14th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence
Madeira Island, Portugal
September 24-26, 2014
Logics have, for many years, laid claim to providing a formal basis for the study and development of applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence. With the depth and maturity of formalisms, methodologies and logic-based systems today, this claim is stronger than ever.
The European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journées Européennes sur la Logique en Intelligence Artificielle – JELIA) began back in 1988, as a workshop, in response to the need for a European forum for the discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has been organised biennially, with proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. Previous meetings took place in Roscoff, France (1988), Amsterdam, Netherlands (1990), Berlin, Germany (1992), York, UK (1994), Évora, Portugal (1996), Dagstuhl, Germany (1998), Málaga, Spain (2000), Cosenza, Italy (2002),
Lisbon, Portugal (2004), Liverpool, UK (2006), Dresden, Germany (2008), Helsinki, Finland (2010) and Toulouse, France (2012).
The increasing interest in this forum, its international level with growing participation of researchers from outside Europe, and the overall technical quality, have turned JELIA into a major biennial forum for the discussion of logic-based approaches to artificial intelligence.
Aims and Scope
The aim of JELIA 2014 is to bring together active researchers interested in all aspects concerning the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence to discuss current research, results, problems, and applications of both theoretical and practical nature. JELIA strives to foster links and facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas among researchers from various disciplines, among researchers from academia and industry, and between theoreticians and practitioners.
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research in all areas related to the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence including:
* Abductive and inductive reasoning
* Answer set programming
* Applications of logic-based AI systems
* Argumentation systems
* Automated reasoning including satisfiability checking and its extensions
* Computational complexity and expressiveness
* Deontic logic and normative systems
* Description logics and other logical approaches to semantic web and ontologies
* Knowledge representation, reasoning, and compilation
* Logic-based data access and integration
* Logic programming and constraint programming
* Logics for uncertain and probabilistic reasoning
* Logics in machine learning
* Logics in multi-agent systems, games, and social choice
* Non-classical logics, such as modal, temporal, epistemic, dynamic, spatial, paraconsistent, and hybrid logics
* Planning and diagnosis based on logic
* Reasoning about actions and causality
* Updates, belief revision and nonmonotonic reasoning
There are two categories for submissions:
A. Regular papers
Submissions should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. Submissions must not have been previously published or be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.
B. System descriptions
Submissions should describe an implemented system and its application area(s). A demonstration is expected to accompany a system presentation. Papers describing systems that have already been presented in JELIA before will be accepted only if significant and clear enhancements to the system are reported and implemented.
All submissions should not exceed 13 pages including figures etc., but excluding references. All submissions should be written in English, and should be formatted according to the standard Springer LNCS style. The proceedings of JELIA 2014 are published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, a sub-series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Important note: Springer will require all the LaTeX source files of all accepted submissions).
Policy on Multiple Submission: JELIA 2014 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 JELIA’s review period. However, these restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.
JELIA 2014 submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system. Follow the link http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jelia2014
