16th International Conference on Deontic Logic and Normative Systems - DEON 2023

The 16th International Conference on Deontic Logic and Normative Systems (DEON 2023) will be held at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Trois-Rivières, Canada) on July 5-6-7 2023. 

The format of DEON 2023 will be hybrid with live transmission and recordings of the conference, but with speakers required to be physically present (i.e. in person attendance is required for speakers). Registration is required for both in person and online attendance.


The biennial DEON conferences are designed to promote interdisciplinary cooperation amongst scholars interested in linking the formal-logical study of normative concepts and normative systems with computer science, artificial intelligence, philosophy, ethics, linguistics, organization theory and law.

In addition to these general themes, DEON 2023 will encourage a special focus on the topic Theoretical and technical limitations of automated behavior.
