                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                                   NMR 2012

          14th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning (NMR 2012)


         Co-located with KR 2012, DL 2012, KiBP 2012, CILC 2012, AI*IA 2012

                                  Rome, Italy

                                June 8-10, 2012



  The NMR workshop series is the premier specialized forum for researchers in
  non-monotonic reasoning and related areas. This will be the 14th workshop in
  the series. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area
  of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about
  actions, argumentation, declarative programming, preferences, non-monotonic
  reasoning for ontologies, uncertainty, and other related topics.

  In this year, NMR will share a joint session together with the International
  Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2012).


  NMR 2012 welcomes the submission of papers broadly centered on issues and
  research in non-monotonic reasoning. We welcome papers of either a
  theoretical or practical nature. Topics of interest include (but are not
  limited to):
   - abductive reasoning and diagnosis
   - algorithms and complexity analysis
   - argumentation and argument-based non-monotonic logics
   - answer set programming
   - belief revision and information fusion
   - belief updating and inconsistency handling
   - declarative programming for non-monotonic reasoning
   - default reasoning
   - empirical studies of reasoning strategies
   - foundations of non-monotonic reasoning
   - hybrid approaches (nonmonotonic reasoning combined with
     other computing paradigms)
   - implementations and systems
   - non-monotonic logics in multi-agent interaction, including
     negotiation and dispute resolution
   - non-monotonic reasoning for ontologies
   - reasoning and decision-making under uncertainty
   - reasoning with preferences
   - representing actions and planning
   - similarity-based reasoning


  Papers must describe original research and should not exceed 9 pages
  in AAAI style (http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/author.php)
  including references, figures, and appendixes if any.
  Short Papers (max. 4 pages) presenting implemented systems related to NMR
  are also welcome!

  The best paper among the ones written solely by students (i.e. persons
  not holding a PhD as of March 10th, 2012) will be awarded a prize of
  400 Euros. Authors of such papers are requested to indicate their
  eligibility upon submission at Easychair.

  Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the
  Easychair system. Papers must be submitted in PDF only.
  The submission page is available at


  NMR does not ask authors to sign over the copyright of their papers.
  Copyright therefore lies with the authors, and as far as NMR is concerned,
  they are free to submit to other conferences and workshops as well.


  Paper Registration:         March 10, 2012
  Submission deadline:        March 17, 2012
  Notification:               April 22, 2012
  Camera-ready articles due:  May 4, 2012
  Workshop:                   June 8-10, 2012


  The workshop contributions will be published electronically.


  The workshop will be held in the conference rooms of
  Sapienza Università di Roma.
