15th International Conference on

Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning

LPNMR 2019


Philadelphia, USA

June 4-7, 2019

Co-located with Datalog 2.0 Workshop



LPNMR 2019 is the fifteenth 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 nonmonotonic 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.

This year\’s edition of the conference seeks to raise submissions devoted

towards use of LPNMR techniques in emerging applications stemming from such

areas as deep learning, robotics, cybersecurity, modeling cyberphysical

systems, and human-aware AI. Aspects that have been studied in commonsense

reasoning, inconsistency tolerance, and handling of dynamic knowledge appear

essential in enabling these emerging applications to provide

explanations and justifications of their outcomes. LPNMR 2019 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.


To be announced


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished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.


LPNMR 2019 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\’s

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 written in English, present

original research, and be formatted according to Springer\’s guidelines

and technical instructions available at:


Paper submission is enabled via the LPNMR 2019 Easychair site:


Two best papers of general AI interest will be invited for rapid

publication in the Artificial Intelligence Journal.

Also, the journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming will devote

a special issue for a joint event of LPNMR/Datalog 2.0. Four to six papers

will be selected for a rapid publication.

In case of invited papers for a rapid publication in journals,

there should be at least 30% new content compared to the published

conference paper. The extra material should consist of extensions of

the existing material such as proofs, further experimental results, and

implementation details (some of which would appear as supplementary material).

New results could be included too, if appropriate. Authors invited

to submit to the special issue should confirm that such extra material

is available.


LPNMR 2019 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.


DATALOG 2.0 Workshop



To be announced

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM – A mentoring event where PhD students have a chance

to present their current research, get feedback from peers and senior

researchers, and establish contacts for their future career.

Philadelphia, or the \”City of Brotherly Love,\” is the sixth-largest city

in the United States and once served as the nation\’s capital. Philadelphia

is an active historical and cultural hub, and has been striving for

excellence since 1776. The city\’s rich history of knowledge and academic

prowess has never diminished as it continues to promote and foster higher

education. Visitors can explore various attractions in and around

Philadelphia, such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Franklin

Institute, the Barnes Foundation, the Reading Terminal Market, and much


Located on the East Coast of the U.S., between New York City and

Washington D.C., Philadelphia is easily reachable by air, train, and

car. As a testament to Philadelphia\’s commitment to educational

advancement, LPNMR 2019 will be held in one of the city\’s top colleges,

Saint Joseph\’s University. Saint Joseph\’s campus is located at the

outskirts of the city, in an area that features historic homes, green

areas, and a quick connection to Philadelphia\’s Center City and Old
