Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR) at FLAIRS'17


FLAIRS-30 Marco Island, Florida, USA, May 22-24, 2017

Call For Papers

Many problems in AI (in reasoning, planning, learning, perception,
and robotics) require the agent to operate with incomplete or
uncertain information. The objective of this track is to present
and discuss a broad and diverse range of current work on uncertain
reasoning, including theoretical and applied research based on
different paradigms. We hope that the variety and richness of this
track will help to promote cross fertilization among the different
approaches for uncertain reasoning, and in this way foster the
development of new ideas and paradigms.

The Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR) is the oldest track
in FLAIRS conferences, running annually since 1996. The UR'2017
Special Track at the 30th International Florida Artificial
Intelligence Research Society Conference(FLAIRS-30) is the 22nd in
the series. Like the past tracks, UR'2017 seeks to bring together
researchers working on broad issues related to reasoning under

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning are invited. Papers of
particular interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Uncertain reasoning formalisms, calculi and methodologies

   - Reasoning with probability, possibility, fuzzy logic, belief function,
vagueness, granularity, rough sets, and probability logics

   - Modeling and reasoning using imprecise and indeterminate information,
such as: Choquet capacities, comparative orderings, convex sets of
measures, and interval-valued probabilities

   - Exact, approximate and qualitative uncertain reasoning

   - Bayesian networks

   - Graphical models of uncertainty

   - Multi-agent uncertain reasoning and decision making

   - Decision-theoretic planning and Markov decision process

   - Temporal reasoning and uncertainty

   - Non-monotonic reasoning

   - Conditional logics, Description logic, Logic programming

   - Argumentation

   - Belief change and Merging

   - Similarity-based reasoning

   - Construction of models from elicitation, data mining and knowledge 

   - Uncertain reasoning in information retrieval, filtering, fusion, 
   prediction, situation assessment

   - Uncertain reasoning in data management

   - Practical applications of uncertain reasoning

For next year we intend to bring closer together the areas of
uncertainty management in AI and data management. We are
particularly interested in submissions that can be of interest for
both. The interaction of these two areas and research communities
will be fruitful for the two of them, and beneficial to the broader
area of data science in general.

All accepted papers will be published as FLAIRS proceedings by AAAI
Press. A special issue of an international journal will be devoted
to extended versions of the top papers at the track.
