What is Qualitative Reasoning?

The world is full of systems that have continuous aspects, and about which we only have incomplete, qualitative knowledge. Humans are amazingly effective at working with such knowledge, and many science, engineering, and educational applications could benefit greatly from similar capabilities. In seeking to understand the ability to reason qualitatively, the QR community pursues research at the interface of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Engineering, and Science.

This research includes:
  • Development of algorithms and systems for constructing, simulating, and applying qualitative and semi-quantitative models
  • Study, from a cognitive modelling perspective, how humans represent and use incomplete knowledge
  • Development of methods for system modelling, explanation, diagnosis, and design, with applications in science, engineering, and education
Invitation to submit contributions to QR'09 and to participate

The 23rd International Workshop on Qualitative Reasoning will be held at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, from June 22 through 24, 2009.

For submission details see Call for Papers.
