Aims and Scope

Information for real life AI applications is usually pervaded by uncertainty and subject to change, and thus demands for non-classical reasoning approaches. At the same time, psychological findings indicate that human reasoning cannot be completely described by classical logical systems. Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect beliefs, or inconsistencies. A wide range of reasoning mechanism has to be considered, such as analogical or defeasible reasoning. The field of knowledge representation and reasoning offers a rich palette of methods for uncertain reasoning both to describe human reasoning and to model AI approaches.

Call for Papers

The aim of this series of workshops is to address recent challenges and to present novel approaches to uncertain reasoning and belief change in their broad senses, and in particular provide a forum for research work linking different paradigms of reasoning. We put a special focus on papers from both fields that provide a base for connecting formal-logical models of knowledge representation and cognitive models of reasoning and learning, addressing formal as well as experimental or heuristic issues. Previous events of the Workshop on "Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief" (DKB) took place in Osnabrück (2007), Paderborn (2009), Berlin (2011), and Koblenz (2013), previous editions of the Workshop on "KI & Kognition" (KIK) took place in Saarbrücken (2012), Koblenz (2013), and Stuttgart (2014), and joint workshops took place in Dresden (2015), Dortmund (2017), and Berlin (2018).

We welcome original papers on the following and any related topics:
