Model-Based Reasoning 2015 ITALY (MBR015_ITALY)


PROGRAM The conference will deal with the logical, epistemological, and cognitive aspects of modeling practices employed in science, technology, and cognitive science, including logical and computational models of such practices. We solicit papers that examine the role of abduction, visualization, simulation, and other aspects in model-based reasoning from philosophical, logical, epistemological, historical, sociological, psychological, or computational perspectives. The conference is also devoted to examine the impact of Model-Based Reasoning research in the enhancement of various kinds of human cognitive skills, mental, hybrid, manipulative, etc.

RELEVANT RESEARCH AREAS We call for papers that cover topics pertaining to model-based reasoning in science and human cognition from the following list:
- general theoretical and cognitive issues
- models as fictions, distortions, credible worlds
- models and games of make-believe
- ontology of models
- affordances, artifacts, and model-based reasoning
- brain, neuroscience, and model-based reasoning
- abduction
- logical analyses related to model-based reasoning
- games, interactions, and linear inferential processes
- visual, spatial, imagistic modeling and reasoning
- simulative modeling
- the role of diagrammatic representations
- computational models of visual and simulative reasoning
- causal and counterfactual reasoning in model construction
- visual analogy
- thought experimenting
- manipulative reasoning
- distributed model-based reasoning
- distributed cognition, embodiment, and model-based reasoning
- models and inferences of rationality and decision making
- model-based reasoning in scientific discovery and conceptual change
- model-based reasoning and ethics
- model-based reasoning and semiotics
- model-based reasoning in scientific explanation
- model-based medical diagnosis
- model-based reasoning in engineering and robotics
- model-based reasoning and technological artifacts
