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, and uncertainty, bounded rationality and resource-bounded reasoning, commonsense epistemic reasoning, epistemic logic, 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 XI. 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 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. For submission, click on the Submission tab at http://www.tark.be.

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, Econometrica, Theory and Decision, and Mathematical Social Sciences) so that publication of an extended abstract in TARK will not prejudice publication of a full journal version.
