Call For Papers

4th Workshop on

Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief

organized by the FG "Wissensrepraesentation und Schliessen" of the GI
in cooperation with DFG Priority Program on New Frameworks of Rationality (SPP 1516)

Workshop at KI-2013,
36th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence,
September 16-20, 2013, Koblenz, Germany


Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty
and subject to change, and thus demands for non-classical processing. A rich
palette of methods for uncertain reasoning have been developed in the field of
knowledge representation showing its many facets - qualitative vs.
quantitative reasoning, argumentation and negotiation in multi-agent systems,
causal reasoning for action and planning, as well as nonmonotonicity and
belief revision have become very active fields of research, among many others.

Previous events of the Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief took
place in Osnabrueck (2007), Paderborn (2009) and Berlin (2011).
The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and to
present novel approaches to uncertain reaoning and belief change in their
broad senses, and in particular provide an interdisciplinary forum for
research work linking different paradigms of reasoning such as work on
argumentation and belief change, or the usage of uncertain reasoning methods
in first-order environments, especially for ontologies. The workshops shall
also foster cross-fertilization between the area of knowledge representation,
on the one hand, and other disciplines such as philosophy and psychology,
on the other hand.

We welcome papers on the following and any related topics:

* knowledge representation in theory and practice
* belief revision and belief update
* nonmonotonic and uncertain reasoning
* learning and knowledge discovery in data
* argumentation theories
* decision theory and preferences
* ontologies and description logics
* agents and multiagent systems
* action and change

The proceedings will be published as a technical report that will be available
at the workshop. It is planned to publish a selection of extended papers after
a post-workshop reviewing process in the Journal of Applied Logic.
