What is LAM?

The aim of this series of workshops is to bring together active researchers in the areas of logics and other formal frameworks that can be used to describe and analyse dynamic or mobile systems. The main focus is on the field of logics and calculi for mobile agents, and multi-agent systems.

Many notions used in the theory of agents are derived from philosophy, logic, and linguistics (belief, desire, intention, speech act, etc.), and interdisciplinary discourse has proved fruitful for the advance of this domain. The workshop intends to encourage discussion and work across the boundaries of the traditional disciplines.

Logics and type systems with temporal or other kinds of modalities (relating to location, resource and/or security-awareness) play a central role in the semantic characterisation and verification of mobile agent systems. In the past two or three years, some logics have been proposed that would be able to handle certain aspects of these requirements, but there are still many open problems and research questions in the theory of such systems. The workshop is intended to showcase results and current work being undertaken in the areas outlined above with a focus on logics and other formalisms for the  specification and verification of dynamic, mobile systems.

Workshop Topics:

The main topics of interest include

  • specification and reasoning about agents, MAS, and mobile systems
  • modal and temporal logics
  • model-checking
  • treatment of location and resources in logics
  • security
  • type systems and static analysis
  • logic programming
  • concurrency theory with a focus on mobility or dynamics in agent systems.
