 Call, 1992 Nonmonotonic Workshop

                         CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
          FOURTH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON NONMONOTONIC REASONING
                           May 28-31, 1992
            Hawk Inn & Mountain Resort, Plymouth, Vermont

The fourth international workshop on nonomontonic reasoning, sponsored
by AAAI and AT&T Bell Laboratories, will be held May 28-31, 1992, at
the Hawk Inn & Mountain Resort in Plymouth, Vermont.  The aim of the
workshop is to bring together active researchers interested in the
area of nonmonotonic reasoning to discuss current research, results,
and problems of both theoretical and practical nature.

For the upcoming workshop we are particularly soliciting papers on the
following themes:

* Applications of Nonmonotonic Reasoning:  Reports on the use or
suitability of nonmonotonic systems to analyze or solve problems in AI
or general computer science, such as qualitative physics, databases,
learning, logic programming, diagnosis, robotics, natural language,
etc.

* Computational Tractability:  Either formal or implemented systems
that explicitly address the cost of computation.  This might include
(but is not limited to) limited languages, approximate reasoning,
relevance, resource-bounds, and argument-based systems.

* Comparing Approaches:  How do the different formalisms for capturing
nonmonotonic behaviour---including traditional approaches and more
recent work in conditional logics, probabilities, and belief
revision---compare?  What criteria should be used to select one
formalism over another?  What can be said about existing approaches in
this regard?  Do they have underlying semantic models?  If so, how
well do those models serve in the creation, verification, and/or
implementation of these theories?

Of course, ground-breaking work in ANY area of nonmonotonic reasoning
is also welcome!

Attendance will be limited to 40-50 people, by invitation only.  The
workshop will have a mix of discussions, panels, and paper
presentations.  Anyone wishing to attend should submit a short
description of their past accomplishments and current research
interests.  Those wishing to present a paper should also include an
extended abstract consisting of no more than 10 double-spaced pages
(4000 words).

A limited number of spaces will be reserved for students, and student
lodging and travel subsidies will be available.  Students should
indicate their university and year of study, and include letters of
recommendation from their supervisors.

Please include your postal (and, if possible, electronic mail)
addresses on all correspondence.  Send four (4) copies of materials
to:
