There will be a workshop on reasoning about other minds on August 4
and 5 in Groningen.  (Description below)    (01)

Unless you're already near Groningen, it may be hard to get there
in time.  But you can download some of the papers:    (02)

Following this workshop is a conference on advances in modal logic:    (04)

Reasoning about other minds: Logical and cognitive perspectives    (07)

This workshop aims to shed light on models of social reasoning that
take into account realistic resource bounds. People reason about other
people’s mental states in order to understand and predict the others’
behavior. This capability to reason about others’ knowledge, beliefs
and intentions is often referred to as ‘theory of mind’.    (08)

Idealized rational agents are capable of recursion in their social
reasoning, and can reason about phenomena like common knowledge. Such
idealized social reasoning has been modeled by modal logics such as
epistemic logic and BDI (belief, goal, intention) logics. However, in
real-world situations, many people seem to lose track of such recursive
social reasoning after only a few levels.    (09)

Cognitive scientists build computational models of social reasoning,
for example, recently an “inverse planning” model based on Bayesian
inference frameworks has proven successful in modeling human inferences
about the goals and beliefs underlying other people’s observed
behavior.  The workshop provides a forum for researchers who attempt
to analyze, understand and model how resource-bounded agents reason
about other minds.    (010)
