Second announcement

December 29, 2023


The theme of the workshop is “Agency and intentionality: collective and individual”. Collective intentionality and collective agency, and closely related topics such as common knowledge, team reasoning, public announcement and other forms of group communication, are among the key issues that are being studied right now in a variety of frameworks.

Some of these frameworks are parsimonious extensions of frameworks for individual agency and individual intentionality, whereas others employ a more extended conceptual and ontological apparatus. And some of the analyses are primarily analytical and conceptual, while others are logical and formal. The main goal of the workshop is to bring these together to exchange results and discuss different views.
