The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy invites abstracts for the following event:

2nd Workshop on Decision Theory & the Future of Artificial Intelligence

MCMP, LMU Munich

July 26-28, 2018

This workshop will continue in the tradition established last year of bringing together philosophers, decision theorists, and AI researchers in order to promote research at the nexus between decision theory and AI. Our plan for the second installment is to make connections between decision theory and burgeoning research programs that may play a prominent role in the near future of the discipline – e.g., quantum information theory, social network analysis, and causal inference.

Call for papers:

We invite submissions for contributed talks in the form of a short abstract (up to 150 words) and an extended abstract (up to 1000 words) through the EasyChair submission system. The conference language is English; contributions in other languages will not be considered. The abstract should not contain any identifying information.

Dates and Deadines: 

Submission Deadline: 30 April 2018
Author Notification: 15 May 2018
