We are pleased to announce the "BRAON (On Belief Revision, Argumentation, Ontologies, and Norms)". The workshop will take place from Thursday November 16th, 2017 to Monday November 20th, 2017 in Madeira. The workshop will be held in the following style: participation is by invitation, the agenda of presentations will be defined "on the fly", and we have chosen a beautiful and quiet place to guarantee a working environment suitable for a creative, relaxed, and fruitful meeting.

This edition will extend the topics of Belief Revision and Argumentation to Ontologies and Norms.

The main topic of the workshop will be applications of BR and Arg, in a wide sense. An application is not only a computational issue, for instance, we consider a valid topic the application of belief revision in formal epistemology, psychology, economics, etc. In particular, we will consider applications in Ontologies and Norms. If you have topics/ideas to discuss please email us!

As it happened in the previous editions, we consider that the future of our areas lies with our young PhDs and junior researchers, for this edition, again we have planned one full day devoted to their work. The activities will include: (a) short presentations of PhD's proposals or research plans, with a panel of senior researchers in a Doctoral consortium style, (b) short presentations about methodologies followed in the existing lines of research in BRAON, and (c) a meeting with a brainstorming style between juniors and seniors with an open agenda.

- As an outcome of the conference, we will edit a book on College Publications with contributions presented on the workshop expanded and completed a chapters after the conclusion of the event (thanks Dov Gabbay!).

This edition will take place in Ponta Delgada (North Coast of Madeira Island) in the Monte Mar Palace. It is the same hotel of the 2015 version.

Remember that because of the format of the workshop we have a limited number of places (40); so please confirm that you want to participate as soon as possible in order to reserve your place. We will open the registration in September and the deadline for early registration will be on October 6th.

We hope to see you in Madeira!
