Second Call For Papers

BNC at ECAI'12
Belief change, Non-monotonic reasoning and Conflict resolution

Montpellier, France

*** Aims and Scope

Belief change, non-monotonic reasoning and conflict resolution are well
established research areas in Artificial Intelligence. In recent years
these topics have become important for designing robots and infobots
with convincing reasoning and adaptation capabilities. The main aim of
this workshop is to bring together active researchers on these topics,
including work on belief revision, belief merging, reasoning about
action, logic programming, inconsistency management, judgment
aggregation, negotiation, and other related topics. Papers on emerging
research in this area are especially welcome.

Numerous recent papers use techniques from belief change to define
conflict resolution methods. In particular, several negotiation and
judgment aggregation methods are closely related to work in belief
revision or belief merging. Combining ideas from these research topics
is one of the aims of this workshop. Hence we especially encourage
submission of survey papers or position papers on these questions.

A further important trend is the study of the applicability of well
known belief change operators and techniques for particular languages
that are largely used in applications, such as Horn logics, description
logics, or argumentation frameworks. New developments towards such
applicative contexts are also highly welcome.
