                                Call for Papers
                             An ESSLLI04 Workshop on
                  Logic and Communication in Multi-Agent Systems


    The workshop, this year in its second edition, aims at bringing
    together graduate students and researchers interested in topics
    related to the use of formal tools when applied to modelling,
    specifying, verifying, and reasoning about multi-agent systems in
    which communication and updating play a crucial role. Specifically,
    the workshop aims at providing a forum for discussing technical issues
    that arise with formalisms (epistemic, temporal, dynamic and
    authentication logics and tools) inspired by the needs of modelling
    information exchanges in multi-agent systems.

    The workshop will be held within the context of ESSLLI04, the 2004
    edition of the European Summer School on Logic Language and
    Computation, to be held in Nancy in August 2004.
