12th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence - 
Toulouse, France, September 26-28, 2012

Logics provide a formal basis and key descriptive notation for the study 
and development of applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence 
(AI). With the depth and maturity of formalisms, methodologies, and 
systems today, such logics are increasingly important. The European 
Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journees Europeennes 
sur la Logique en Intelligence Artificielle --- JELIA) began back in 
1988, as a workshop, in response to the need for a European forum for 
the discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has 
been organized biennially, with English as the official language, and 
with proceedings published in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in 
Artificial Intelligence series. In 2012 the conference is organized in 
Toulouse, France. The increasing interest in this forum, its 
international level with growing participation from researchers outside 
Europe, and the overall technical quality, has turned JELIA into a major 
forum for the discussion of logic-based approaches to AI.

Aims and Scope
The aim of JELIA 2012 is to bring together active researchers interested 
in all aspects concerning the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence 
to discuss current research, results, problems, and applications of both 
theoretical and practical nature. JELIA strives to foster links and 
facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas among researchers from various 
disciplines, among researchers from academia and industry, and between 
theoreticians and practitioners.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished 
research in all areas related to the use of logics in Artificial 
Intelligence including:

-- Abductive and inductive reasoning
-- Answer set programming
-- Applications of logic-based AI systems
-- Argumentation systems
-- Automated reasoning including satisfiability checking and its extensions
-- Computational complexity and expressiveness
-- Deontic logic and normative systems
-- Description logics and other logical approaches to semantic web and 
-- Knowledge representation, reasoning, and compilation
-- Logic programming and constraint programming
-- Logics for uncertain and probabilistic reasoning
-- Logics in machine learning
-- Logics in multi-agent systems, games, and social choice
-- Non-classical logics, such as modal, temporal, epistemic, dynamic, 
spatial, paraconsistent, and hybrid logics
-- Planning and diagnosis based on logic
-- Preferences
-- Reasoning about actions and causality
-- Updates, belief revision and nonmonotonic reasoning

Paper Submission
Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes on 
Artificial Intelligence series. Papers should be written in English, and 
should be formatted according to the standard Springer LNCS style.

There will be two categories for submissions:

A. Regular papers
    Submissions should not exceed 13 pages including figures, 
references, etc., and should contain original research, and sufficient 
detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. 
Submissions must not have been previously published or be simultaneously 
submitted for publication elsewhere.

B. System descriptions
    Submissions should not exceed 4 pages, and should describe an 
implemented system and its application area(s). A demonstration is 
expected to accompany a system presentation. Papers describing systems 
that have already been presented in JELIA before will be accepted only 
if significant and clear enhancements to the system are reported and 

Important Dates
