NMR Non-Monotonic Reasoning



NMR is the premier forum for results in the area of non-monotonic reasoning. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about actions, planning, logic programming, causality, probabilistic and possibilistic approaches to KR, and other related topics. Workshop activities will include invited talks and presentations of technical papers.

NMR 2010 will be composed of six specialized sub-workshops.

Brief History of NMR

The Workshop began in 1984, and is held every two years. It has been held in Schoss Dagstuhl and Grassau in Germany, as well as in New Paltz, Lake Tahoe, Vermont, Oregon in the U.S., Whistler (BC, Canada), Lake District area of the UK, Sydney (Australia) The last six workshops were collocated with KR at Trento, Breckenridge, Toulouse, Whistler and Sydney.

Attention! According to the contract negotiated for the group of collocated conferences, Sutton Place guest room rate will be discounted to $175.00 for rooms booked by February 15th, 2010. After that date, the rate will be $185.

We could not have our notification date as early as this because our submission date had to be after KR notification.

NMR 2010 will be happening in Toronto, the city where Ray Reiter (1939-2002), one of the founders of of the field of Non-Monotonic reasoning, lived and worked. He would be only 70 if he were still with us.

2010 marks the 30th anniversary of the publication of the seminal issue of the AI Journal where the final version of Ray’s paper on Default Reasoning was published together with the famous articles by McCarthy, McDermotte and Doyle.
