15th International Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning
(NeSy’2021)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

***Submission Deadline: June 30, 2021 (Anywhere on Earth)***

Workshop webpage: https://sites.google.com/view/nesy20/

NeSy 2021 will be collocated with 1st International Joint Conference on
Learning & Reasoning (IJCLR) and will be an online event.

NeSy is the annual workshop of the Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning
Association: http://www.neural-symbolic.org/. The goal of Neural-Symbolic
Integration is to combine neural networks' robust learning mechanisms with
symbolic knowledge representation, reasoning, and explanation capability in
ways that retain the strengths of each paradigm.

NeSy invites theoretical and applied submissions that span both
connectionist and symbolic learning paradigms. We further invite papers
detailing experimental and in-the-wild neural-symbolic systems and papers
on topics where neural-symbolic learning has a strong use case. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

 - Knowledge representation and reasoning in deep neural networks
 - Symbolic knowledge extraction from neural and statistical learning models
 - Explainable AI models, systems, and techniques that integrate
connectionist and symbolic paradigms
 - Neural-symbolic cognitive models
 - Biologically-inspired neural-symbolic integration
 - Continual learning, integration of logic and probabilities with neural
networks
 - Neural-symbolic methods for structured learning tasks, including
transfer, meta, and relational learning
 - Novel connectionist systems able to perform traditionally symbolic AI
tasks (e.g. logical deduction)
 - Novel symbolic systems able to perform traditionally connectionist tasks
(e.g. unstructured data analysis)
 - Applications in simulation, finance, robotics, the semantic web,
software engineering, systems engineering, bioinformatics, and visual
intelligence.

The workshop will include the following sessions:
 - Semantic Web and Deep Learning
 - NeSy and Continual Learning
 - NeSy for Explainable AI
 - Industry/application track

Submission:

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit original papers that
have not been submitted for review or published elsewhere. Submitted papers
must be written in English, should be formatted using a single column and
11pt font, and should not exceed 8 pages in the case of research and
experience papers, or 4 pages in the case of position papers (including
figures, bibliography and any appendices). You are encouraged to use the
CEUR Latex template or the CEUR Word template.

All submitted papers will be judged based on their relevance, originality,
significance, technical quality and organisation. Papers must be submitted
through EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ijclr2021
(select NeSy as Track).

Publication:

All accepted papers will be published by CEUR and must be presented online
at the workshop. Revised and extended versions of the best papers will be
invited for submission to the NeSy journal track. A selection of the
accepted papers will be chosen for poster presentation.

Important Dates:

 - Deadline for paper submission: 30 June 2021
 - Notification of paper acceptance: August 2021
 - Camera-ready paper due: September 2021
 - NeSy Workshop dates: 25-27 October 2021
