Sixth International Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning
Workshop at AAAI-10, Atlanta, Georgia, July 2010
Call for Papers
Artificial Intelligence researchers continue to face huge challenges in their quest to develop truly intelligent systems. The recent developments in the field of neural-symbolic computation bring an opportunity to integrate well-founded symbolic artificial intelligence with robust neural computing machinery to help tackle some of these challenges. Neural-symbolic systems combine the statistical nature of learning and the logical nature of reasoning.
The Workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning is intended to create an atmosphere of exchange of ideas, providing a forum for the presentation and discussion of the key topics related to neural-symbolic integration. Topics of interest include:
* The representation of symbolic knowledge by connectionist systems;
* Learning in neural-symbolic systems;
* Extraction of symbolic knowledge from trained neural networks;
* Reasoning in neural-symbolic systems;
* Biological inspiration for neural-symbolic integration;
* Integration of logic and probabilities in neural networks;
* Structured learning and relational learning in neural networks;
* Applications in robotics, simulation, fraud prevention, semantic web, fault diagnosis, bioinformatics, etc.
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 and should not exceed 6 pages in the case of research and experience papers, and 3 pages in the case of position papers (including figures, bibliography and appendices) in AAAI-10 format as described in the AAAI-10 author instructions. Submissions are not anonymous. All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality, relevance, originality, significance, and soundness. Papers must be submitted directly via easychair in PDF format under http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nesy10.
Accepted papers will have to be presented during the workshop. The workshop will include extra time for audience discussion of the presentation allowing the group to have a better understanding of the issues, challenges and ideas being presented.
Accepted papers will be published in official workshop proceedings, which will be distributed during the workshop. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their papers to the Journal of Logic and Computation, Learning and Reasoning Corner.
Deadline for paper submission: March 29, 2010
Notification of acceptance: April 19, 2010
Camera-ready paper due: April 26, 2010
Workshop date: July 11 or July 12, 2010 (to be determined)
AAAI-10 main conference dates: July 11th to 15th, 2010
