Call For Papers


12th International Conference on
Logic Programming and Nonmonotonic Reasoning
LPNMR 2013

Corunna, Spain
September 15-19, 2013


LPNMR 2013 is the twelfth in the series of international meetings on
logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning. LPNMR is a forum for
exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, nonmonotonic reasoning,
and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is to facilitate
interactions between those researchers and practitioners interested in the
design and implementation of logic-based programming languages and
database systems, and those who work in the area of knowledge
representation and nonmonotonic reasoning. LPNMR strives to encompass
theoretical and experimental studies that have led or will lead to the
construction of systems for declarative programming and knowledge
representation, as well as their use in practical applications.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
research on all aspects of nonmonotonic approaches in logic programming
and knowledge representation. We invite submissions of both long and
short papers.


Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
* Semantics of new and existing languages;
* Action languages, Causality;
* 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;
* LPNMR benchmarks.

3. Applications of LPNMR:
* Use of LPNMR in formalization of 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 linguistics, psychology, and other sciences;
* Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
* Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.


LPNMR 2013 welcomes submissions of long papers (13 pages) or short papers
(6 pages) in the following categories:

* Technical papers
* System descriptions
* Application descriptions

The indicated number of pages includes title page, references and
figures. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will
appear in the conference proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS) series. At least one
author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the conference
to present the work. Submissions must be formatted according to the
Springer LNCS author instructions,

must be written in English, and present original research. Paper
submission will be electronic through

The two best contributions will be offered a fast-track publication in
the journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP).


LPNMR 2013 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is
under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in
a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit
their papers elsewhere during LPNMR's review period. However, these
restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience
and without archival proceedings.


LPNMR-13 will also include five specialized workshops:

* WoMO'13
7th Workshop on Modular Ontologies

* ARCOE-LogIC'13
5th Intl. Workshop on Acquisition, Representation and Reasoning with
Contextualized Knowledge

* GTTV'13
2nd Workshop on Grounding and Transformations for Theories with

* LNMR'13
1st Workshop on Learning and Non-monotonic Reasoning

* NLPAR'13
1st Workshop on Natural Language Processing and Automated


* Paper registration: April 17th, 2013
* Paper submission: April 24th, 2013
* Notification: June 5th, 2013
* Final versions due: June 19th, 2013


Corunna (A Coruña) is a busy port located at the entrance of an estuary on
the Atlantic coast of the north-western corner of Spain. The city features
a complete offer of leisure activities ranging from beach sports along the
seafront that surrounds it (surfing, sailing, biking, etc) to a complete
program of cultural events, an active shopping area, restaurants, tapas
bars and a crowded night life. The conference will be held at the hotel
Melia Maria Pita.
