12th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence
Helsinki, Finland, September 13-15, 2010

Logics provide a formal basis and key descriptive notation for the study 
and development of applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence 
(AI). With the depth and maturity of formalisms, methodologies, and 
systems today, such logics are increasingly important. The European 
Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journées Européennes 
sur la Logique en Intelligence Artificielle --- JELIA) began back in 1988, 
as a workshop, in response to the need for a European forum for the 
discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has been 
organised biennially, with English as the official language, and with 
proceedings published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Artificial 
Intelligence series. In 2010 the conference is organized for the first 
time in Scandinavia, following previous meetings mainly taking place in 
Central and Southern Europe (see the general website http://www.jelia.eu/ 
for details). The increasing interest in this forum, its international 
level with growing participation from researchers outside Europe, and the 
overall technical quality, has turned JELIA into a major biennial forum 
for the discussion of logic-based approaches to AI.

Aims and Scope
The aim of JELIA 2010 is to bring together active researchers interested 
in all aspects concerning the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence to 
discuss current research, results, problems, and applications of both 
theoretical and practical nature.  JELIA strives to foster links and 
facilitate cross-fertilisation of ideas among researchers from various 
disciplines, among researchers from academia and industry, and between 
theoreticians and practitioners.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished 
research in all areas related to the use of logics in Artificial 
Intelligence including:

-- Abductive and inductive reasoning
-- Answer set programming
-- Applications and foundations of logic-based AI systems
-- Argumentation systems
-- Automated reasoning including satisfiability checking and its extensions
-- Computational complexity and expressiveness
-- Description logics and other logical approaches to
    semantic web and ontologies
-- Hybrid reasoning systems
-- Knowledge representation, reasoning, and compilation
-- Logic programming and constraint programming
-- Logics for uncertain and probabilistic reasoning
-- Logics in machine learning
-- Logics in multi-agent systems, games, and social choice
-- Non-classical such as modal, temporal, spatial,
    paraconsistent, and hybrid logics
-- Nonmonotonic reasoning, belief revision, and updates
-- Planning and diagnosis based on logic
-- Preferences
-- Reasoning about actions and causality

Important Dates
* Deadline for abstract submission:   May 3, 2010
* Deadline for paper submission:      May 7, 2010
* Notification of acceptance:       June 11, 2010
* Camera ready copy:                June 30, 2010

Paper Submission
Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes on 
Artificial Intelligence series. Papers should be written in English, and 
should be formatted according to the standard Springer LNCS style. All 
submissions must be received by 23:59 GMT on May 3, 2010 (abstract) and 
May 7, 2010 (full paper), and should be electronically submitted via the 
link available on the JELIA 2010 web page.

There are two categories for submissions:

A. Regular papers
    Submissions should not exceed 13 pages including figures, references, etc.,
    and should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess
    the merits and relevance of the contribution. Submissions must not have
    been previously published or be simultaneously submitted for publication

B. System descriptions
    Submissions should not exceed 4 pages, and should describe an implemented
    system and its application area(s).  A demonstration is expected to
    accompany a system presentation.  Papers describing systems that have
    already been presented in JELIA before will be accepted only if significant
    and clear enhancements to the system are reported and implemented.

The conference will be held in the main building of University of 
Helsinki, located in the center of Helsinki. Founded in 1550, Helsinki has 
been the Finnish capital since 1812, when it was rebuilt in the Empire 
style by the orders of the Czar of Russia, hence sharing architectural 
similarities with St. Petersburg even today. Located on the Baltic 
peninsula centrally between the east and the west, Helsinki "the Daughter 
of the Baltic" is a city full of contrasts: light and white in summer 
while dark but full of warmth in winter, with a combination of high-tech, 
contemporary design, and ever-present nature. Finnish design has made 
Helsinki world famous, and recently Helsinki was appointed World Design 
Capital 2012.
