[PVS] TARK 2013: 14th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge, Chennai, Jan 7-9, 2013: Call for papers

**Apologies for multiple posting**

*Call for Papers*

TARK 2013
14th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge
January 7-9, 2013
The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India

Conference website: http://www.imsc.res.in/tark/

About the Conference

The mission of the TARK conferences is to bring together researchers
from a wide variety of fields, including Artificial Intelligence,
Cryptography, Distributed Computing, Economics and Game Theory,
Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology, in order to further our
understanding of interdisciplinary issues involving reasoning about
rationality and knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, semantic models for knowledge, belief, awareness and
uncertainty, bounded rationality and resource-bounded reasoning,
commonsense epistemic reasoning, epistemic logic, epistemic game
theory, knowledge and action, applications of reasoning about
knowledge and other mental states, belief revision, and foundations of
multi-agent systems.

Invited Speakers
Pierpaolo Battigalli, Bocconi University
Lin Fangzhen, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Rineke Verbrugge, University of Groningen

Submissions are now invited to TARK 2013. Extended Abstracts can be
submitted here:

Strong preference will be given to papers whose topic is of interest
to an interdisciplinary audience, and papers should be accessible to
such an audience. Papers will be held to the usual high standards of
research publications. In particular, they should 1) contain enough
information to enable the program committee to identify the main
contribution of the work; 2) explain the significance of the work --
its novelty and its practical or theoretical implications; and 3)
include comparisons with and references to relevant literature.

Abstracts should be no longer than ten double-spaced pages (4,000
words). Optional technical details such as proofs may be included in
an appendix. An email address of the contact author should be
included. Papers arriving late or departing significantly from these
guidelines risk immediate rejection.  One author of each accepted
paper will be expected to present the paper at the conference.

Economists should be aware that special arrangements have been made
with certain economics journals (in particular, with International
Journal of Game Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of
Economic Theory, and Mathematical Social Sciences, so that publication
of an extended abstract in TARK will not prejudice publication of a
full journal version.

TARK 2013 will precede the Indian Conference on Logics and
Applications (ICLA) held from January 10 - 12, 2013, also at the
Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Chennai, India.

TARK 2013 is the 14th conference of the TARK conference series.
Previous conferences have been held bi-annually around the world. The
most recent conference was held 2011 at the University of Groningen,
Netherlands, see http://www.philos.rug.nl/TARK2011/. The proceedings
of all previous TARK conferences can be accessed here

TARK 2013 is the first TARK conference to be held in India. It is also
the first TARK conference to be held in January.
