CALL FOR PAPERS: Belief change, nonmonotonic reasoning, conflict resolution, Aug 2012, Montpellier, FRANCE

*** Aims and Scope

Belief change, non-monotonic reasoning and conflict resolution are well established research areas 
in Artificial Intelligence. In recent years these topics have become important for designing robots
and infobots with convincing reasoning and adaptation capabilities. The main aim of this workshop 
is to bring together active researchers on these topics, including work on belief revision, belief 
merging, reasoning about action, logic programming, inconsistency management, judgment aggregation,
negotiation, and other related topics. Papers on emerging research in this area are especially 

Numerous recent papers use techniques from belief change to define conflict resolution methods. 
In particular, several negotiation and judgment aggregation methods are closely related to work 
in belief revision or belief merging. Combining ideas from these research topics is one of the 
aims of this workshop. Hence we especially encourage submission of survey papers or position 
papers on these questions.

A further important trend is the study of the applicability of well known belief change operators 
and techniques for particular languages that are largely used in applications, such as Horn logics,
description logics, or argumentation frameworks. New developments towards such applicative 
contexts are also highly welcome.

*** Topics

- Argumentation
- Belief change
