 Workshop aims:

Logic and Probability have a long partnership, having survived
together as a legacy from Leibniz, Bernoulli, De Morgan, Boole,
Bolzano, Peirce, Keynes, Carnap, Popper and several other contemporary
thinkers. According to this tradition, the problem of generalizing
logical consequence relations raises questions that transcends both
logic and probability, as a consequence of modern logical pluralism.
This also leads to a probability pluralism, represented by
non-standard theories of probability (i.e., theories of probability
based on non-classical logics) that open new avenues and pose new
challenges to theory and to applications.

All such tendencies and areas of investigation are naturally
generalized to possibility logics, necessity logics and other credal
calculi that extend probability, considering that belief can be
regarded as generalized probability or as evidence. This workshop
intends to contribute to the state-of-the-art of such research topics,
emphasizing the connections between all such topics.
