CFP:NeSy'11: Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning

http://www.neural-symbolic.org/NeSy11/

PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS

7th International Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning
(NeSy'11) - http://www.neural-symbolic.org/NeSy11/

In conjunction with IJCAI-11, Barcelona, July 2011

Artificial Intelligence (AI) researchers continue to face huge challenges in their quest to develop truly intelligent systems. The recent developments in the area of neural-symbolic integration offer an
opportunity to combine symbolic AI and robust neural computation to help
tackle some of these challenges.

The Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning attracts
researchers and practitioners from different areas like Neural
Computation, Artificial Intelligence, Logic, Complex Networks, Cognitive
Science, Computer Vision, Fraud Prevention, Semantic Web, Verification and Validation. It is intended to create an atmosphere of exchange of ideas, providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of the key
multidisciplinary topics related to neural-symbolic integration. Topics of interest include:

1. Representation and computation of symbolic knowledge by neural
networks;
2. Machine learning for neural-symbolic networks;
3. Knowledge extraction from complex networks;
4. Logical reasoning in neural-symbolic networks;
5. New neuro-symbolic cognitive models;
6. Uncertainty in neural-symbolic networks;
7. Biologically-inspired neuro-symbolic integration;
8. Applications in robotics, simulation, fraud prevention, semantic web,
fault diagnosis, bioinformatics, etc.

Submission
You are invited to submit papers through easychair at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nesy11. Submitted papers must
not have been published elsewhere, must be written in English and should
not exceed 6 pages in the case of research and experience papers or 3
pages in the case of position papers (including figures, bibliography and appendices). All submitted papers will be refereed based on their quality, relevance, originality, significance and soundness.

Presentation
Accepted papers must be presented during the workshop. The workshop will
also include extra time for discussion, allowing the audience to get a
better understanding of the issues, challenges and ideas being presented.

Publication
Accepted papers will be published by CEUR and will be included in the
official workshop proceedings, which will be distributed during the
workshop. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised
and extended version of their papers to the Journal of Logic and
Computation, reasoning and learning corner, OUP.

Important Dates
Deadline for submission: April 2011
Notification of acceptance: May 2011
Camera-ready paper due: May 2011
Workshop day:  16 or 17 July 2011
IJCAI-11 dates: 16 to 22 July 2011

Workshop Organisers
Artur d.Avila Garcez (City University London, UK)
Pascal Hitzler (Wright State University, USA)
Luis C. Lamb (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil)
