NMR08 -- Foundations of NMR and Uncertainty
Twelfth International Workshop on
Special Session on Foundations of NMR and Uncertainty
13 September to 15 September 2008.
in Sydney, Australia.
NMR'08 Special session on Foundations of NMR and Uncertainty
Aims and Objectives
The abilities to handle uncertain information and to reason nonmonotonically from incomplete knowledge are crucial
features of intelligent behaviour in complex and dynamic environments.
This is why reasoning under uncertainty and nonmonotonic reasoning are major research areas in Artificial Intelligence.
The aim of this specialized workshop at NMR'2008 is to bring together researchers working in the intersection of both fields.
This subworkshop will especially welcome papers that explore the relationship between formalisms developed within the two fields and
that improve understanding and cross-fertilization between researchers active in reasoning under uncertainty and nonmonotonic reasoning.
The main focus of the meeting is in nonmonotonic aspects related to the following topics:
Some perspectives of interest are:
- formalisms for reasoning under uncertainty
(probabilistic, possibilistic, belief, plausibility),
- qualitative versus numerical representations,
- independence and graphical representations,
- revision and update of uncertain knowledge,
- handling inconsistency in uncertain knowledge,
- fusion of uncertain knowledge,
- uncertainty in logic programming and databases,
- action and planning under uncertainty.
- theoretical foundations,
- combination of different approaches,
- comparison and relationship between different approaches,
- empirical studies,
- systems and implementations,
- algorithms and complexity,
- real-life applications,
- future challenges.

All NMR-08 sessions have the same submission requirements. Submissions
are are limited to 9 pages using the KR paper format. Please send a
PDF file of the submission to each of the organizers by e-mail.

Nine AAAI-style (= KR style) pages for final papers, as in
previous years. We propose pdf files only (i.e. not postscript and
certainly not Word) for submissions.
There will be one set of proceedings for all six workshops.
