Wiebe van der Hoek

Keynote speaker at ICAART 2013

Wiebe van der Hoek studied mathematics in Groningen, did a PhD in Computer Science at the Free University of Amsterdam, and, after a period as lecturer at Utrecht University (Netherlands), became a Professor at the University of Liverpool (UK) in 2002. His main interests are in modal logic, specifically logics for representing informational and other attitudes of rational agents. He has co-authored two books on (Dynamic) Epistemic Logic, is a member of the editorial board of the journal Agents and Multi-agent Systems and of Studia Logica. He is founder and editor-in-chief of Knowledge, Rationality and Action, and, since 2012, editor-in-chief of Synthese. He is a steering committee member of LOFT (Logic and the Foundations of Game and Decision Theory) since 1994, and a fellow of the British Computer Society since 2004. I also attach an abstract of a talk. However, I must declare that a very similar abstract was published already as part of the proceedings of Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies 2011 (where I gave a related invited talk).
