Call For Papers

Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR)

Hollywood, Florida, USA
May 18-20, 2015

Many problems in AI (in reasoning, planning, learning, perception and robotics) require the agent to operate with incomplete or uncertain information. The objective of this track is to present and discuss a broad and diverse range of current work on uncertain reasoning, including theoretical and applied research based on different paradigms. We hope that the variety and richness of this track will help to promote cross fertilization among the different approaches for uncertain reasoning, and in this way foster the development of new ideas and paradigms.

The Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR) is the oldest track in FLAIRS conferences, running annually since 1996. The UR'2015 Special Track at the 28th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference (FLAIRS-28) is the 20th in the series. Like the past tracks, UR'2015 seeks to bring together researchers working on broad issues related to reasoning under uncertainty.

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning are invited. Papers of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Uncertain reasoning formalisms, calculi and methodologies
- Reasoning with probability, possibility, fuzzy logic, belief function, vagueness, granularity, rough sets, and probability logics
- Modeling and reasoning using imprecise and indeterminate information, such as: Choquet capacities, comparative orderings, convex sets of measures, and interval-valued probabilities
- Exact, approximate and qualitative uncertain reasoning
- Bayesian networks
- Graphical models of uncertainty
- Multi-agent uncertain reasoning and decision making
- Decision-theoretic planning and Markov decision process
- Temporal reasoning and uncertainty
- Nonmonotonic reasoning
- Conditional Logics
- Argumentation
- Belief change and Merging
- Similarity-based reasoning
- Construction of models from elicitation, data mining and knowledge discovery
- Uncertain reasoning in information retrieval, filtering, fusion, diagnosis, prediction, situation assessment
- Practical applications of uncertain reasoning

All accepted papers will be published as FLAIRS proceedings by AAAI Press. We anticipate that, as in previous years, a special issue in an international journal will be devoted to extended versions of the top papers at the track..

Important Dates
Submission of papers: November 19, 2014
Notification of acceptance: January 19, 2015
Camera-ready versions due: February 23, 2015
FLAIRS-28 conference: May 18-20, 2015

Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 17, 2014. For FLAIRS-28, the 2015 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. The papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system (, which can also be accessed through the main conference web site ( Note: Do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers.

Authors should indicate the special track "Uncertain Reasoning" for submissions.

The proceedings of FLAIRS-28 will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper at FLAIRS-28.
