Third InternationalWorkshop, LORI 2011
Guangzhou, China, October 10-13, 2011
This volume contains the papers presented at LORI-3, the Third International Workshop on Logic, Rationality and Interaction held during October 10–14, 2011 in Guangzhou, P.R. China.
There were 52 submissions. Each submission was reviewed by at least two
programme committee members. The committee decided to accept 25 full papers and 12 abstracts for poster presentation.
The First International Workshop on Logic, Rationality and Interaction
(LORI-I) was initially proposed by Dutch and Chinese logicians; it took place in Beijing in August 2007, with participation by researchers from the fields of artificial intelligence, game theory, linguistics, logic, philosophy, and cognitive science. The workshop led to great advances in mutual understanding, both academically and culturally, between Chinese and non-Chinese logicians. The Second International Workshop on Logic, Rationality and Interaction (LORI-II) took place in Chongqing, China, during October 6–11, 2009. The programme of these previous LORI workshops can be found at http://www.golori.org/, a web portal for the research community on logic and rational interaction.
The LORI-3 workshop followed the theme of previous LORI events and
mainly centered on logical approaches to knowledge representation, game theory, linguistics, and cognitive science. More than half of the papers focused on modelling and reasoning about knowledge and belief, another one-third covered game theory and related matters.
LORI-3 took place on the south campus of Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, P.R. China, and was hosted by the Institute of Logic and Cognition (ILC). The ILC is one of the key research institutes of the Ministry of Education of China, and is dedicated to exploring the intersection between logic, cognitive science and computer science. The institute also contributed a lot to promoting cooperations and academic studies between Chinese and non-Chinese logicians, gaining increasing reputation in the international communities.
The programme chairs of LORI-3 are greatly in debt to the support of ILC in making this workshop happen. In particular, we are indebted to ILC member Yuping Shen, who single-handedly produced these proceedings. We further
wish to acknowledge the continuous support of LORI standing committee members Fenrong Liu and Johan van Benthem. Finally, we acknowledge the use of EasyChair, with its wonderful facility to check LNCS style file compliance and assist in the production of the proceedings. This greatly reduced our work in publishing the programme.
