  Seventh IJCAI International Workshop on
  Nonmontonic Reasoning, Action and Change

      Call for Papers

Intelligent agents exploring complex and dynamic physical and 
information rich landscapes require sophisticated capabilities for 
perception, reasoning and planning. The abilities to reason 
nonmonotonically, to reason about actions, and to change one's beliefs, 
have been identified as fundamental high-level cognitive functions. 
Underlying these functions is the need to manage inconsistent, 
uncertain, and changing information.

These areas provide significant research challenges and often advances 
in one field can be translated into advances in another. Many deep 
relationships have already been established between the three areas and 
the primary aim of this workshop is to further promote this 
cross-fertilization. A closer look at recent developments in the three 
fields reveals just how fruitful such cross-fertilization can be.

This workshop will bring together researchers with the aim to:

    * Compare and evaluate existing formalisms.
    * Report on new developments.
    * Identify the most important open problems and research questions.
    * Identify possibilities of solution transferral between the areas.
    * Identify important challenges for the advancement of the areas.
    * Discuss challenges encountered when applying techniques in
