14 - 15 July 2018, The Fifth International Workshop on "Defeasible and Ampliative Reasoning" (DARe 2018), Stockholm, Sweden

Date: 14 - 15 July 2018
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Deadline: Tuesday 15 May 2018

Everyday human decision making involves various kinds of non-classical reasoning such as reasoning with uncertainty, exceptions, similarity, vagueness, incomplete or contradictory information and many others. These types of reasoning usually show two intertwined aspects, an ampliative aspect (augmenting the underlying reasoning by allowing more conclusions) and a defeasible aspect (curtailing the underlying reasoning by either disregarding or disallowing some conclusions that somehow ought not to be sanctioned). Several efforts have been put into the study and definition of formalisms within which the aforementioned aspects of everyday reasoning could adequately be captured at different levels. But despite the progress that has been achieved, large avenues remain open for exploration.

DARe aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from core areas of artificial intelligence, cognitive sciences, philosophy and related disciplines to discuss these kinds of problems and relevant results in a multi-disciplinary forum. The goal of the workshop is to present latest research developments, to discuss current directions in the field, and to collect first-hand feedback from the community.

DARe welcomes contributions on all aspects of defeasible and ampliative reasoning. We invite submissions of papers presenting original research results or position statements. Submissions should be no longer than 6 pages (not counting the references). The selection of accepted contributions will be based on relevance, significance and the work's potential to foster discussions and cross-pollination. Therefore submissions of ongoing work are also strongly encouraged.
