Call for Papers
The First International Conference on
Foundations, Applications, and Theory of Inductive Logic
October 12-14, 2022
*** Paper submission deadline: May 13, 2022 ***
Inductive reasoning is one of the most important reasoning techniques for humans and
formalises the intuitive notion of “reasoning from experience”. It has thus influenced
both theoretical work on the formalisation of rational models of thought in Philosophy as
well as practical applications in the areas of Artificial Intelligence and, in particular,
The First International Conference on Foundations, Applications, and Theory of Inductive
Logic (FATIL2022) aims at bringing together experts from all fields concerned with
inductive reasoning. This includes in particular the following aspects:
- Foundations of many of our best theories crucially depend on inductive logic and more
widely induction. Uncertainty is ubiquitous in our lives and the philosophical problem
arises to make sense of probabilities and to act sensibly in the face of uncertainties.
General philosophy of science is much interested in (the reconstruction of) rational
inference in general and in science, in particular, in cases with inconclusive evidence.
- Theory of inductive inference can be developed within several traditions such as pure
inductive logic or inductive logic based on the maximum entropy principle.
- Applications have sprung from foundational thinking on induction in computer and data
science. This includes aspects such as knowledge representation in multi-agent settings and
machine learning approaches (such as inductive logic programming).
This conference welcomes contributions in all areas dealing with inductive reasoning.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Foundational works about inductive reasoning, inductive logic, and induction, in
particular critical examinations of existing principles.
* Computational approaches to inductive reasoning, in particular non-monotonic and other
* Computational approaches to reasoning under uncertainty.
* Machine learning approaches taking inductive reasoning into account such as inductive
The conference specifically welcomes preliminary works and discussion papers on the above
topics as well as interdisciplinary works.
FATIL2022 is organised by the DFG Research Network “Foundations, Applications, and Theory
of Inductive Logic” and will take place in Munich, Germany, October 12-14 2022.
The proceedings of FATIL2022 will be published at CEUR-WS. Authors of accepted papers will
be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution for a special issue to be
published in the Journal of Applied Logics.

Paper submission deadline: May 13, 2022
Notification of acceptance: June 27, 2022
Camera-ready version: July 22, 2022
Conference: Oct 12-14, 2022
We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS
style (template), in the following two categories:
* Full papers (12 pages max., including references) are expected to report on new
research that makes a substantial contribution to the field. Additional details
may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.
* Extended abstracts (2 pages max., including references) can report on research in
progress or other issues of interest.
Submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system
All papers will be subject to blind peer review based on the standard criteria of
relevance, significance of results, originality of ideas, soundness, and quality of the
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings via CEUR-WS, and will
be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register
for the conference and present the contribution.
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their
contribution for a special issue to be published in the Journal of Applied Logics.
