CALL FOR PAPERS: Non-Monotonic Reasoning, 8-10 June 2012, ITALY

NMR 2012 - 14th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning (NMR 2012) Rome (Italy)


  The NMR workshop series is the premier specialized forum for researchers in non-monotonic 
reasoning and related areas. This will be the 14th workshop in the series. Its aim is to bring 
together active researchers in the broad area of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief 
revision, reasoning about actions, argumentation, declarative programming, preferences, 
non-monotonic reasoning for ontologies, uncertainty, and other related topics.

  In this year, NMR will share a joint session together with the International Workshop on 
Description Logics (DL 2012).


  NMR 2012 welcomes the submission of papers broadly centered on issues and 
research in non-monotonic reasoning. We welcome papers of either a 
theoretical or practical nature. Topics of interest include (but are not 
limited to):

   - abductive reasoning and diagnosis
   - algorithms and complexity analysis
   - argumentation and argument-based non-monotonic logics
   - answer set programming,
   - belief revision and information fusion
   - belief updating and inconsistency handling
   - declarative programming for non-monotonic reasoning
   - default reasoning
   - empirical studies of reasoning strategies
   - foundations of non-monotonic reasoning
   - hybrid approaches (nonmonotonic reasoning combined with
     other computing paradigms)
   - implementations and systems
   - non-monotonic logics in multi-agent interaction, including
     negotiation and dispute resolution
   - non-monotonic reasoning for ontologies
   - reasoning and decision-making under uncertainty
   - reasoning with preferences
   - representing actions and planning
   - similarity-based reasoning


  Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 9 pages in 
AAAI style ( including 
references, figures, and appendixes if any.

  The best paper among the ones written solely by students (i.e. persons 
not holding a PhD as of February 28th, 2012) will be awarded a prize of 
400 Euros. Authors of such papers are requested to indicate their 
eligibility upon submission at Easychair. Short Papers (max. 4 pages) 
presenting implemented systems related to NMR are also welcome!

  Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the Easychair 
system. Papers must be submitted in PDF only. The submission page is 
available at

  NMR does not ask authors to sign over the copyright of their papers. 
Copyright therefore lies with the authors, and as far as NMR is concerned, 
they are free to submit to other conferences and workshops as well.


  Submission deadline:        February 28, 2012
  Notification:               March 31, 2012
  Camera-ready articles due:  April 25, 2012
  Workshop:                   June 8-10, 2012


  The workshop contributions will be published electronically.


  The workshop will be held in the conference rooms of
  Sapienza Universit di Roma.
