1st Workshop on Logics for Qualitative Modelling and Reasoning (LQMR'15)
Lodz, Poland, 13-16 September, 2015
Qualitative Reasoning (QR) is a research area at the interface of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Engineering, and Science. Its core objective is to model real world systems that have continuous aspects about which we only have incomplete or qualitative knowledge. In seeking to understand human ability to reason qualitatively, QR combines the quest for comprehension of effective reasoning about systems and new ways to supplement conventional modeling, analysis, diagnosis, and control techniques to tackle real-world applications.
