20 September 2022, 8th Workshop on Formal and Cognitive Reasoning (FCR-2022), Trier, Germany

Date: Tuesday 20 September 2022
Location: Trier, Germany
Deadline: Sunday 17 July 2022

Information for real-life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to change, thus demands 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 mechanisms 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. A special focus is on papers that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of knowledge representation and cognitive models of reasoning and learning, addressing formal and experimental or heuristic issues. FCR 2022 will be co-located with the 45th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Trier, Germany.

We welcome papers on the following and any related topics: Action and change, Agents and multiagent systems, Analogical reasoning, Argumentation theories, Belief change and belief merging, Cognitive modeling and empirical data, Common sense and defeasible reasoning, Computational thinking, 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, and 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.
