CALL FOR PAPERS

           *** NMR 2016 ***

16th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning
           April 22-24, 2016
        Cape Town, South Africa
     http://nmr2016.cs.uct.ac.za/index.html

NMR is the premier forum for results in the area of Non-Monotonic  
Reasoning. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in this  
broad field within knowledge representation and reasoning (KR),  
including belief revision,  uncertain reasoning, reasoning about  
actions, planning, logic programming, preferences, argumentation,  
causality, and many other related topics including systems and  
applications.

NMR 2016 is co-located with DL 2016 and KR 2016.

Invited speakers: Laura Giordano, Leon van der Torre.

NMR has a long history -- it started in 1984, and is held every two  
years. Recent previous NMR workshops were held in Vienna (2014), Rome  
(2012), Toronto (2010), and Sydney (2008). NMR 2016 is co-located with  
KR 2016 (http://kr.org/KR2016/) and DL 2016 (http://www.dl.kr.org), in  
particular, NMR 2016 will share a joint session with DL 2016.

As a novelty, NMR 2016 will no longer have different tracks in order  
to not force submissions and presentations into a strict format.  
Instead, we would like to foster connections between the different  
fields of nonmonotonic reasoning and provide a forum for emerging  
topics. We especially invite papers on systems and applications, as  
well as position papers and papers addressing benchmark issues.
The workshop will be structured by topical sessions fitting to the  
scopes of accepted papers.

The workshop will be held at the Cape Town International Convention  
Centre from April 22-24, 2016. Workshop activities will include  
invited talks and presentations of technical papers.

There are sponsorships available for students and young researchers --  
please see the webpage of the workshop for further information.

Papers must be submitted in PDF only.
Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the  
easychair system. The submission page is available here.

Papers already published or accepted for publication at other  
conferences are also welcome, provided that the original publication  
is mentioned in a footnote on the first page. In the same vein, papers  
under review for other conferences can be submitted with a similar  
indication on their front page. Papers that have already been  
published or submitted elsewhere may have overlength.

Proceedings
------------

There are no formal proceedings for NMR. The accepted papers will be  
published as a technical report and will be made available in the  
Computing Research Repository (CoRR). After the workshop, we intend to  
have special issues with selected papers handled by guest editors.

The copyright of the papers lies with the authors, and as far as NMR  
is concerned, they are free to submit to other conferences and  
workshops as well.
