Workshop
»Conditionals, Information, and Inference«

Ulm, Germany
September 21, 2004

co-located with
KI 2004 - 27th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence


 
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION - AIMS AND SCOPE

Conditionals are fascinating and versatile objects of knowledge representation. On the one hand, they may express rules in a very general sense, representing e.g. plausible relationships, physical laws, and social norms. On the other hand, as default rules or general implications, they constitute a basic tool for reasoning, even in the presence of uncertainty. In this sense, conditionals are tightly related both to information and inference.

Conditionals have raised considerable scientific interest in different sciences, such as Artificial Intelligence, logics, philosophy, and the cognitive sciences. The aim of this workshop is to attract researchers from all these areas, and to provide a forum for intense discussions of new results and open problems focussing on any aspect of conditionals, be they of theoretical or practical relevance, addressing specialized or interdisciplinary issues.

As conditional reasoning touches the heart of many interesting and relevant areas in AI, papers on the following topics are welcome:
