The 9th International Workshop on
Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Action and Change (NRAC-2011) will be held as part of the workshop programme of the 2011 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-2011) at Barcelona, Spain, in July 2011.

NRAC is a well-established forum for researchers interested in sharing their experiences in work in the areas of Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Reasoning about Action, and Belief Revision. An intelligent agent exploring a rich, dynamic world, needs cognitive capabilities in addition to basic functionalities for perception and reaction. The abilities to reason nonmonotonically, to reason about actions, and to change one's beliefs, have been identified as fundamental high-level cognitive functions necessary for common sense. Research in all three areas has made significant progress during the last two decades of the past century. It is, however, crucial to bear in mind the common goal of designing intelligent agents. Researchers should be aware of advances in all three fields since often advances in one field can be translated into advances in another. Many deep relationships have already been established between the three areas and the primary aim of this workshop is to further promote this cross-fertilization.

This workshop will bring together researchers with the aim to:

  • Compare and evaluate existing formalisms.
  • Report on new developments.
  • Identify the most important open problems and research questions.
  • Identify possibilities of solution transferral between the areas.
  • Identify important challenges for the advancement of the areas.
  • Discuss challenges encountered when applying techniques in applications.
