16th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning (NMR'16)
Call for Papers Submission
Camera Ready
(April 22 - 24 2016)


NMR is the premier forum for results in the area of Non-Monotonic Reasoning. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in this broad field within knowledge representation and reasoning (KR), including belief revision, uncertain reasoning, reasoning about actions, planning, logic programming, preferences, argumentation, causality, and many other related topics including systems and applications.

The workshop will be held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from April 22nd to April 24th 2016.

NMR 2016 is co-located with DL 2016 and KR 2016, in particular, NMR 2016 will share a joint session with DL 2016.

As a novelty, NMR 2016 will no longer have different tracks in order to not force submissions and presentations into a strict format. Instead, we would like to foster connections between the different fields of nonmonotonic reasoning and provide a forum for emerging topics. We especially invite papers on systems and applications, as well as position papers and papers addressing benchmark issues. The workshop will be structured by topical sessions fitting to the scopes of accepted papers.

NMR has a long history it started in 1984, and is held every two years. Recent previous NMR workshops were held in Vienna (2014) Rome (2012), Toronto (2010), Sydney (2008), and Lake District (UK) (2006).


The NMR workshop series is the premier specialized forum for researchers in non-monotonic reasoning and related areas. This will be the 16th workshop in this series. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about actions, argumentation, declarative programming, preferences, non-monotonic reasoning for ontologies, uncertainty, and other related topics.
