Call for Presentation Abstracts

[Half-page abstracts are due by April 30th]

Artificial Intelligence researchers continue to face huge challenges in
their quest to develop truly intelligent systems. The recent
developments in the field of neural-symbolic computation bring an
opportunity to integrate well-founded symbolic artificial intelligence
with robust neural computing machinery to help tackle some of these
challenges. Neural-symbolic systems combine the statistical nature of
learning and the logical nature of reasoning.

The Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning is intended to
create an atmosphere of exchange of ideas, providing a forum for the
presentation and discussion of the key topics related to neural-symbolic
integration. Topics of interest include:

   * The representation of symbolic knowledge by connectionist systems;
   * Learning in neural-symbolic systems;
   * Extraction of symbolic knowledge from trained neural networks;
   * Reasoning in neural-symbolic systems;
   * Biological inspiration for neural-symbolic integration;
   * Integration of logic and probabilities in neural networks;
   * Structured learning and relational learning in neural networks;
   * Applications in robotics, simulation, fraud prevention, semantic
web, fault diagnosis, bioinformatics, etc.

Submission

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit half-page presentation abstracts. They must be submitted via easychair in PDF format at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nesy10 .

Presentation

Accepted abstracts will have to be presented during the workshop. The
workshop will include extra time for audience discussion of the
presentation allowing the group to have a better understanding of the
issues, challenges and ideas being presented.

Important Dates

Deadline for presentation abstract submission: April 30, 2010
Notification of acceptance: May 7, 2010
Workshop date: July 11 or July 12, 2010 (to be determined)
AAAI-10 main conference dates: July 11th to 15th, 2010

Admission

The workshop is open to all members of the AI community, but the number
of attendees may be limited. In case of exceeded capacity preference
will be given to participants with papers selected for presentation.
