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 Journ?es Europ?ennes 
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 
organized 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.

Invited Speakers

Gerhard Brewka (http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~brewka/):
Nonmonotonic Tools for Argumentation

Adnan Darwiche (http://www.cs.ucla.edu/~darwiche/):
Relax, Compensate and then Recover:

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.
