Modelling intelligent interaction - Logic in the Humanities, Social and Computational sciences (LogICCC)

One of the most crucial and striking features of humans and their societies, is the phenomenon of intelligent interaction. Many disciplines, from the humanities to the physical sciences, hold separate pieces of the puzzle posed by this pervasive but also elusive phenomenon. From 2008 to 2011, the EUROCORES programme “LogICCC – Modelling Intelligent Interaction” aimed to contribute to a deeper understanding of intelligent interaction by letting logic in its modern guise act as a catalyst and a ’match maker’ between these different disciplines.

During the running time of the programme, researchers from a wide variety of disciplines have teamed up. Some of these researchers were logicians, others were not. But what all participants in LogICCC projects had in common was their interest in understanding interaction, pursued with the common language and models provided by logic in its modern, pluriform and outward-looking guise.

EUROCORES (European Collaborative Research)

The aim of the European Collaborative Research (EUROCORES) Scheme is to enable researchers in different European countries to develop collaboration and scientific synergy in areas where European scale and scope are required to reach the critical mass necessary for top class science in a global context.  

The scheme provides a flexible framework which allows national basic research funding and performing organisations to join forces to support excellent European research in and across all scientific areas.

Until the end of 2008, scientific coordination and networking was funded through the EC FP6 Programme, under contract no. ERAS-CT-2003-980409. As of 2009, the National Funding Organisations provide the funding for the scientific coordination and networking in addition to the research funding.
