14-16 May 2007, Correspondence and Equivalence for Nonmonotonic Theories (CENT2007), Tempe AZ, USA

Date: 14-16 May 2007
Location: Tempe AZ, USA
Deadline: 23 February 2007

The systematic study of intertheory relations such as strong and uniform equivalence has recently become an active sub-area of research in the field of LPNMR. Various kinds of correspondence relations that may hold between logic programs or between nonmonotonic theories have been analysed and shown to be of practical relevance for theory or program transformation, optimisation and modularity. Several systems for verifying such relations have been implemented. Different types of knowledge representation and reasoning tasks have begun to be explored in this context, such as abductive and inductive reasoning, causal reasoning, preference-based reasoning or reasoning about updates.

In the field of KRR more generally one notes an increased interest in inter-theory relations that are relevant for ontologies, eg to describe modular ontologies or equivalences between ontologies or their parts. It may therefore be of interest to combine work in this area with work on equivalences between nonmonotonic rules. We are also interested in new results on equivalences between different ontology languages proposed for the Semantic Web, particularly in combinations with (nonmonotonic) rules. Frameworks for study might therefore include e.g. DL-programs or hybrid knowledge bases that provide combinations of a classical or description logic KB with logic programming rules.
