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.
