The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers from philosophy, computer science, and allied disciplines who work on non-monotonic logics and defeasible inference. The idea is to bring traditional philosophical reflections on these topics-- such as defeat in epistemology, prima facie duties in ethics, and belief revision in philosophy of science-- together with the rich tradition of non-monotonic logics in computer science and artificial intelligence, including default logic and logic programming.

The conference will be a half day on Friday October 11 and a full day on Saturday October 12. On Saturday, the event will be at the Luskin Conference Center. On Friday, the event will be on campus at a location to be determined. 

There is a call for papers here, with a due date of July 15:

Registration information will be available circa mid July.
