  • QR 2013 Outreach

    Contributions at recent QR workshops reflect a broad interdisciplinarity comprising of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, and Engineering. From the viewpoint of basic research questions, QR-2013 aims to strengthen this interdisciplinary interface by directly appealing to the other fields such as:
    • Commonsense and Non-Monotonic Reasoning
    • Geometric, Spatial and Temporal Reasoning
    • Visual and Diagrammatic Reasoning
    • Analogical Reasoning
    • Formal and Applied Ontology

    Application Areas

    QR 2013 seeks to address the role of qualitative modelling, reasoning, and computing in a wide-range of domains such as:
    • Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments
    • Environmental Modelling and Simulation
    • Geographic Information Systems
    • Computational Creativity
    • Experimental Cognitive Robotics
    • Computer-Aided Learning and Education
    • Qualitative Modelling in Cultural Heritage and Art Projects
    • Computer-Aided Design and Analysis for Engineering, Architecture, Urban Planning, Product Design
