Call for Papers
=============
12th International Symposium on Logical Formalizations of Commonsense
Reasoning 2015
part of the AAAI Spring 2015 Symposia series
at Stanford University in Palo Alto California, March 23–25, 2015.

About Commonsense Reasoning 2015
=================================
The biennial Commonsense Symposia series provides a forum for exploring
one of the long-term goals of Artificial Intelligence, endowing
computers with common sense. Although we know how to build programs that
excel at certain bounded or mechanical tasks which humans find
difficult, such as playing chess, it is still very difficult to get to
do well at commonsense tasks which are easy for humans, such as
interacting with a human on a task, or conversing about a film or book.
One approach to this problem is to formalize commonsense reasoning using
formal languages such as mathematical logic.

Since John McCarthy founded the Commonsense Symposium in 1991, the
symposium has served as the premiere venue for bringing together
researchers who are focusing on the formalization of commonsense reasoning.

Important Dates

Topics
======
Topics of interest at the symposium include, but are not limited to:
- Formal representations, reasoning, and algorithms, for specific
commonsense domains such as:
- time, change, action, causality
- commonsense physical and geometrical reasoning
- biological, medical, legal, etc. reasoning
- mental states and propositional attitudes, such as knowledge,
belief, intention, desire
- social relations
- Methods for creating commonsense knowledge bases, including:
- statistical and corpus-based machine learning techniques
- crowd sourcing
- hand crafting microtheories
- Applications of commonsense reasoning to specific tasks including:
- cognitive robotics (action and perception)
- logic-based planning
- natural language processing, machine reading, understanding
narrative structure, textual entailment, query answering
- web search and web-based services
- Semantic Web
- computer vision
- computer-aided instruction
- home automation
- assistive technologies
- biomedical informatics; integrating and mapping biomedical
ontologies
- Relations among object-level theories, such as abstraction and
contextualization
- Methods of deductive and plausible reasoning that are applicable to
commonsense domains and problems, including:
- answer set programming
- probabilistic, heuristic, or approximate reasoning
- nonmonotonic reasoning
- belief revision
- Meta-theorems about commonsense theories and techniques
- Relation of other fields, such as philosophy, linguistics,
cognitive psychology, game theory, and economics to formal theories of
commonsense knowledge
