Logic and Probability have a long partnership, having survived together as a legacy from Leibniz, Bernoulli, De Morgan, Boole, Bolzano, Peirce, Keynes, Carnap, Popper and several other contemporary thinkers. According to this tradition, the problem of generalizing logical consequence relations raises questions that transcends both logic and probability, as a consequence of modern logical pluralism. This also leads to a probability pluralism, represented by nonstandard theories of probability (i.e., theories of probability based on nonclassical logics) that open new avenues and pose new challenges to theory and to applications.
All such tendencies and areas of investigation are naturally generalized to possibility logics, necessity logics and other credal calculi that extend probability, considering that belief can be regarded as generalized probability or as evidence. This workshop intends to contribute to the stateoftheart of such research topics, emphasizing the connections between all such topics.
Call for papers
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts will be refereed through a peerreview process. Manuscripts should be submitted in agreement with the UNILOG'2018 guidelines.
Papers are invited in the following (nonexclusive) topics:
 Probabilistic generalizations of logic. Includiing nonclassical logics
 Generalizations of probability measures (as credal calculi and others)
 Interpretations of probability,
 Philosophy of probability
 Probabilistic argumentation and inference, and their generalizations
 Questions on foundations of probability, including conditional probabilities
Abstracts (one page) should be sent by October 5, 2017 via email to:
