Call For Papers

7th Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief (DKB-2018)
6th Workshop KI & Kognition (KIK-2018):
Formal and Cognitive Reasoning

Workshop at the

41st German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI-2018)
September 24-28, 2018, Berlin, Germany

Organized by the
FG Wissensrepräsentation und Schließen and
FG Kognition of the GI

Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to
change, and thus demands for non-classical reasoning approaches. At the same time,
psychological findings indicate that human reasoning cannot be completely described by
classical logical systems. Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect
beliefs, or inconsistencies. A wide range of reasoning mechanism has to be considered, such
as analogical or defeasible reasoning. The field of knowledge representation and reasoning
offers a rich palette of methods for uncertain reasoning both to describe human reasoning
and to model AI approaches.

The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and to present novel
approaches to uncertain reasoning and belief change in their broad senses, and in particular
provide a forum for research work linking different paradigms of reasoning. We put a special
focus on papers from both fields that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of
knowledge representation and cognitive models of reasoning and learning, addressing formal as
well as experimental or heuristic issues. Previous events of the Workshop on "Dynamics of
Knowledge and Belief" (DKB) took place in Osnabrück (2007), Paderborn (2009), Berlin (2011),
and Koblenz (2013), previous editions of the Workshop on "KI & Kognition" (KIK) took place in
Saarbrücken (2012), Koblenz (2013), and Stuttgart (2014), and joint workshops took place in
Dresden (2015) and Dortmund (2017).

We welcome original papers on the following and any related topics:
* Action and change
* Agents and multiagent systems
* Analogical reasoning
* Argumentation theories
* Belief revision and belief update
* Cognitive modeling and empirical data
* Common sense and defeasible reasoning
* Decision theory and preferences
* Inductive reasoning and cognition
* Knowledge representation in theory and practice
* Learning and knowledge discovery in data
* Nonmonotonic and uncertain reasoning
* Ontologies and description logics
* Probabilistic approaches of reasoning
* Syllogistic reasoning
