Workshop Description:

 The roots of logic go back to antiquity, where it was mostly used as a
 tool for analyzing human argumentation. In the 19th century Gottlob
 Frege, one of the founders of modern logic and analytic philosophy,
 introduced anti-psychologism in the philosophy of  mathematics. In the
 following years anti-psychologism, the view that the nature
 of mathematical truth is independent of human ideas, was one of the
 philosophical driving forces behind the success of mathematical logic.
 During the same period in the 19th century, also modern psychology
 (Helmholtz, Wundt) was born. However, Frege's notion of
 anti-psychologism often stood in the way of a potential merge of the
 disciplines and led to a significant separation between logic and
 psychology research agendas and methods. Only since the 1960s,
 together with the growth of cognitive science inspired by the "mind as
 computer" metaphor, the two disciplines have started to interact more
 and more. Today, we finally observe an increase in the collaborative
 effort between logicians, computer scientists, linguists, cognitive
 scientists, and psychologists.

 We plan to discuss the empirical research motivated by logical
 theories as well as logics inspired by experimental studies. As a
 result, we hope to contribute towards an increase in collaboration
 between logicians and cognitive scientists.

 The meeting is partially sponsored by a Vici grant NWO-277-80-001

 Invited speakers:
  Paul Egré
 Iris van Rooij

 The workshop will take place as part of the 24th European Summer
 School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2012):

 Submissions Details:
  Please send your submission in PDF format, at most
 10 pages in LNCS style, 10 pts, bibliography included (see
 needed due to space reasons, technical material such as proofs may be
 added in an appendix of at most 5 pages. The PDF files have to be
 uploaded online via the workshop's submission website:

 The author notification date is April 15, 2012. Prior to the workshop,
 speakers will have the opportunity to submit an extended abstract for
