                             Adam's Mark Hotel
                           Clearwater Beach, FL

The capability of reasoning with uncertain and/or incomplete information
is a crucial
feature both of human and machine intelligence. The Special Track on
Uncertain Reasoning
at the Eighteenth International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research
Symposium (FLAIRS)
Conference seeks to bring together researchers working on broad issues
related to
reasoning under uncertainty. This track was started in 1996 and has become
an annual
event at FLAIRS. In 2003 the track was merged with the Special Track on
Imprecise and
Indeterminate Probabilities.

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning and imprecise probabilities
are solicited.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Uncertain reasoning and databases
* Uncertain reasoning formalisms, calculi and methodologies
* Reasoning with probability, possibility, fuzzy logic, belief functions,
  argumentation, rough sets, and probability logics
* Modelling and reasoning using imprecise and indeterminate information,
* using for instance: Choquet capacities, comparative orderings, convex
sets of measures,
  and interval-valued probabilities
* Exact, approximate and qualitative uncertain reasoning
* Nonmonotonic reasoning and belief revision
* Multi-agent uncertain reasoning and decision making
* Decision-theoretic planning and Markov decision process
* Temporal reasoning and uncertainty
* Construction of models from elicitation, data mining and knowledge
* Uncertain reasoning in information retrieval, filtering, fusion, diagnosis,
  prediction, and situation assessment
* Practical applications of uncertain reasoning

Paper Submission and Publication
Paper format and submission details are available at

Papers will be refereed and all accepted papers will appear in the
conference proceedings which will be published by AAAI Press.
Selected authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their
papers to a special issue of the International Journal on Artificial
Intelligence Tools (IJAIT) to be published in 2006.

In addition, we will be arranging a special issue of the
\emph{International Journal of
Approximate Reasoning}, devoted to
extended and revised papers selected from the special track on uncertain
