Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief
September 10, 2007, Osnabrück, Germany
Knowledge Representation is one of the major topics in AI. Its concerns are (logical) formalisms and reasoning, with the intention to explore and model the basics of intelligent behaviour. In recent years, intelligent agents in the contexts of open environments and multi agent systems have become the leading paradigm of the field. Consequently, modern KR methods have to deal not only with static scenarios, but also with dynamic modifications in knowledge and belief, due to uncertain or incomplete information, or to changes in the environment. Moreover, agents are often expected to learn from past experiences, or to interact with other agents, making use of their knowledge and adjusting their beliefs during argumentation.
The focus of this workshop, organized by the GI-Fachgrupppe "Wissensrepräsentation und Schließen" is on dynamic processes concerning any changes that an agent's state of knowledge and belief may undergo. Modelling the continuous cycle of acquiring and applying knowledge is of particular interest, so work on relating learning and knowledge representation will be considered particularly useful. Moreover, considering the effects of belief changes on the agent's decisions and behaviour is also within the scope of the workshop.
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 (now available: PDF, BibTeX). It is planned to publish a selection of extended papers after a post-workshop reviewing process.
