About the Conference

The mission of the TARK conferences is to bring together researchers from a wide variety of fields, including Artificial Intelligence, Cryptography, Distributed Computing, Economics and Game Theory, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology, in order to further our understanding of interdisciplinary issues involving reasoning about rationality and knowledge. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, semantic models for knowledge, belief, and uncertainty, bounded rationality and resource-bounded reasoning, commonsense epistemic reasoning, epistemic logic, knowledge and action, applications of reasoning about knowledge and other mental states, belief revision, and foundations of multi-agent systems.


Please consider submitting to TARK-XI. Strong preference will be given to papers whose topic is of interest to an interdisciplinary audience, and papers should be accessible to such an audience. Papers will be held to the usual high standards of research publications. In particular, they should 1) contain enough information to enable the program committee to identify the main contribution of the work; 2) explain the significance of the work -- its novelty and its practical or theoretical implications; and 3) include comparisons with and references to relevant literature.


Abstracts should be no longer than ten double-spaced pages (4,000 words). Optional technical details such as proofs may be included in an appendix. An email address of the contact author should be included. Papers arriving late or departing significantly from these guidelines risk immediate rejection. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present the paper at the conference. Please submit your paper in PDF using the submission site.

Journal publication

Economists should be aware that special arrangements have been made with certain economics journals (in particular, with International Journal of Game Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of Economic Theory, Econometrica, Theory and Decision, and Mathematical Social Sciences) so that publication of an extended abstract in TARK will not prejudice publication of a full journal version.
