Johan van Benthem Johan van Benthem
Logic, Agency, and Games
Dr. van Benthem is a University Professor emeritus of pure and applied logic at the University of Amsterdam, Henry Waldgrave Stuart professor of philosophy at Stanford University, and Changjiang national professor of humanities at Tsinghua University Beijing. He has worked in modal logic, temporal logic, logical semantics and syntax of natural language, dynamic logics of information, computation, and agency. His current main interest is the theme of intelligent interaction, at the interface of logic, computer science, cognitive science, and game theory. His books include The Logic of Time (1983), Modal Logic and Classical Logic (1985), Essays in Logical Semantics (1986), "Language in Action" (1991), Exploring Logical Dynamics (1996), Modal Logic for Open Minds (2010), Logical Dynamics of Information and Interaction (2011) and Logic in Games (2014). In 1996 he received the Dutch national NWO Spinoza Premium for his research.

Dynamic Semantics

Dr. Bittner is a Professor of linguistics at Rutgers University - New Brunswick. She has conducted fieldwork on Kalaallisut (an Eskimo-Aleut spoken in Greenland) since the 1970s, with focus on mood and evidentiality. Her research covers semantics, syntax, and the syntax-semantics interface. Dr. Bittner is an expert on Dynamic Semantics, and has published numerous papers in this area. Her books include Temporality: Universals and Variation (2014) and Case, Scope, and Binding (1994). Dr. Bittner's work has been funded by the NSF grant "Temporal Anaphora in Dynamic Cross-Linguistic Semantics" and "Syntax and Semantics of the Ergative Construction" (for joint work with Ken Hale. The graduate students that Dr. Bittner has advised have done on to be appointed to tenure-track positions at top Linguistics programs, including University of California - Santa Cruz and Cornell University.
Reinhard Muskens
Reinhard Muskens
Multi-Modal Logic

Dr. Muskens is an Associate Professor of Logic and Language in the Tilburg Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science at Tilburg University. His research focuses on the logic of ordinary language. His particular interest is in the question of how linguistic expressions manage to carry meaning. A closely related interest is in the use of logic to model aspects of context and social interaction. He is the principal investigator of a project "Towards Logics that Model Natural Reasoning" that is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. His published books include Meaning and Partiality and the co-edited Computing Meaning: Volume 1.

An Introduction to Description Logics Techniques, Properties, and Applications

Dr. Sattler is a Professor in the Information Management Group within the School of Computer Science of the University of Manchester, and the Director of Postgraduate Studies. She has been working on various aspects of Description Logics (DLs) and related logics for over 20 years. Together with Ian Horrocks and others, she has designed the DL that forms the logical basis of the ontology language OWL as well as the tableau-based algorithms for deciding the core reasoning problems of these logics. Recently, her research focuses on related problems that play a major role when using OWL or DLs to model non-trivial knowledge, e.g., module extraction and ontology decomposition, entailment explanation, ontology diffing, and learning from ontologies.

Evolution and Learning Dynamics in Signaling Games

Dr. Skyrms is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Logic and Philosophy Science at the University of California, Irvine and a Professor of Philosophy at Stanford University. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and one of two living philosophers to be elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences. His research interests are in the evolution of conventions and the social contract. He is also interested in inductive logic, decision theory, rational deliberation, the metaphysics of logical atomism, causality, and Truth. He has published many books including From Zeno to Arbitrage: Essays on Quantity, Coherence, and Induction, The Stag Hunt and the Evolution of Social Structure, Evolution of the Social Contract, and the forthcoming book Signals: Evolution, Learning and Information.
