In recent years we are witnessing a cognitive turn in logic. It results in inclusion of some areas of cognitive science, psychology and computer science into its hard core. Consequently, logic becomes capable of modelling actual cognitive activity of real life agents.
This turn does not create a rival for the mathematical logic: it forms a next step in the development of logic. It also reminds that for many centuries logic stood in a close and natural relationship to the science of actual reasoning processes.
Poznań Reasoning Week, consisting of three conferences, aims at bringing together experts from various fields, whose research focus on reasoning processes and their modelling from three perspectives:
- the interplay of logic and cognition (Logic and Cognition 2016);
- formal modelling of reasoning and argumentation (14th ArgDiap);
- natural question processing (QuestPro 2016).
