                         Hybrid Reasoning and Learning

            A Worskhop held on October 28 at KR 2018, Tempe, Arizona, USA


           **** Paper submission deadline extended to 04 August 2018 ****


For many years, research in the area of knowledge representation and 
(KR&R) was mainly concerned with logic-based, qualitative forms of 
However, successfully applying KR&R techniques to areas such as robotics,
bioinformatics or logistics usually requires taking into account 
aspects of reasoning as well.  An example is a symbolic planner on a mobile
robot, which is integrated with geometric planning in continuous state 
space in
order to check whether a grasping action is feasible or not. Similarly, in
bioinformatics quantitative information is often needed for discriminating
solutions obtained from qualitative constraints.  Examples include natural
aspects like mass preservation or flux balances but also human-oriented 
ones due
to different degrees of confidence in data or models.  Other forms of
quantitative aspects of reasoning are uncertainty, time, resources, 
rankings, and data such as text or 3D point clouds.

Furthermore, in domains such as robotics and bioinformatics it is often 
hard to
construct the full hybrid models by hand. Especially for the quantitative
component the question is: where should the numbers come from? On the other
hand, there is often data available, which calls for the use of machine 
techniques that can support learning such hybrid representations, either by
estimating the needed quantitative information or by learning also the 
of the respective components of hybrid models. This way, even different 
methods can contribute to successfully implementing hybrid models.

This workshop intends to bring together researchers interested in 
combining both
qualitative and quantitative forms of reasoning and learning, which we 
refer to
as hybrid reasoning and learning.  We are interested in recent work which
advances the theory of hybrid reasoning, the learning of hybrid 
as well as their applications. Besides original work we also welcome 
published material.
