CALL FOR PAPERS -  ECSQARU 2021

The Sixteenth European Conference on 
Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty
http://ecsqaru.utia.cas.cz/
September 21-24, 2021, Prague (Czechia)

The biennial ECSQARU conferences constitute a major forum for advances in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty, with a focus on bringing symbolic and quantitative aspects together. Contributions come from researchers interested in advancing the scientific knowledge and from practitioners using uncertainty techniques in real-world applications. The scope of the ECSQARU conferences encompasses fundamental issues, applications, representation, inference, learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric uncertainty paradigms.

Previous ECSQARU events have been held in Marseillew (1991), Granada (1993), Fribourg (1995), Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse (2001), Aalborg (2003), Barcelona (2005), Hammamet (2007), Verona (2009), Belfast (2011), Utrecht (2013), Compi├Ęgne (2015),  Lugano (2017), and Belgrade (2019)

- Automated planning and acting under uncertainty
- Belief functions
- Belief change & merging
- Classification & clustering
- Decision theory & decision graphs
- Default reasoning
- Description logics with uncertainty
- Foundations of reasoning under uncertainty
- Fuzzy sets & fuzzy logic

PROCEEDINGS

In accordance with the previous conferences, the proceedings of ECSQARU 2021 will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. In addition to that, extended versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning. 

SUBMISSIONS

Authors are requested to prepare their conference papers in the LNCS/LNAI format. Submitted papers must be original and not under review in a journal or another venue with formally published proceedings. They will be evaluated by peer reviews based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference to present their work: at least one author of each paper must register for the conference.

Submitted papers must be at most 12 pages in the Springer LNCS/LNAI format.

Submissions will be through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecsqaru2021
