AIMS AND SCOPE

  LPNMR 2022 is the sixteenth in the series of international meetings
  on logic programming and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR is a forum
  for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, non-monotonic
  reasoning, and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is
  to facilitate interactions between researchers and practitioners
  interested in the design and implementation of logic-based programming
  languages and database systems, and those working in knowledge
  representation and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR strives to encompass
  theoretical and experimental studies that have led or will lead to
  advances in declarative programming and knowledge representation, as
  well as their use in practical applications. A Doctoral Consortium
  will also be a part of the program.

  LPNMR 2022 aims to bring together researchers from LPNMR core areas and
  application areas of  the aforementioned kind in order to share research
  experiences, promote collaboration and identify directions for joint future research.


TOPICS

  Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
  research on all aspects of non-monotonic approaches in logic programming
  and knowledge representation. We invite submissions of both long and
  short papers on topics detailed below.

  Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
    * Semantics of new and existing languages;
    * Action languages, causality;
    * Formalization of Commonsense Reasoning and understanding
      its laws and nature;
    * Relationships among formalisms;
    * Complexity and expressive power;
    * Inference algorithms and heuristics for LPNMR systems;
    * Extensions of traditional LPNMR languages such as new logical
      connectives or new inference capabilities;
    * Updates, revision, and other operations on LPNMR systems;
    * Uncertainty in LPNMR systems.

  2. Implementation of LPNMR systems:
    * System descriptions, comparisons, evaluations;
    * Algorithms and novel techniques for efficient evaluation;
    * LPNMR benchmarks.

  3. Applications of LPNMR:
    * Use of LPNMR in Commonsense Reasoning and other areas of KR;
    * LPNMR languages and algorithms in planning, diagnosis, argumentation,
      reasoning with preferences, decision making and policies;
    * Applications of LPNMR languages in data integration and exchange
      systems, software engineering and model checking;
    * Applications of LPNMR to bioinformatics, linguistics, psychology,
      and other sciences;
    * Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
    * Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.


SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

  LPNMR 2022 welcomes submissions of long papers (13 pages) or short papers
  (6 pages) in the following categories:

    * Technical papers
    * System descriptions
    * Application descriptions

  The indicated number of pages includes title page, figures, tables, references
  and appendix. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will
  appear in the conference proceedings published in the Springer's
  Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. At least one
  author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the conference
  to present the work. Submissions must be written in English, present
  original research, and be formatted according to Springer's guidelines
  and technical instructions available at:
     https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/conference-proceedings/conference-proceedings-guidelines

  Paper submission is enabled via the LPNMR 2022 Easychair site:
     https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lpnmr2022

  The two best papers of general AI interest will be invited for rapid
  publication in the Artificial Intelligence Journal.

  Also, the 2-5 best papers with a logic programming focus will be invited
  for rapid publication in the journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming.


MULTIPLE SUBMISSION POLICY

  LPNMR 2022 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is
  under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in
  a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit
  their papers elsewhere during LPNMR's review period. However, these
  restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience
  and without archival proceedings.


COLOCATED WORKSHOPS

  * DATALOG 2.0 Workshop
  * 1st International Workshop on HYbrid Models for Coupling Deductive and
    Inductive ReAsoning (HYDRA 2022)
  * 29th RCRA workshop on Experimental evaluation of algorithms for solving
    problems with combinatorial explosion (RCRA 2022)


ASSOCIATED EVENTS

  LPNMR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM - A mentoring event where PhD students have a
  chance to present their current research, get feedback from peers and
  senior researchers, and establish contacts for their future career.

VENUE

  The main conference will take place in Genova Nervi, Italy, in the Collegio Emiliani
  (http://www.collegioemiliani.it/, information available only in Italian on this link),
  which is a college directly situated on the sea.
  Nervi is a former fishing village, now a suburb of Genoa. Nervi is 7 km
  east of central Genova. Genova is the capital of Liguria, stretching along the
  bay of the same name from Nervi to the east as far as Voltri to the west.
  The pride of Nervi is the sea promenade, a 2 km walkway along the cliffs.
  The stunning views make it one of Italy's most beautiful promenades. Nervi is also
  well known for its Parchi, a park of about 22 acres (9 hectares) created from the
  gardens of the Villa Grimaldi, Villa Groppallo, and Villa Serra. It has typical
  Mediterranean plant species and many exotic species.
  Genova's old town district (reachable by local train, by bus, as well as by boat) is
  one of the largest in Europe, and hosts some remarkable artistic and architectural
  treasures, including the Palazzi dei Rolli, fifty or so homes of the aristocracy entered
  on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
  In addition to offering a wealth of cultural attractions, Genova is a fascinating
  destination for tourists, with its scenic vantage points, sea promenades, aristocratic
  villas and of course the Riviera to the east and west, both easy to reach: Portovenere
  and Le Cinque Terre (also UNESCO World Heritage Sites), Portofino and Camogli to the east
  and Alassio, Sanremo, Bordighera to the west.
  
  Associated events (workshops) are planned to be held at the University, which is in the
  city center of Genova, but we are still considering if they can be done in the main
  conference venue.
  
  Of course, we will continuously monitor the pandemic situation in order to evaluate whether
  the conference can be indeed held as an in-person event, or we will need to switch to a
  hybrid event, if not completely on-line.
