Welcome to NMR 2018, the 17th edition of the International Workshop on Non-Monotonic Reasoning, which will take place in the Tempe, Arizona, USA.

The NMR Workshops

NMR is the premier forum for results in the area of Non-Monotonic Reasoning. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in this broad field within knowledge representation and reasoning (KR), including belief revision, uncertain reasoning, reasoning about actions, planning, logic programming, preferences, argumentation, causality, and many other related topics including systems and applications.

NMR has a long history — it started in 1984, and is held every two years. Recent previous NMR workshops were held in Cape Town (2016) Vienna (2014) Rome (2012), Toronto (2010), Sydney (2008), and Lake District (UK) (2006).


The NMR workshop series is the premier specialized forum for researchers in non-monotonic reasoning and related areas. This will be the 16th workshop in these series. Its aim is to bring together active researchers in the broad area of non-monotonic reasoning, including belief revision, reasoning about actions, argumentation, declarative programming, preferences, non-monotonic reasoning for ontologies, uncertainty, and other related topics.

NMR 2018 is co-located with KR 2018 and DL 2018, in particular, NMR 2018 will share a joint session with DL 2018.
