Workshop on Logics for Resource Bounded Agents

7 - 11 August 2006 at ESSLLI 2006

Workshop description

Logics of knowledge and belief, as well as other attitudes such as desire or intention, have been extensively studied. However, most of the treatments of knowledge and belief make strong and idealised assumptions about the reasoners. For example, traditional epistemic logic say that agents know all logical consequences of their knowledge. Similarly, logics of action and strategic interaction are usually based on game theoretic models which assume perfect rationality. Models based on such assumptions can be used to describe ideal agents without bounds on resources such as time, memory, etc, but they fail to accurately describe non-ideal agents which are computationally bounded. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and discuss possible solutions to the problem of formally capturing the properties of knowledge, belief, action, etc. of non-idealised resource-bounded agents with colleagues and researchers who work in logic, computer science and other areas represented at ESSLLI.
