                     Last Call for Papers

 EPIA 2011 - 15th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence

    Thematic Track: COLA - COmputational Logic with Applications

                         October 10-13

                Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal


== Overview ==

 The development  of sophisticated intelligent  systems requires more
 and more  sound and appropriate foundations and  tools, resulting in
 new   problems   and   challenges   for  the   computational   logic
 practitioners.  Computational logic has  been widely used in complex
 applications  in important  areas such  as the  Deductive Databases,
 Natural Language Processing and  Program Analysis, and more recently
 on the Semantic Web and  related Web Tools. These novel applications
 have exposed the limits of existing approaches, showing the need for
 research on better  languages and more sophisticated implementations
 of reasoning systems.   The COLA thematic track of  EPIA 2011 covers
 the  broad area of  Computational Logic  and its  applications, with
 special   interest   on   topics   related  with   new   formalisms,
 environments, languages, tools,  and applications.  A non-exhaustive
 list of topics follows:

- Logic based knowledge representation and applications
- Declarative semantics of rule languages and applications
- Program Analysis, Program Transformation, Validation and
 Verification, Debugging, Profiling
- Implementation of reasoning systems, in particular logic programming,
 contextual logic programming, and tabling systems
- Abductive and Inductive Logic Programming
- Ontologies, Description Logics and integration with reasoning systems
- Reasoning with incomplete and uncertain information, including
 non-monotonic reasoning as well as probabilistic and fuzzy logic
 programming formalisms
- Reasoning on the Semantic Web
- Applications: Deductive Databases, Data Integration,
 Natural Language, Semantic Web, and Web Tools

== Important Dates ==

  Deadline for paper submission: May 10, 2011
  Notification of paper acceptance: June 10, 2011
  Camera-ready papers: July 1, 2011
  Conference dates: October 10-13, 2011

== Submission Guidelines ==

 All  papers should  be submitted  through the  conference management
 website at:


 Papers should  not exceed fifteen (15)  pages in length  and must be
 formatted according to the information for LNCS authors. Papers must
 be submitted  in PDF (Adobe's  Portable Document Format)  format and
 will  not be accepted  in any  other format.  Papers that  exceed 15
 pages  or do  not follow  the  LNCS guidelines  risk being  rejected
 automatically  without  a  review.   At  least one  author  of  each
 accepted paper  must register for the  conference.  More information
 about the  Springer's Lecture Notes  in Computer Science  (LNCS) are
 available on the Springer LNCS Web site


 The best  papers (the  exact number is  decided by the  EPIA Chairs)
 will appear  in the  proceedings published by  Springer in  the LNAI
 series. The remaining  accepted papers will be  published in a venue
