Two PhD positions at the University of Luxembourg -- the deadline is approaching (May 15th)!

ICR (Individual and Collective Reasoning Group, University of Luxembourg) 
offers two PhD positions starting in 2019 November within the ITN Marie 
Curie program Law, Science and Technology -- Rights of Internet of 

ICR is an interdisciplinary research team which is interested in the 
individual reasoning capacity but also in their social interaction 
potential of intelligent systems (like humans). Its overarching goal is to 
develop and investigate comprehensive formal models and computational 
realizations of individual and collective reasoning and rationality.

ICR is anchored in the Computer Science and Communications unit (CSC) of 
the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC) at the 
University of Luxembourg. The group, which is led by Prof. Leon van der 
Torre, hosted more than 20 researchers in 2018 and is strongly engaged in 
international cooperation.

Our research areas include normative reasoning in multi-agent contexts, 
logics for intelligent agents/robots, legal knowledge representation and 
reasoning, formal and computational argumentation and defeasible reasoning 
with uncertain or inconsistent information, with applications to AI, Law, 
and the formal sciences. In 2018, ICR also started to be active in the UL 
priority of space education and research. The foci of the two PhD projects 
should be 'Security and privacy of resource-constrained devices' and 'Risk 
analysis and regulatory compliance of distributed ledger technologies for 
transaction and management of securities'.

partner universities -- can be found at https://www.last-jd-rioe.eu/
