Call For Papers

1st Workshop on Logics for Qualitative Modelling and Reasoning (LQMR'15)

as a part of

FedCSIS - Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems

13-16 September, 2015
Łódź, Poland


Deadline: 24 April 2015


LQMR'15 aims at bringing together researchers from various fields interested in qualitative modelling and reasoning. In particular, the workshop will focus on the formal approaches to qualitative reasoning, its philosophical aspects and practical applications of QR methods in engineering and computer science.


- Thomas Bittner, Department of Philosophy, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA
(director of the Qualitative Spatial Reasoning unit of the Ontology Research Group, leading expert in amongst others: formal ontology, qualitative spatial reasoning and geographic information science)

- Ivan Bratko, head of Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Faculty of Computer and Information Science of the University of Ljubljana
(author of over 200 scientific papers and numerous books, his research interests include machine learning, qualitative modelling and heuristic programming)

- Kenneth D. Forbus, Walter P. Murphy Professor of Computer Science and Professor of Education, Northwestern University, USA
(head of the Cognitive Systems Area, prominent expert in qualitative reasoning, analogical reasoning and learning, inference engine design)

- Ian Pratt-Hartmann, School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester, United Kingdom
(leading researcher in the fields of logic, AI and cognitive science. His main interests include interfaces between logic and complexity theory, logic and geometry and logic and natural language)


We invite submissions on all aspects of qualtitative modelling and reasoning including but not limited to:
- logics for qualitative reasoning
- mixed qualitative–quantitative reasoning,
- formal (e.g., logical, relational) representations of qualitative reasoning
- geometric, spatial, and temporal reasoning
- declarative spatial reasoning
- logical formalisations of qualitative motion
- knowledge representation and reasoning under incomplete, vague or inconsistent information
- qualitative decision theory
- qualitative reasoning in decision–support systems
- complexity of qualitative reasoning
- automated theorem proving for qualitative reasoning
- qualitative physics, and simulation
- qualitative methods in cognitive vision and robotics
- qualitative reasoning for product, mechanical, and architecture design


Instruction on paper submission, including style templates, are available at the workshop's webpage:

Workshop proceedings will be published as a SEPARATE ELECTRONIC VOLUME, WITH ISBN, ISSN AND DOI NUMBERS and will be made available at the conference WWW site. These papers will be indexed in the BazEcon database, and submitted for indexing to: Thomson Reuters Web of Science, SciVerse Scopus, Inspec, DBLP Computer Science Bibliography and Google Scholar.
