======================================================================= Call For Papers International Workshop on Preferences and Their Applications in Logic Programming Systems http://www.cs.nmsu.edu/lldap/Prefs06 August 16, 2006 To be held in conjunction with 22nd International Conference on Logic Programming Seattle, Washington ======================================================================= Workshop Description ==================== This workshop attempts to address all aspects of describing, modeling, computationally handling, and application of preferences, within the context of logic programming. In particular, we seek contributions that create cross-fertilization between different approaches to preferences and different flavors of logic programming (e.g., constraint logic programming, answer set programming) -- hopefully leading to new, more general, approaches for handling preferences in logic programming. The workshop topics include, but are not limited to: - preferences in logic programming - preferences in answer set programming - preferences in logic-based planning - soft constraints - knowledge representation and reasoning with preferences - languages for preferences description - systems and experiences - applications of preferences The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in modeling and implementing preferences in logic programming. The objective is to promote exchange of ideas and possible integration between the different approaches proposed so far. Workshop Motivation =================== The concept of preference has played an important role in various aspects of computer science. For example, preferences play a key role in the design of practical and efficient reasoning systems dealing with real-world knowledge. The concept of preference has been investigated by many researchers in different fields, both within Computer Science (e.g., Artificial Intelligence, Optimizations, Scheduling) and outside of Computer Science (e.g., Economics, Decision Theory). In recent years we have witnessed a growing interest in studying the integration of preferences in the context of logic-based and logic programming systems. These directions of research are of great importance, considering that preferences are considered a vital component of reasoning with real-world knowledge, and logic programming is one of the most widely used programming paradigms employed in knowledge representation and reasoning. Workshop Format =============== The workshop will emphasize discussion and cross-fertilization, so presentations will be balanced with discussion time. In this direction, the workshop is seeking high quality papers that address cutting-edge research in this field, and that can contribute to the discussion. The agenda will include paper presentations, and possibly an invited speaker. At least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop. Important Dates =============== Submission Deadline: May 15th, 2006 (strict) Notifications to Authors: June 10th, 2006 Final Version Deadline: June 30th, 2006 PREFS 2006 Workshop: August 16th, 2006 Submission Guidelines ===================== Participants should submit a paper (maximum 15 pages, PDF format), describing their work in topics relevant to the workshop. Accepted papers will be presented during the workshop. At least one author of an accepted contribution is expected to register for the workshop, and present the paper. All submissions should include the author's name(s), affiliation, complete mailing address, and email address. Authors are requested to prepare their submissions, following the LNCS/LNAI Springer format. Please see: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for further details. The submission should be sent through the Easychair submission system, located at: http://www.easychair.org/PREFS2006/submit/ The deadline for receipt of submissions is May 15, 2006. Papers received after this date may not be reviewed. Eligible papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee. Authors will be notified via email of the results by June 10th, 2006. Authors of accepted papers are expected to improve their paper based on reviewers' comments and to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts by June 30, 2006. Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings, which will be distributed to the participants.
