Special Session on
Logic and Knowledge Representation
The 5th Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

December 14-16, 2011, Tumkur (near Bangalore), India

A special session on Logic and Knowledge Representation will be held during the 5th Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IICAI-11). The session invites papers in all areas of Logic and Knowledge Representation .

For many years, logic has been studied as an important topic of knowledge representation and reasoning. In fact, many AI researchers use logic for analyzing the problems and for modeling the reasoning process. In addition, the knowledge representation research in AI lead to various extensions of logic in other fields such as philosophy, linguistics, cognitive science, computer science, etc. The special session on Logic and Knowledge Representation provides an ideal platform for exchanging ideas in all the areas related to logic and knowledge representation. The topics covered by the session include but certainly not limited to:

  • Abduction and Induction
  • Automated Reasoning
  • Belief Revision
  • Complexity of Reasoning
  • Description Logics
  • Foundations of Knowledge Representation
  • Hybrid Reasoning Systems
  • Knowledge-base Systems
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Logic for Databases
  • Logic for Multi-agent Systems
  • Logic for the Semantic Web
  • Logic Programming
  • Logical Formalisms in AI
  • Modal Logic
  • Nonclassical Logic
  • Nonmonotonic Reasoning
  • Object-Oriented Deductive Languages
  • Ontology
  • Ontology Description Languages
  • Order-Sorted Logic
  • Philosophical Logic
  • Proof Theory
  • Reasoning About Actions and Change
  • Temporal Representation and Reasoning

Paper Submission and Publication:
Authors are encouraged to submit the papers for this session as an email attachment to the Session Chair given below.
