NMR 2014 welcomes the submission of papers broadly centered on issues and research in non-monotonic reasoning. We welcome papers of either theoretical or practical nature. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
To focus the different topics of submissions, the workshop comprises the following thematic tracks:
as well as the following special tracks:
Recent years witnessed the development of mature solver technology for some NMR based formalisms and, accordingly, successful real-world applications. This track welcomes papers on describing implemented NMR systems as well as papers presenting applications of NMR formalisms and systems. Topics of interest include pure system descriptions (providing information on the basic functionality and usability of the respective systems), the comparison and evaluation of NMR systems, NMR applications in industry and academia, software engineering and modeling methodology aspects, and reports from the field.
The aim of the Benchmarks for NMR special track is to discuss the construction of benchmarks for NMR. Benchmarks proved useful in a variety of domains in order to develop efficient algorithms and methods. They are for the moment insufficiently developed for main NMR areas. We want to discuss this issue in NMR 2014. Typical questions of interested could be:
Papers related to these issues, description of existing systems of benchmarks, etc., are welcome.
Papers should be between 4 and 10 pages in AAAI style including references, figures, and appendixes, if any. System descriptions can typically be on the lower bound of the page range.
Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the easychair system. Papers must be submitted in PDF only. The submission page is available here.
Papers already published at other conferences and that can be of interest for an NMR audience are welcomed to NMR 2014, provided that the initial publication is mentioned in a footnote on the first page.
Submissions will have to indicate to which of the above listed tracks it is intended to belong to, as well as whether it constitutes new research or recently published research.
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).
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. Similarly, papers already published can be submitted (but this has to be indicated in the submission).
