Automated deduction aims at formalizing diverse aspects of reasoning and has many application areas from software verification to mathematical theorem proving. It is originally based on algorithmic methods derived from mathematical logics. In contrast, human reasoning cannot be completely described by logical systems. Sources of explanations are incomplete knowledge, incorrect beliefs, or inconsistencies. Still, humans have an impressive ability to derive acceptable conclusions. From the very beginning of AI research, there has been a strong emphasis on incorporating mechanisms of human rationality and cognition into reasoning systems.
The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from AI, Automated Deduction, and Cognitive Science to foster a multi-disciplinary exchange and to discuss possibilities to overcome the historic separation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
Non-monotonic, defeasible, and classical reasoning and possible explanations for human reasoning
Limits and differences between automated and human reasoning
Application fields of automated reasoning in the interaction with human reasoners (e.g., in spatial knowledge processing)
Human-computer interaction and cognitive robotics (regarding the relevance for reasoning methods)
This workshop continues a series of successful workshops initiated by the Special Interest Group "Cognition" in the GI.
It will be held in conjcunction with KI 2012.
