Let’s Talk Models! First ENCODE Workshop

Start date

End date

 “Let’s Talk Models!” is the kick-off workshop for the NWO VIDI project ENCODE: Explicating Norms of Collective Deliberation. As part of this project, we will organize workshops on a regular basis at the Erasmus School of Philosophy (Erasmus University of Rotterdam).

The theme of this edition is Formal Models of Deliberative Norms. In particular, a range of different models (logical, agent-based, game-theoretic and/or argument-based) of group deliberation and its norms will be presented and discussed. The ultimate aim is to understand how these models shed light on trade-offs and tensions among such norms, and on different recipes for implementing them.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Hun Chung, Waseda University
  • Nina Gierasimczuk, Danish Technical University
  • Erica Yu, Erasmus University of Rotterdam
  • Olivier Roy, University of Bayreuth
  • Soroush Rafiee Rad, University of Bayreuth & University of Amsterdam

For more information on the ENCODE project, see this link. The schedule of the talks will be announced in due course.

We will decide by April 1st whether the workshop will be hybrid or fully online. Either way, participation to the workshop will be fee of charge, but registration is required. In case you want to participate, please contact Frederik Van De Putte at vandeputte@esphil.eur.nl.

This workshop is not to be confused with another, equally interesting one that takes place at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam on May 18th: “The potentials and pitfalls of democratic deliberation: Interdisciplinary perspectives”.
