Call for Workshop Proposals
14th International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic Reasoning
Espoo, Finland, July 3 - 6, 2017
The 14th International Conference on Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic 
Reasoning will be held in Espoo, Finland from July 3 to 6, 2017. LPNMR is a 
forum for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, non-monotonic 
reasoning, and knowledge representation. Workshops collocated with LPNMR are 
one of the best venues for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work, 
novel ideas, and new open problems regarding the topics of LPNMR, which 
include, but not limited to:
1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
   * Semantics of new and existing languages;
   * Action languages, causality;
   * Formalization of Commonsense Reasoning and understanding its laws and 
   * Relationships among formalisms;
   * Complexity and expressive power;
   * Inference algorithms and heuristics for LPNMR systems;
   * Extensions of traditional LPNMR languages such as new logical connectives 
or new inference capabilities;
   * Updates, revision, and other operations on LPNMR systems;
   * Uncertainty in LPNMR systems.
 2. Implementation of LPNMR systems:
   * System descriptions, comparisons, evaluations;
   * Algorithms and novel techniques for efficient evaluation;
   * LPNMR benchmarks.
 3. Applications of LPNMR:
   * Use of LPNMR in Commonsense Reasoning and other areas of KR;
   * LPNMR languages and algorithms in planning, diagnosis, argumentation, 
reasoning with preferences, decision-making, and policies;
   * Applications of LPNMR languages in data integration and exchange systems, 
software engineering and model checking;
   * Applications of LPNMR to bioinformatics, linguistics, psychology, and 
other sciences;
   * Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
   * Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.
Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting specialized 
topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration.  
The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers, but 
ample time should be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can vary in 
length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full day. We expect 
the workshops to be on July 3, 2017.
Workshop Proposal:
Those interested in organizing a workshop at LPNMR 2017 are invited to submit a 
workshop proposal. Proposals should be in English and about 1-2 pages in 
length. They should contain:
* The title of the workshop
* A brief technical description of the topics covered by the workshop
* A discussion of the timeline and relevance of the workshop
* A list of some related workshops held in the recent years
* An estimate of the number of expected attendees
* The names, affiliation, and contact details (email, web page) of the workshop 
organizer(s) together with a designated contact person
* The previous experience of the workshop organizing committee in 
workshop/conference organization
Proposals are expected in ASCII or PDF format. All proposals should be 
submitted to the Workshop Chair (Joohyung Lee, by email no 
later than

   December 20, 2016.
Reviewing Process:
Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Workshop Chair and the 
Conference Program Chairs. Proposals that appear well-organized and that fit 
the goals and the scope of LPNMR will be selected. The decision will be 
notified by email to the responsible organizer by December 27, 2016.
Workshop Organizers' Tasks:
* Producing a "Call for Papers" for the workshop and posting it on the Internet 
and other means
* Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference program
* Reviewing/accepting submitted papers
* Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the local organizers and 
the Workshop Chair
* Sending workshop program and workshop proceedings in pdf format to the 
Workshop Chair for distribution at the conference

(Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email. Please distribute to
