                                 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                               16th International Conference on
                       Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning
                                       LPNMR 2022


                                          Genova, Italy
                                       September 5-9, 2022


  Early registration deadline is July 20th, 2022. For more information, visit:

We remind that at least one author of each accepted paper must early register
in order to have the paper included in the proceedings.


  LPNMR 2022 is the sixteenth in the series of international meetings
  on logic programming and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR is a forum
  for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, non-monotonic
  reasoning, and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is
  to facilitate interactions between researchers and practitioners
  interested in the design and implementation of logic-based programming
  languages and database systems, and those working in knowledge
  representation and non-monotonic reasoning. LPNMR strives to encompass
  theoretical and experimental studies that have led or will lead to
  advances in declarative programming and knowledge representation, as
  well as their use in practical applications. A Doctoral Consortium
  will also be a part of the program.

LPNMR 2022 aims to bring together researchers from LPNMR core areas and
application areas of  the aforementioned kind in order to share research experiences,
promote collaboration and identify directions for joint future research.


  Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
  research on all aspects of non-monotonic approaches in logic programming
  and knowledge representation. We invite submissions of both long and
  short papers on topics detailed below.

  Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
    * Semantics of new and existing languages;
    * Action languages, causality;
    * Formalization of Commonsense Reasoning and understanding
      its laws and nature;
    * Relationships among formalisms;
    * Complexity and expressive power;
    * Inference algorithms and heuristics for LPNMR systems;
    * Extensions of traditional LPNMR languages such as new logical
      connectives or new inference capabilities;
    * Updates, revision, and other operations on LPNMR systems;
    * Uncertainty in LPNMR systems.

  2. Implementation of LPNMR systems:
    * System descriptions, comparisons, evaluations;
    * Algorithms and novel techniques for efficient evaluation;
    * LPNMR benchmarks.

  3. Applications of LPNMR:
    * Use of LPNMR in Commonsense Reasoning and other areas of KR;
    * LPNMR languages and algorithms in planning, diagnosis, argumentation,
      reasoning with preferences, decision making and policies;
    * Applications of LPNMR languages in data integration and exchange
      systems, software engineering and model checking;
    * Applications of LPNMR to bioinformatics, linguistics, psychology,
      and other sciences;
    * Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
    * Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.

The main conference will take place in Genova Nervi, Italy, in the Collegio Emiliani
(http://www.collegioemiliani.it/, information available only in Italian on this link), which
is a college directly situated on the sea.
Nervi is a former fishing village, now a suburb of Genoa. Nervi is 7 km
east of central Genova. Genova is the capital of Liguria, stretching along the
bay of the same name from Nervi to the east as far as Voltri to the west.
The pride of Nervi is the sea promenade, a 2 km walkway along the cliffs.
The stunning views make it one of Italy's most beautiful promenades. Nervi is also
well known for its Parchi, a park of about 22 acres (9 hectares) created from the
gardens of the Villa Grimaldi, Villa Groppallo, and Villa Serra. It has typical Mediterranean
plant species and many exotic species.
Genova’s old town district (reachable by local train, by bus, as well as by boat) is
one of the largest in Europe, and hosts some remarkable artistic and architectural
treasures, including the Palazzi dei Rolli, fifty or so homes of the aristocracy entered
on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
In addition to offering a wealth of cultural attractions, Genova is a fascinating destination
for tourists, with its scenic vantage points, sea promenades, aristocratic villas and of
course the Riviera to the east and west, both easy to reach: Portovenere and Le Cinque
Terre (also UNESCO World Heritage Sites), Portofino and Camogli to the east and Alassio, Sanremo, Bordighera to the west.

Workshops and associated events, differently from what we mentioned in the previous call, are planned to be held in the main conference venue as well.

Of course, we will continuously monitor the pandemic situation in order to evaluate whether
the conference can be indeed held as an in-person event, or we will need to switch to a hybrid event, if not completely on-line.
