FCR-2020:
6th Workshop on Formal and Cognitive Reasoning

WWW: <https://www.fernuni-hagen.de/wbs/fcr2020>

Workshop at the
43rd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI-2020)

September 21-25, 2020, Bamberg, Germany

Organized by the FG Wissensrepräsentation und Schließen and FG Kognition of the GI


Aims and Scope
--------------
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, 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 approaches.

Call for Papers
---------------
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 "Formal and Cognitive Reasoning" took place in Dresden (2015), Bremen (2016), Dortmund (2017), Berlin (2018), and Kassel (2019).

We welcome papers on the following and any related topics:
* action and change;
* agents and multiagent systems;
* analogical reasoning;
* formal argumentation;
* belief revision and belief update;
* cognitive modeling and empirical data;
* commonsense 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.
  
Publication
-----------
The proceedings will be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series <http://ceur-ws.org/>. We will also consider publishing a selection of extended papers in a special issue of an international journal.
