Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR) Special Track on Deep
Learning, Knowledge Representation, and Reasoning

( <http://www.jair.org/specialtrack-dlkrr-call.html>



We are pleased to invite papers for submission to a JAIR special track on
deep learning, KR, and reasoning, as such also naturally targeting work in
neural-symbolic integration and related areas. 


The recent success of deep neural networks at tasks such as language
modelling, computer vision, and speech recognition has attracted
considerable interest from industry and academia. Achieving a better
understanding and widespread use of such models involves the use of
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning together with sound Machine Learning
methodologies and systems.


The goal of the special track is to serve as a home for the publication of
leading research in deep learning towards cognitive tasks, focusing on
applications of neural computation to advanced AI tasks requiring knowledge
representation and reasoning. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to: knowledge extraction and reasoning using deep networks, the
representation of rich symbolic knowledge by neural systems, the integration
of logic and probabilities using neural networks, structure learning and
relational learning using recurrent networks, neural-symbolic cognitive
agents and models, theory revision and transfer learning with neural
networks, applications in natural language understanding, visual
intelligence, audio, music and signal processing, multimodal learning,
education and assessment, and other tasks of a cognitive nature.


The timetable for the special track looks as follows:


Deadline for submissions (EXTENDED): February 28, 2017

First round of notifications: end of May 2017

Deadline for re-submissions: end of August, 2017

Final notifications: end of October, 2017

Final manuscripts due: end of November, 2017


We hope that this special track will provide a forum to our communities for
showcasing highest-quality research and application work, by this
establishing a repository which can serve as a form of "academic reference
beacon" for future work to build upon.


Further details concerning submission formats and procedure can be found at


On behalf of the track editor and all associate editors,
