(special session: Logic and Knowledge Representation http://www.iiconference.org/logic.html)

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 has been providing various
extensions to 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 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 the session. The papers can
be submitted as an email attachment to the Chair of the Session (address is
