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.
