PROGIC 2023: Eleventh Workshop on Combining Probability and Logic https://progic2023.sites.uu.nl/
Utrecht, Netherlands, August 30 – September 1, 2023The special focus of PROGIC2023 is Knowledge representation and reasoning. Classically, logic and probability offer competing representations of partial or incomplete information, with the former assuming a qualitative perspective on uncertainty and the latter focusing on a quantitative account. Both provide their own policies for updating on new information, combining evidence from different sources, and acting under partial information.
We solicit submissions that bridge these two perspectives. These could, for instance, apply probabilistic or other quantitative tools to the study of logical systems or use logical frameworks, classical or substructural, for understanding probabilistic approaches. They may also apply to specific sub-areas, such as game theory, network theory, causal modelling or machine learning. We especially invite submissions that combine probability and logic for knowledge representation and reasoning broadly construed.
