TARK 2013: 14th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge, Chennai, Jan 7-9, 2013: Call for papers

**Apologies for multiple posting**

*Call for Papers*    TARK 2013  14th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge  January 7-9, 2013  The Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India    Conference website: http://www.imsc.res.in/tark/      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, 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.    Invited Speakers  Pierpaolo Battigalli, Bocconi University  Lin Fangzhen, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology  Rineke Verbrugge, University of Groningen      Submissions are now invited to TARK 2013. Extended Abstracts can be  submitted here:  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tark2013    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.    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, and Mathematical Social Sciences, so that publication  of an extended abstract in TARK will not prejudice publication of a  full journal version.    TARK 2013 will precede the Indian Conference on Logics and  Applications (ICLA) held from January 10 - 12, 2013, also at the  Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Chennai, India.    TARK 2013 is the 14th conference of the TARK conference series.  Previous conferences have been held bi-annually around the world. The  most recent conference was held 2011 at the University of Groningen,  Netherlands, see http://www.philos.rug.nl/TARK2011/. The proceedings  of all previous TARK conferences can be accessed here  http://www.tark.org/.    TARK 2013 is the first TARK conference to be held in India. It is also  the first TARK conference to be held in January.
