PRUV is the first Workshop on Logics for Reasoning about Preferences, Uncertainty, and Vagueness.
Originally, managing preferences, uncertainty, and vagueness has in particular been explored in Artificial Intelligence. During the recent years, especially with the availability of massive amounts of data in different repositories and the possibility of integrating and exploiting these data, technologies for managing preferences, uncertainty, and vagueness have started to play a key role in other areas, such as databases and the (Social or Semantic) Web. These application areas have sparked another wave of strong interest into logics for dealing with preferences, uncertainty, and vagueness. Important examples are fuzzy and probabilistic approaches for description logics or rule systems for handling vagueness and uncertainty in the Semantic Web, or formalisms for handling user preferences in the context of ontological knowledge in the Social Semantic Web.
The aim of PRUV 2014 is to bring together people from different communities (such as the Artificial Intelligence and the Semantic Web community, among others), including theorists and practitioners, working on logics for reasoning about preferences, uncertainty, and vagueness. Making them aware of and fruitfully discuss the most recent application areas, new challenges and the existing body of work on logics for reasoning about preferences, uncertainty, and vagueness, respectively is what we would like to achieve with our workshop.
Accepted papers will be invited to a special issue of the IFCOLOG Journal of Logics and their Applications.
The final programm of PRUV is available here.
