TARK 2015

Fifteenth conference on
Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge

June 4-6, 2015
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA


Scope and Mission: 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.

Submissions : are now invited to TARK 2015. Extended Abstracts can be submitted here .
The deadline for submissions is February 20, 2015.
The deadline for submissions is February 28, 2015, Anywhere on Earth .

Content : 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.

Style : Abstracts should be no longer than 5,000 words. Optional technical details such as proofs may be included in an appendix. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present the paper at the conference.
To format your paper please use: LaTeX2e - Tighter Alternate style

Note: The 5000 word limit is to ensure that the reviewers can read and express an opinion on the submission within the short time, though the submission format compresses the paper considerably. Please ensure that the main text for the reviewers stays within this limit.

TARK reviewing is not double-blind, so author names can be included in the submission.

Special note : While economics papers follow the same submission guidelines for review purposes, they can specify that only a short abstract be included for the Proceedings (with a link to a full working paper available online).

Proceedings : The proceedings of all previous TARK conferences can be accessed here . The proceedings of TARK 2015 will also be open access and available online.
