Call for online participation: “Reasoning and uncertainty: probabilistic, logical, and psychological perspectives”

August 9-10, 2022

The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together philosophers,
probability theorists, logicians, artificial intelligence researchers, and
psychologists to discuss selected problems in the broad domains of reasoning
and uncertainty, including inferences about conditionals, inconsistency, and
coherence, how to argue and make decisions rationally, and how to represent and
manage uncertainty and incomplete knowledge. We also aim to discuss
philosophical foundations and methodological questions concerning reasoning
research. For example, whether and how combining conceptual, formal (like
(non-classical) logic, (coherence-based) probability logic, artificial
intelligence models), and empirical research methods may cross-fertilise
reasoning research on normative and descriptive dimensions.
