[Apologies if you receive this more than once] Call for Papers 8th International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic Reasoning (LPNMR'05) Diamante, Cosenza, Italy September 5-8, 2005 http://www.mat.unical.it/lpnmr05/ LPNMR'05 is the eighth in the series of international meetings on logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning. Seven previous meetings were held in Washington, D.C., (1991), in Lisbon, Portugal (1993), in Lexington, Kentucky (1995), in Dagstuhl, Germany (1997), in El Paso, Texas (1999), in Vienna, Austria (2001), and in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (2004). LPNMR'05 will be organized by the Department of Mathematics of University of Calabria (Italy), and will be co-located with the INFOMIX Workshop on Data Integration. AIMS AND SCOPE -------------- LPNMR is a forum for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, nonmonotonic reasoning and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is to facilitate interactions between researchers interested in the design and implementation of logic based programming languages and database systems, and researchers who work in the areas of knowledge representation and nonmonotonic reasoning. LPNMR strives to encompass these theoretical and exprimental studies that lead to the construction of practical systems for declarative programming and knowledge representation. Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research on nonmonotonic aspects of logic programming and knowledge representation. We particularly encourage papers on application of LPNMR techniques to build significant applications. A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest includes: 1. Development and mathematical studies of logical systems with nonmonotonic entailment relations: - Semantics of new and existing languages; - Relationships between formalisms; - Complexity and expressive power; - Development of inference algorithms and search heuristics for LPNMR systems; - Extensions of ''classical'' LPNMR languages by new logical connectives and new inference capabilities such as abduction, reasoning by cases, etc; - Updates and other operations on LPNMR systems; - Uncertainty in LPNMR systems. 2. Implementation of LPNMR systems: - system descriptions, comparisons, evaluations; - LPNMR benchmarks. 3. Applications of LPNMR systems: - LPNMR languages and algorithms in planning, diagnosis, software engineering, decision making, and other domains; - Applications of LPNMR languages in Data Integration and Exchange systems; - Methodology of representing knowledge in LPNMR languages: theory and practice; - Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms; - Embedded LPNMR systems: Systems using LPNMR subsystems. SYSTEM AND APPLICATION DEMONSTRATION TRACKS ------------------------------------------- As part of the technical program, we also plan a special session devoted to presentations and demonstrations of implemented nonmonotonic reasoning systems. Systems and application demonstration tracks will be announced in a distinct call.
