========== 2nd Call for Papers ==============

8th Workshop on Formal and Cognitive Reasoning (FCR-2022)


co-located with the 45th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
in Trier, Germany

Aims and Scope
Information for real-life AI applications is usually pervaded by 
uncertainty and subject to change, thus demands non-classical reasoning 
approaches. At the same time, psychological findings indicate that human 
reasoning cannot be completely described by classical logical systems. 
Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect beliefs, or 
inconsistencies. A wide range of reasoning mechanisms has to be 
considered, such as analogical or defeasible reasoning, possibly in 
combination with machine learning methods. The field of knowledge 
representation and reasoning offers a rich palette of methods for 
uncertain reasoning both to describe human reasoning and to model AI 

The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and 
to present novel approaches to uncertain reasoning and belief change in 
their broad senses, and in particular provide a forum for research work 
linking different paradigms of reasoning. A special focus is on papers 
that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of knowledge 
representation and cognitive models of reasoning and learning, 
addressing formal and experimental or heuristic issues. Previous events 
of the Workshop on "Formal and Cognitive Reasoning" and joint workshops 
took place in Dresden (2015), Bremen (2016), Dortmund (2017), Berlin 
(2018), Kassel (2019), Bamberg (2020, online), and Berlin (2021, online).

We welcome papers on the following and any related topics:

            Action and change
            Agents and multiagent systems
            Analogical reasoning
            Argumentation theories
            Belief change and belief merging
            Cognitive modeling and empirical data
            Common sense and defeasible reasoning
            Computational thinking
            Decision theory and preferences
            Inductive reasoning and cognition
            Knowledge representation in theory and practice
            Learning and knowledge discovery in data
            Nonmonotonic and uncertain reasoning
            Ontologies and description logics
            Probabilistic approaches of reasoning
            Syllogistic reasoning

Invited Speaker
Sébastien Konieczny (CNRS - CRIL)
