Frontiers of Rationality
and Decision

Final workshop of a European research network
funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research

29-31 August 2012
University of Groningen, The Netherlands


Formal models of theoretical rationality have seen major recent changes. The consequences for practical rationality have yet to be worked out. Over the past three years a network of experts has held a series of targeted research meetings to address this question.

In this final meeting, we aim to look ahead in time, and beyond the frontiers of research on formal philosophical approaches to reasoning and decision making. We have five guests: Branden Fitelson, Jeff Helzner, Simon Hutegger, Katya Tentori, and Kevin Zollman. There will also be presentations by many of the network participants listed below.



The research network for rationality and decision is led by Jan-Willem Romeijn and Olivier Roy. Members are: Johan van Benthem, Luc Bovens, Richard Bradley, Jacob Chandler, Michael Cozic, Franz Dietrich, Richard Dietz, Igor Douven, Stephan Hartmann, Martin van Hees, Brian Hill, Barteld Kooi, Hannes Leitgeb, Christian List, Eric Pacuit, Jeanne Peijnenburg, Wlodek Rabinowicz, Sonja Smets, Kai Spiekermann, Jan Sprenger, Katie Steele, Annika Wallin, and Jon Williamson.

Over the past years we have extended the network with a number of people: Alexandru Baltag, Seamus Bradley, Mareile Drechsler, Catarina Dutilh-Novaes, Patryk Dziurosz-Serafinowicz, Conrad Heilmann, Ronnie Hermens, Soroush Raffee Rad, and Rory Smead.



We invite submissions for a limited number of contributed talks. Please send an anonymized abstract of 1000 words to RatDec2012@rug.nl by April 15. The programme committee consists of the members of the research network. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by May 15 at the latest.
