Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research on all aspects of nonmonotonic approaches in logic programming and knowledge representation.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

Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Foundations of LPNMR Systems:
    • Semantics of new and existing languages;
    • Action languages, Causality;
    • 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;
    • LPNMR benchmarks.
  3. Applications of LPNMR:
    • Use of LPNMR in formalization of 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 linguistics, psychology, and other sciences
    • Integration of LPNMR systems with other computational paradigms;
    • Embedded LPNMR: Systems using LPNMR subsystems.


LPNMR 2013 welcomes submissions of long papers (13 pages) or short papers (6 pages) in the following categories:

  • Technical papers
  • System descriptions
  • Application descriptions

The indicated number of pages includes title page, references and figures. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS) series. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register for the conference to present the work. Submissions must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS author instructions,, must be written in English, and present original research. Paper submission will be electronic through The two best contributions will be offered a fast-track publication in the journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP).

LPNMR 2013 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during LPNMR's review period. However, these restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.

LPNMR-13 will also include five specialised workshops:


  • Paper registration: April 17th, 2013
  • Paper submission: April 24th, 2013
  • Notification: June 5th, 2013
  • Final versions due: June 19th, 2013
