This colloquium addresses the design and use of models to represent the beliefs and knowledge of agents as well as changes in the beliefs and knowledge of social communities.

This colloquium unites researchers who use a variety of formal tools to study the process of belief formation, belief revision and knowledge updating in social communities. We focus on multi-agent scenarios centreed around such topics as belief merge, social-epistemic influence, group knowledge, and belief-polarisation.

Our approach will be interdisciplinary in nature and consider insights originating in such areas as Logic, Game Theory, Belief Revision Theory, Formal Epistemology, Social Science, Network Theory, Cognitive Science and AI.

With a master class on 30 May.
