Special Issue on Theoretical and Practical Aspects of Unification
In 2020, Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence (AMAI) celebrates its 30th anniversary. Over the years, the journal has promoted better understanding of the application of quantitative, combinatorial, logical, algebraic and algorithmic methods to artificial intelligence areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge-based systems, machine learning, computer vision, robotics and planning. AMAI special issues are intended to be collections of original research papers reflecting the intersection of mathematics and a focussed discipline demonstrating how each has contributed greatly to the other. A further goal of the journal is to close the gaps between the fields even further. Papers should report on current research in the appropriate areas, as well as more retrospective papers in which progress has been ongoing over a period of time.
The purpose of this special issue of AMAI is to promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of unification. Unification is concerned with the problem of making two terms equal, finding solutions for equations or making formulas equivalent. It is a fundamental process used in a number of fields of computer science, including automated reasoning, term rewriting, logic programming, natural language processing, program analysis, types, etc. The special issue is related to the topics of the 34th International Workshop on Unification - UNIF 2020. Participants of the workshop, as well as other authors are invited to submit contributions.
EXAMPLES of TOPICS
This special issue focuses on advanced results on the topics of unification in a broad sense, which include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Unification algorithms, calculi and implementations
- Equational unification and unification modulo theories
- Unification in modal, fuzzy, temporal and description logics
- Matching problems
- Unification in special theories
- Higher-order unification
- Combination problems
- Constraint solving
- Complexity issues
- Type checking and reconstruction
- Admissibility of inference rules
- Formalization of unification
This special issue welcomes original high-quality contributions that have been neither published in nor simultaneously submitted to any journals or refereed conferences. Submissions will be peer-reviewed using the standard refereeing procedure of the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence.
Submitted papers must be in English, prepared in LaTeX according to the guidelines of the journal:
PDF versions of papers should be uploaded at the submission page
by December 14, 2020.
