Call For Papers

The Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR) is the oldest track in 
FLAIRS conferences, running annually since 1996. The UR Special Track at 
the 36th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society 
Conference (FLAIRS-36) is the 28th in the series. Like the past tracks, 
UR seeks to bring together researchers working on broad issues related 
to reasoning under uncertainty.

Topics of Interest

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning are invited. Papers of 
particular interest include, but are not limited to:

*Uncertain reasoning formalisms, calculi and methodologies

*Reasoning with probability, possibility, fuzzy logic, belief function, 
vagueness, granularity, rough sets, and probability logics

*Modeling and reasoning using imprecise and indeterminate information, 
such as: Choquet capacities, comparative orderings, convex sets of 
measures, and interval-valued probabilities

*Exact, approximate and qualitative uncertain reasoning

*Probabilistic graphical models of uncertainty such as: Bayesian 
networks, Markov random field, probabilistic circuits

*Multi-agent uncertain reasoning and decision-making

*Decision-theoretic planning and Markov decision process

*Temporal reasoning and uncertainty

*Non-monotonic reasoning

*Conditional Logics


*Belief change and merging

*Similarity-based reasoning

*Ontologies and description logics

*Construction of models from elicitation, data mining and knowledge 

*Uncertain reasoning in information retrieval, filtering, fusion, 
diagnosis, prediction, situation assessment

*Uncertain reasoning in data management

*Practical applications of uncertain reasoning

*Learning probabilistic models

*Applications in computer vision and animation

=== Paper Submission and Publication ===

Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a 
journal or another conference while under review.

Interested authors should format their papers according to FLAIRS-36 
conference formatting guidelines. Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 
pages for a poster) and are due by February 13, 2023. The reviewing is a 
double blind process. Author names and affiliations must be omitted on 
submitted papers. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair 
conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web 
site (http://www.flairs-36.info/). Authors should indicate the Uncertain 
Reasoning special track for submissions. All accepted papers will be 
included in the proceedings of FLAIRS, which will be published by the 
Florida Online Journals. FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full 
author registration per paper.

Instructions on the submission procedure are available at the UR website:


We anticipate there will be a special issue devoted to extended versions 
of selected papers at the track.
