ITDAS@IJCAI 2013 : International Workshop on Information and Trust Dynamics in Artificial Societies (ITDAS@IJCAI2013)
Call For Papers
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 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 judgment aggregation—
in order to better understand: - how information circulates in an artificial society by direct interaction, communication, signaling, etc.; how it affects trust; - how it contributes to the construction of reputation and collective attitudes (e.g., mutual beliefs, social agreements), and to the emergence of conventions.
The workshop is an associated event of IJCAI-13 and will take place on August 3-5 2013, Beijing, China.
Call for Papers
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 judgment aggregation. Its 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 (i) information dynamics and (ii) trust representation, the workshop will provide a better understanding of
key issues such as: are the belief change techniques relevant for modeling trust 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? What are the consequences in terms of reputation and trust dynamics?
Are existing formal theories of belief change and existing formal theories of learning relevant for modeling the dynamics of conventions?
Topics of interest include:
Reasoning about trust and reputation
Formal theories of lying and deception
Social choice theory
Reasoning about action and change
Trust in virtual organizations
Theories of signaling
Theories of conventions
Epistemic game theory
Speech act theory
Dynamic epistemic logic (DEL)
Logics of agency
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.
