Call For Papers
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'2016 Special Track at the 29th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference (FLAIRS-29) is the 21st in the series. Like the past tracks, UR'2016 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
*Graphical models of uncertainty
*Multi-agent uncertain reasoning and decision-making
*Decision-theoretic planning and Markov decision process
*Temporal reasoning and uncertainty
*Conditional Logics, Description logic, Logic programming
*Belief change and merging
*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
Paper Submission and Publication
Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference while in review.
Interested authors should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. Papers should not exceed 6 pages (4 pages for a poster) and are due by November 16, 2015. For FLAIRS-29, the 2016 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.flairs-29.info/). Note: do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the Uncertain Reasoning special track for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS-29 will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. FLAIRS requires that there be at least one full author registration per paper.
Instructions on the submission procedure are available at the UR'2016 website: http://ur16.csd.uwo.ca
All accepted papers will be published as FLAIRS proceedings by the AAAI. A special issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning (IJAR) will be devoted to extended versions of the top papers at the track.
