CAUSAL 2019 IMPORTANT DATES
-----------------------
* Paper submission: April 28th 2019
* Notification: May 12th 2019
* Final Versions: May 26th 2019
* Workshop Date: June 3rd or 4th 2019

------------------------

Sophisticated causal reasoning has long been prevalent in human society and
continues to have an undeniable impact on the advancement of science,
technology, medicine, and other significant fields. From the development of
ancient tools to modern roots of causal analysis in business and industry,
reasoning about and understanding causality enables us to identify how an
outcome of interest came to be and gives us insight into how to bring about,
or even prevent, similar outcomes in future scenarios.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners of
logic programming with a dedicated focus on methods and trends emerging from
the study of causality and explanation. We welcome the submission of papers on
systems, tools, and applications of logic programming methods for causal
reasoning and explanation. In particular, we encourage submissions presenting
recent developments, including works in progress. The workshop will present
the latest research and application developments in these areas and provide
opportunities to discuss current and future research directions and
relationships to other fields (e.g. Machine Learning, Diagnosis, Natural
Language Processing and Understanding). An important expected outcome of this
workshop is to collect first-hand feedback from the LPNMR community about the
role and placement of causal reasoning and explanation in the landscape of
modern computer theory as well as in the software industry.

TOPICS
