                Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning

The 16th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic
Reasoning (LPNMR 2022) will be held in Genova, Italy.

The objective of the LPNMR workshop program is to stimulate the discussion
and the exchange of ideas on topics related, but not limited, to declarative
logic programming, non-monotonic reasoning, and knowledge representation. We
aim at creating a forum where researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines
may interact and have an opportunity to promote collaboration and identify
directions for joint future research. Accordingly, we solicit workshop
proposals on theoretical and applied research topics.

Workshop proposals should explain and motivate the topic of the workshop, and
discuss the format of presentation of the contributes. Workshops will likely
be half-day or one-day in duration, but we may consider longer programs.

Genova is the capital of Liguria, stretching along the bay of Genova
from Nervi to the east as far as Voltri to the west. Its old town district
is one of the largest in Europe, and hosts some remarkable artistic and
architectural treasures, including the Palazzi dei Rolli, fifty or so
homes of the aristocracy entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In
addition to offering a wealth of cultural attractions, Genova is a
fascinating destination for tourists, with its scenic vantage points,
sea promenades, aristocratic villas and of course the Riviera to the
east and west, both easy to reach: Portovenere and Le Cinque Terre (also
UNESCO World Heritage Sites), Portofino and Camogli to the east and
Alassio, Sanremo, Bordighera to the west.

The main conference will take place in Genova Nervi, Italy, in the
Collegio Emiliani (http://www.collegioemiliani.it/, information
available only in Italian on this link), which is a college directly
situated on the sea. Nervi is a former fishing village, now a suburb of
Genoa. Nervi is 7 km east of central Genova.

Of course, we will continuously monitor the pandemic situation in order
to evaluate whether the conference can be indeed held as an in-person
event, or we will need to switch to a hybrid event, if not completely
