 2014 : Information Dynamics in Artificial Societies Workshop @ ESSLLI 2014
Call For Papers
First Call for Papers - Deadline: April 30, 2014
International Workshop on Information Dynamics
in Artificial Societies (IDAS@ESSLLI2014)
Tubingen (Germany) - August 18-22, 2014
Describing intelligent agents with the help of cognitive and social notions is now well established in the domain of artificial intelligence. In the recent years, concepts such as trust, reputation, delegation, commitment and convention have been proposed in order to describe how artificial agents interact in an artificial society or in a virtual organization.
This workshop aimed at discussing formal theories and logics of information dynamics—including formal theories and logics of belief and preference change, learning theory, social choice theory and judgement aggregation—in order to better understand:
- how information circulates in an artificial society by direct interaction, communication, signaling, etc.;
- how it influences the individual cognitive attitudes (e.g., beliefs, preferences, trust) and the collective attitudes (e.g., mutual expectations and beliefs).
The workshop is an event of ESSLLI-14 and will take place on August 18-22 2014, Tubingen, Germany. For more details about ESSLLI: http://www.esslli2014.info/
Call for submissions
This workshop aims at discussing formal theories and logics of information dynamics, including formal theories and logics of belief and preference change, learning theory, social choice theory and judgement aggregation. Its scope includes not only the technical aspects of logics, but also multidisciplinary aspects from social sciences (economics, social psychology and sociology), social epistemology and linguistics. By focusing on the foundational issues of information dynamics, the workshop will provide a better understanding of key issues such as: are the belief change techniques relevant for modelling cognitive state dynamics? What is the role of communication in trust's breakdown and repair? How information propagates in a social network or in a multi-agent system? Are existing formal theories of belief change and existing formal theories of learning relevant for modelling the dynamics of conventions?
Topics of interest include:
- Belief change
- Formal theories of lying and deception
- Social choice theory
- Judgement aggregation
- Reasoning about action and change
- Theories of signalling
- Theories of conventions
- Learning theory
- Epistemic game theory
- Speech act theory
- Dynamic epistemic logic (DEL)
- Logics of agency
- Preference dynamics
- Theories of delegation
- Social network theory
As shown by the previous topics, the workshop has an multidisciplinary nature, it covers not only research in AI but also research in economics, philosophy of interaction, sociology, social psychology and linguistics. It reflects the aim of ESSLLI to foster interdisciplinary discussion.

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. Submitted papers might be at the time of submission under review or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Papers should not exceed 8 pages and are due by April 30, 2014. All papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system:
The proceedings of IDAS@ESSLLI-14 workshop will be published in an informal way on the workshop website. An author of each accepted paper is required to register at ESSLLI and present the paper at ITDAS@ESSLLI-14.
A special issue of the Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics (JANCL) is planned based on selected papers presented at the workshop, of which full versions will be independently reviewed.
Submission deadline April 30, 2014

Workshop August 18-22, 2014
This workshop will form part of the coordination activities of SINTELNET (http://www.sintelnet.eu/), the European Network for Social intelligence (FP7-286370), within the Working Group co-chaired by Emiliano Lorini.
The European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) is an annual event under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI) and brings together logicians, linguists, computer scientists, and philosophers to study language, logic, and information, and their interconnections. ESSLLIs attract around 500 participants from all over the world.
There will be about 50 courses at introductory and advanced levels, as well as workshops, invited lectures and a student session (August 11-August22).
