Human and artificial Rationality (HAR-2023) - 19-22 Septembre 2023

Call for papers

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to the 2nd international conference on Human and Artificial Rationality (HAR 2023), which will take place in Paris, France.

This year’s conference will be held at the Institut de Philosophie Comparée (IPC) in Paris and is now open for the submission of extended abstracts for individual talks.

The conference on Human and Artificial Rationality’s main focus is on computational approaches of human reasoning (in the broad sense, including judgments, decision-making, problem-solving, pragmatics, …), on its criticism, and on how human-like artificial reasoning can be. Regarding human rationality, this does not only include formal models of rationality, but also the investigation of the different factors that influence or direct human reasoning (including automatic processes and deliberate thinking). Regarding artificial rationality, this does not simply include artificial computational models, but how they relate to human reasoning. Another area of interest are the rationality processes involved in the interaction of artificial and human agents.
