CALL FOR PAPERS
*** NMR 2016 ***
16th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning
April 22-24, 2016
Cape Town, South Africa
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
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.

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.
