Apologies for multiple copies. 


Workshop on ASP technologIes for Querying large scale multisource heterogeneous web information 2017
http://waspiq2017.lsis.org <http://waspiq2017.lsis.org/>

This international workshop is affiliated with the 30th International Conference on Industrial, Engineering & Other Applications of Applied Intelligent Systems (IEA/AIE 2017)
http://www.cril.univ-artois.fr/ieaaie2017/ <http://www.cril.univ-artois.fr/ieaaie2017/> and will take place in Arras, France between June 27th and June 30th, 2017

The aim of this workshop is to bridge knowledge representation and reasoning in artificial intelligence and web of knowledge communities in order to encourage the emergence of new solutions for reasoning with lightweight ontologies.

- Query answering while taking ontologies into account.
- Non monotonic reasoning for inconsistency handling and exception handling and expressing default negations in ontologies.

Concerning the first point, a challenging issue is how to adapt or extend Answer Set Programming to represent ontological knowledge. In particular, can (a fragment of) ASP cover lightweight ontological languages while keeping decidability and efficiency?

Concerning the second point, a challenging issue is how to extend lightweight ontological languages with non-monotonic features, while keeping a good computational complexity. In particular,

- how to embed exceptions-based and inconsistency tolerant-based reasoning in a tractable ontological language?
- how to integrate uncertainty information in lightweight ontological languages?
- how to define merging operations where both inputs and outputs are in lightweight ontological languages?

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
    Reasoning with lightweight ontologies
    Reasoning with tractable fragments of OWL languages
    Belief change & tractable Description logics
    Reasoning on the web of data
    Ontology-based data-access
    Ontological query answering
    Belief change & ASP
    Datalog+/- & existential rules
    ASP & description logics
    ASP & uncertainty
    First-order ASP
