The Third Workshop on Logics for Resource-Bounded Agents (LRBA)
(with special emphasis on awareness and limited reasoning)


To be held as part of Multi-Agent Logics, Languages, and Organisations
-- Federated Workshops (MALLOW 2010) in Domaine Valpr, Lyon, France,
from the 30th of August to the 3rd of September, 2010


Formal models of knowledge and belief, as well as other attitudes such
as desire or intention, have been extensively studied. However, most
of the treatments of knowledge and belief make strong and idealised
assumptions about the reasoners. For example, traditional epistemic
logic say that agents know all logical consequences of their
knowledge. Similarly, logics of action and strategic interaction are
usually based on game theoretic models which assume perfect
rationality. Models based on such assumptions can be used to describe
ideal agents without bounds on resources such as time, memory, etc,
but they fail to accurately describe non-ideal agents which are
computationally bounded. The workshop aims to provide a forum for
discussing possible solutions to the problem of formally capturing the
properties of knowledge, belief, action, etc. of non-idealised
resource-bounded agents. We are particularly interested in formal
models of agents' limited reasoning and (un)awareness (there will be a
publication on this topic following the workshop, see below).


Topics include, but are not limited to, logical models of:

* limited awareness and unawareness
* logically non-omniscient agents in general
* explicit knowledge and belief
* algorithmic knowledge
* temporal logics of reasoning
* active logics
* knowledge and belief of reasoners with bounds on reasoning time,
memory, or other resource bounds (e.g.  bandwidth, sensing
* other attitudes, such as desire, intention, etc., under bounded
* paraconsistency
* rational choice under bounded resources
* games under bounded resources, e.g. bounded recall, incomplete
  information, limited awareness of the structure of the game
