Apologies for multiple postings.



NMR'10 Special session on Declarative Programming Paradigms and Systems

Sub-workshop of Non-Monotonic Reasoning 2010
Toronto, Canada, 14-16 May 2010

Topics of the workshop include all aspects regarding expressive (domain
independent) modeling and knowledge representation languages and
inference systems for declarative problem solving. The workshop is a
one-day event and the technical program forms a part of the Thirteenth
Non-Monotonic Reasoning Workshop (NMR 2010), to be held in Toronto,
Canada, collocated with the KR/DL/ICAPS/AAMAS/FOIS 2010 conferences.


Authors are invited to submit original papers on this field.
The list of topics of interest includes, but is not limited to:

    * Declarative Languages
       * Extensions and integrations of classical and nonmonotonic
       * Extensions of logic programming
       * Answer set programming
       * Abductive logic programming
       * Declarative agent languages
    * Inference systems
       * Model generators
       * Answer set solvers
       * Abductive systems
       * Optimization
       * Other/new types of inference systems
    * Computational complexity analysis
    * Methodology
       * Representation and programming methodologies
       * Programming Tools
       * Program development environments
       * Debugging tools
    * Implementations
       * Algorithms and Implementation of  declarative programming
       * Optimization techniques
       * Benchmarking for NMR systems
    * Applications of declarative programming
        * Cognitive robotics systems
        * Declarative programming languages for dynamic domains
        * Semantic Web
        * Multi-Agent systems
        * Planning
        * Novel applications
    * Integration and Comparisons
        * Comparison of programming paradigms for NMR
        * Integration of NMR systems: Systems using NMR systems
        * Comparison of NMR systems
        * Integration of NMR systems with SAT/SMT/PBO/QBF/CP/ILP solvers
    * Future challenges for declarative programming systems
