Third International Workshop on Logics for Resource-Bounded Agents (LRBA 2010)

to be held as part of

Multi-Agent Logics, Languages and Organisations – Federated Workshops (MALLOW 2010)

Domaine Valpré in Lyon, France from the 30th of August to the 2nd 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 assumptions about reasoners. For example, traditional epistemic logic says 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 limitations)
  • other attitudes, such as desire, intention, etc., under bounded resources
  • paraconsistency
  • rational choice under bounded resources
  • games under bounded resources, e.g.,
  • games with bounded recall, e.g., bounded recall, incomplete information, limited awareness of the structure of the game
