Call for Papers

8th Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief (DKB-2019) and
7th Workshop KI & Kognition (KIK-2019) on *Formal and Cognitive Reasoning*

Workshop at the 42nd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI-2019)

September 23-26, 2019, Kassel, Germany

Organized by the FG Wissensrepräsentation und Schließen and FG Kognition of the GI <http://www.gi-ev.de/>

Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to change, and thus demands for 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 mechanism has to be considered, such as analogical or defeasible reasoning. 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 approaches.


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. We put a special focus on papers from both fields that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of knowledge representation and cognitive models of reasoning and learning, addressing formal as well as experimental or heuristic issues. Previous events of the Workshop on "Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief" (DKB) took place in Osnabrück (2007), Paderborn (2009), Berlin (2011), and Koblenz (2013), previous editions of the Workshop on "KI & Kognition" (KIK) took place in Saarbrücken (2012), Koblenz (2013), and Stuttgart (2014), and joint workshops took place in Dresden (2015), Dortmund (2017), and Berlin (2018).
We welcome original papers on the following and any related topics:

     Action and change
     Agents and multiagent systems
     Analogical reasoning
     Argumentation theories
     Belief revision and belief update
     Cognitive modeling and empirical data
     Common sense and defeasible reasoning
     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


The proceedings will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series. We will also consider publishing a selection of extended papers in a special issue of an international journal.
