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.
