Second International Workshop on Logics for New-Generation Artificial Intelligence (LNGAI 2022)

Zhuhai, China

The Second International Workshop on Logics for New-Generation Artificial Intelligence (LNGAI 2022) will be held at the Zhuhai Campus of Sun Yat-sen University, China, 10-12 June 2022. It is associated with a national key project called “Research on Logics for New Generation Artificial Intelligence” (2021-2025), supported by the National Social Science Foundation of China. The main objectives of this project are to develop theories and techniques of non-monotonic logics and formal argumentation and apply them to causal reasoning, knowledge graph reasoning, and reasoning about norms and values, in an open, dynamic and real environment.
Along with the project, we organize annual international workshops that aim at enabling efficient communication and collaboration between members of the project as well as other researchers who are interested in the topics of this project.
Due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic situations, LNGAI 2022 will be held in a HYBRID format (virtual and physical attendance both accepted), but participants from mainland China are supposed to attend on site.

We invite two types of submissions:

  • Full papers (within 10 pages excluding bibliography) describing original and unpublished work
  • Extended abstracts (within 4 pages excluding bibliography) of preliminary original work.

Additional support material may be included in an appendix, which may be considered or ignored by the program committee.

— where to submit —

Papers in PDF format should be submitted via EasyChair:

— acceptance & presentation at LNGAI 2022 —

Each submitted paper will be peer-reviewed by a panel of PC members based on originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of exposition and relevance for the conference. For each accepted paper, at least one author is expected to register and present the paper at the workshop.

— publication —

All accepted papers will be published with College Publications, and extended versions (after peer review) will be published in a special Issue on Logics for New Generation Artificial Intelligence, ‘AI Logic’ corner, Journal of Logic and Computation.
