Mappa di Foligno


on "REASONing under PARtial Knowledge"

Foligno (Perugia), ITALY
17 - 19 September 2009

In the last decades, the treatment of partial knowledge has seen a great expansion, giving rise to a number of different tools (such as nonmonotonic logic, uncertainty measures, etc.) to perform automated reasoning. The understanding of the basic methods and techniques has undergone the development of a truly interdisciplinary research community and of a parallel debate on the choice of the "best" relevant tools.

- to provide young researchers with a basic training in Reasoning under Partial Knowledge and its application in various fields, including Computer Science, Economics, Medicine, Biology, Engineering;
- to stimulate a critical attitude, in particular towards routine application of standard techniques: a particular care will be devoted to singling-out still unsolved puzzling foundational and interpretation problems in this fascinating and rapidly growing field;

The School will focus on "Fuzzy set theory and Cooperative games"
- The school offers 4 courses, there will be no parallel sessions
- There will be three days of classes (except Saturday afternoon)

Courses :

• Introduction to Fuzzy Sets and fuzzy logic (L. Spada)
• Introduction to Cooperative Games and Power and Consensus Indexes (F. Patrone, V. Fragnelli)
• Power index in policy and finance (G. Gambarelli)
• Introduction to Fuzzy cooperative games (M. Mareš)
