CAIR to host KR 2016, DL 2016, and NMR 2016 in Cape Town

The 15th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR 2016) will be held in Cape Town in 2016, with members of CAIR as local organisers. The KR conference series is a leading forum for timely in-depth presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the representation and computational management of knowledge. This will only be the second time that KR will be held outside of Europe and North America.

Both of the workshops normally co-located with KR, the 29th International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2016) and the 15th International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasonig (NMR 2016), will co-locate with KR in 2016. The DL workshop series is the major annual event of the description logic research community. It is the forum at which those interested in description logics, both from academia and industry, meet to discuss ideas, share information and compare experiences. The NMR workshop series is the premier forum for results in the area of non-monotonic reasoning. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about actions, planning, logic programming, causality, probabilistic and possibilistic approaches to KR, and other related topics.
