*Call for Papers*

TARK 2015
15th Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge
June 4-6, 2015
Carnegie Mellon University, USA

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.

TARK 2015 is the 15th conference of the TARK conference series.
Previous conferences have been held bi-annually around the world. The
most recent conference was held in 2013 at the Institute of Mathematical
Sciences, Chennai, India, see

Invited Speakers:

Robin Clark, University of Pennsylvania, USA
Simon Huttegger, University of California, Irvine, USA
Sarit Kraus, Bar-Ilan University, Israel
Marciano Siniscalchi, Northwestern University, USA

Submissions are now invited to TARK 2015. Extended Abstracts can be
submitted here:

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 12 pages (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

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).

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