MOTIVATION AND OBJECTIVES

Qualitative spatial and temporal reasoning is a subfield of AI that is committed to the study of relational knowledge representation languages. Such languages are used for reasoning about semantically meaningful properties of the represented domain (contact of regions, temporal order, etc.). Allen's interval algebra and the RCC calculi are the most prominent approaches, but many more have been developed. Spatial and temporal domains are typically infinite and exhibit complex structures. Due to their richness and diversity, qualitative spatial and temporal reasoning is confronted with some unique challenges. In particular, analyzing the computational complexity of such problems and developing efficient algorithms have proven to be highly challenging tasks.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers from different fields (including Automated Theorem Proving, Constraint Solving, Logic, Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science, Qualitative Reasoning) to discuss open problems, methodology, and recent advancements in the field.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

We invite submissions related to all computational aspects of qualitative spatial and temporal reasoning including but not limited to:

* complexity of qualitative reasoning tasks
* efficient algorithms
* formal characterizations of qualitative representation and reasoning
* qualitative reasoning problems in applications
* qualitative vs. other forms of geometric, spatial and temporal reasoning
* logics for qualitative reasoning
* mixed qualitative–quantitative reasoning
* algorithms for qualitative query languages
