CfP Special Issue of JLC on “Combining Probability and Logic”

We invite submissions for a Special Issue on “Combining Probability and Logic”, to be published with Journal of Logic and Computation: https://academic.oup.com/logcom/pages/cfp-combining-probability-and-logic.

Classically, logic and probability offer competing representations of partial or incomplete information, with the former assuming a qualitative perspective on uncertainty and the latter focusing on a quantitative account. Both provide their own policies for updating on new information, combining evidence from different sources, and acting under partial information.

We solicit submissions of original papers that bridge these two perspectives. These could, for instance, apply probabilistic or other quantitative tools to the study of logical systems or use logical frameworks, classical or substructural, for understanding probabilistic approaches. They may also apply to specific sub-areas, such as game theory, network theory, causal modelling or machine learning. We especially invite submissions that combine probability and logic for knowledge representation and reasoning broadly construed.

The Special Issue is related to the topics of the conference Progic 2023: The Eleventh Workshop on Combining Probability and Logic (https://progic2023.sites.uu.nl/). Workshop participants, as well as other authors are invited to submit contributions.

Submissions should be written in English and are expected to contain relevant new logical results that are of significant interest to a substantial number of logicians. All submissions must comply with the submission guidelines of Journal of Logic and Computation (https://academic.oup.com/logcom/pages/General_Instructions) and will be peer reviewed according to the standards of the Journal.

How to submit

Submissions should be sent to Jane Spurr at jane at janespurr.net<mailto:jane at janespurr.net> with “JLCs-Progic submission” in the subject line.

The deadline for submitting full manuscripts is March 31, 2024.
