JELIA 2010
12th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence

September 13-15, 2010         Helsinki, Finland


to the 12th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (JELIA 2010) in Helsinki, Finland, September 13-15, 2010!

JELIA 2010 is co-organized by University of Helsinki and Aalto University School of Science and Technology (former TKK), and is co-located with the 5th European Workshop on Probabilistic Graphical Models (PGM 2010).


Logics have, for many years, laid claim to providing a formal basis for the study and development of applications and systems in Artificial Intelligence. With the depth and maturity of formalisms, methodologies and logic-based systems today, this claim is stronger than ever.

The European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (or Journées Européennes sur la Logique en Intelligence Artificielle - JELIA) began back in 1988, as a workshop, in response to the need for a European forum for the discussion of emerging work in this field. Since then, JELIA has been organised biennially, with proceedings published in the Springer-Verlag series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. Previous meetings took place in Roscoff, France (1988), Amsterdam, Netherlands (1990), Berlin, Germany (1992), York, UK (1994), Évora, Portugal (1996), Dagstuhl, Germany (1998), Málaga, Spain (2000), Cosenza, Italy (2002), Lisbon, Portugal (2004), Liverpool, UK (2006), and Dresden, Germany (2008).

The increasing interest in this forum, its international level with growing participation from researchers outside Europe, and the overall technical quality, have turned JELIA into a major biennial forum for the discussion of logic-based approaches to artificial intelligence.
