15th International Conference on

AIMS AND SCOPE

LPNMR 2019 is the fifteenth in the series of international meetings
on logic programming and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR is a forum
for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, non-monotonic
reasoning, and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is
to facilitate interactions between researchers and practitioners
interested in the design and implementation of logic-based programming
languages and database systems, and those working in knowledge
representation and nonmonotonic reasoning. LPNMR strives to encompass
theoretical and experimental studies that have led or will lead to
advances in declarative programming and knowledge representation, as
well as their use in practical applications. A Doctoral Consortium
will also be a part of the program.

This year's edition of the conference seeks to raise submissions devoted
towards use of LPNMR techniques in emerging applications stemming from such
areas as deep learning, robotics, cybersecurity, modeling cyberphysical
systems, and human-aware AI. Aspects that have been studied in commonsense
reasoning, inconsistency tolerance, and handling of dynamic knowledge appear
essential in enabling these emerging applications to provide
explanations and justifications of their outcomes. LPNMR 2019 aims to
bring together researchers from LPNMR core areas and application areas of
the aforementioned kind in order to share research experiences, promote
collaboration and identify directions for joint future research.


INVITED SPEAKERS

To be announced


TOPICS

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
research on all aspects of non-monotonic approaches in logic programming
and knowledge representation. We invite submissions of both long and
short papers on topics detailed below.

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
* Semantics of new and existing languages;
* Action languages, causality;
* Formalization of Commonsense Reasoning and understanding
its laws and nature;
* Relationships among formalisms;
* Complexity and expressive power;
* Inference algorithms and heuristics for LPNMR systems;
* Extensions of traditional LPNMR languages such as new logical
connectives or new inference capabilities;
* Updates, revision, and other operations on LPNMR systems;
* Uncertainty in LPNMR systems.

2. Implementation of LPNMR systems:
* System descriptions, comparisons, evaluations;
* Algorithms and novel techniques for efficient evaluation;
* LPNMR benchmarks.

3. Applications of LPNMR:
* Use of LPNMR in Commonsense Reasoning and other areas of KR;
* LPNMR languages and algorithms in planning, diagnosis, argumentation,
reasoning with preferences, decision making and policies;
* Applications of LPNMR languages in data integration and exchange
systems, software engineering and model checking;
* Applications of LPNMR to bioinformatics, linguistics, psychology,
and other sciences;
* Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
* Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.


SUBMISSION

LPNMR 2019 welcomes submissions of long papers (13 pages) or short papers
(6 pages) in the following categories:

* Technical papers
* System descriptions
* Application descriptions

The indicated number of pages includes title page, references and
figures. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will
appear in the conference proceedings published in the Springer's
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS) series. At least one
author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the conference
to present the work. Submissions must be written in English, present
original research, and be formatted according to Springer's guidelines
and technical instructions available at:

https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/conference-proceedings/conference-proceedings-guidelines

Paper submission is enabled via the LPNMR 2019 Easychair site:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lpnmr2019

Two best papers of general AI interest will be invited for rapid
publication in the Artificial Intelligence Journal.

Also, the journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming will devote
a special issue for a joint event of LPNMR/Datalog 2.0. Four to six papers
will be selected for a rapid publication.

In case of invited papers for a rapid publication in journals,
there should be at least 30% new content compared to the published
conference paper. The extra material should consist of extensions of
the existing material such as proofs, further experimental results, and
implementation details (some of which would appear as supplementary material).
New results could be included too, if appropriate. Authors invited
to submit to the special issue should confirm that such extra material
is available.

MULTIPLE SUBMISSION POLICY

LPNMR 2019 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is
under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in
a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit
their papers elsewhere during LPNMR's review period. However, these
restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience
and without archival proceedings.

VENUE

Philadelphia, or the "City of Brotherly Love," is the sixth-largest city
in the United States and once served as the nation's capital. Philadelphia
is an active historical and cultural hub, and has been striving for
excellence since 1776. The city's rich history of knowledge and academic
prowess has never diminished as it continues to promote and foster higher
education. Visitors can explore various attractions in and around
Philadelphia, such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Franklin
Institute, the Barnes Foundation, the Reading Terminal Market, and much
more.

Located on the East Coast of the U.S., between New York City and
Washington D.C., Philadelphia is easily reachable by air, train, and
car. As a testament to Philadelphia's commitment to educational
advancement, LPNMR 2019 will be held in one of the city's top colleges,
Saint Joseph's University. Saint Joseph's campus is located at the
outskirts of the city, in an area that features historic homes, green
areas, and a quick connection to Philadelphia's Center City and Old
City.
