Call for Papers

The Call for Papers is also available in text format.

By organising this workshop, we hope to stimulate research on social choice, mechanism design, the aggregation of preferences, judgments and beliefs, as well as public deliberation amongst logicians. At the same time, we hope to stimulate a closer engagement with different logics amongst researchers in social choice theory and computational social choice. We also hope to highlight the broad range of potential applications for this kind of research, ranging from artificial intelligence and multiagent systems all the way to political science and ethics.

Topics of interest therefore include (but are not limited to):

  • logic and social choice theory
  • logic and mechanism design
  • logic and games
  • judgment aggregation
  • belief merging
  • logical models of group deliberation
  • logic-based preference modelling
  • argumentation and group decision making
  • formal specification and verification of group decision mechanisms
  • automated reasoning for collective decision making
  • social software
  • applications in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems
  • applications in political science and ethics

All submissions will be reviewed by the programme committee. We solicit a variety of types of papers: technical papers describing original and unpublished results, position papers outlining a research agenda or highlighting important open problems, and papers reporting on work in progress.

Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes, to be made available online. Depending on the nature of the submissions received, we will consider editing a special journal issue (or similar) after the workshop (with a separate Call for Papers).
