CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 12th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence, Sep 26-28, 2012, Toulouse, FRANCE


Logics provide a formal basis and key descriptive notation for the study and development of 
applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence (AI). With the depth and maturity of formalisms,
methodologies, and systems today, such logics are increasingly important. The European Conference 
on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journees Europeennes sur la Logique en Intelligence 
Artificielle --- JELIA) began back in 1988, as a workshop, in response to the need for a European 
forum for the discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has been organized 
biennially, with English as the official language, and with proceedings published in Springer-
Verlag's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. In 2012 the conference is organized 
in Toulouse, France. The increasing interest in this forum, its international level with growing 
participation from researchers outside Europe, and the overall technical quality, has turned JELIA 
into a major forum for the discussion of logic-based approaches to AI.


Registration as well as travel and accommodation information is available on the JELIA 2012 web 
pages http://www.irit.fr/jelia2012
