21 - 25 September 2020, 6th Workshop on Formal and Cognitive Reasoning (FCR 2020), Virtual

Date: 21 - 25 September 2020
Location: Virtual
Deadline: Thursday 23 July 2020

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, possibly in combination with machine learning methods. 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. FCR 2020 will be a workshop at the 43rd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI-2020).

We welcome papers on the following and any related topics: * action and change; * agents and multiagent systems; * analogical reasoning; * formal argumentation; * belief revision and belief update; * cognitive modeling and empirical data; * commonsense 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.

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS format.  The length of each paper should not exceed 8-12 pages. All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format via the EasyChair system.
