4th Workshop on :
Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief (DKB-2013)
September 16-20, 2013, Koblenz, Germany
in cooperation with DFG Priority Program on New Frameworks of Rationality (SPP 1516)
Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to change, and thus demands for non-classical processing. A rich palette of methods for uncertain reasoning have been developed in the field of knowledge representation showing its many facets - qualitative vs. quantitative reasoning, argumentation and negotiation in multi-agent systems, causal reasoning for action and planning, as well as nonmonotonicity and belief revision have become very active fields of research, among many others.
Previous events of the Workshop on "Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief", organized by the GI-Fachgrupppe "Wissensrepräsentation und Schließen", took place in Osnabrück (2007), Paderborn (2009), and Berlin (2011). The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and to present novel approaches to uncertain reaoning and belief change in their broad senses, and in particular provide an interdisciplinary forum for research work linking different paradigms of reasoning such as work on argumentation and belief change, or the usage of uncertain reasoning methods in first-order environments, especially for ontologies. The workshops shall also foster cross-fertilization between the area of knowledge representation, on the one hand, and other disciplines such as philosophy and psychology, on the other hand.
We welcome papers on the following and any related topics:
The proceedings will be published as a technical report that will be available at the workshop. It is planned to publish a selection of extended papers after a post-workshop reviewing process in the Journal of Applied Logic.
