IULP 2020 International Workshop on User-Oriented Logic Paradigms

Collocated with the 24th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI2020)


Extended Deadline: March 22, 2020 23:59 (SST)

Workshop date: June 9, 2020

[Apologies for cross-postings]

Since the emergence of logic reasoning paradigms, such as logic programming,

argumentation, and other non-monotonic reasoning formalisms,

a lot of theoretical work has been done, for example with respect to

different semantics and their properties. More recently, implementations

and IDEs emerged which have been used for various problem-solving

applications. However, user-friendliness is still an issue for both experts and

non-experts working with logic paradigms; for example experts benefit from

features like debugging and heuristic tuning, non-experts from educational

material, explanations, and intuitive visualisations - all of which are ongoing

topics of research.

The 3rd International Workshop of User-Oriented Logic Paradigms (IULP)

focuses on discussing different aspects involved in making logic paradigms more

user-friendly/oriented, where the "user" could be either an expert of the

paradigm, or a non-expert who simply uses tools developed for the paradigm in

some application.

IULP aims to bring together researchers working on different logic paradigms,

such as answer set programming, constraint logic programming,

probabilistic logic programming, abductive logic programming,

inductive logic programming, argumentation, principles of teaching etc., as user-

friendliness is an important topic in all of these areas.

IULP aims to provide an international forum for researchers in the AI,

KR, and applied sciences community to discuss and present advances in

theories, formalisms, and applications to deliver the mature and

well-defined methods of logic paradigms to a wider audience.

We solicit the submission of papers broadly centred on issues and

research related to user-friendliness in logic paradigms and related


We welcome papers of either theoretical or practical nature, including

work in progress.
