Objectivies and Approach

This collaboration involves members of the COMPULOG NET network of excellence. The objective is to develop a general methodology for the application of logic programming to knowledge representation and reasoning. This will involve studying various extensions of the basic logic programming paradigm, expressive enough to formalise common sense reasoning.

Progress and Results

A number of results have been obtained during the progress of this action:

Information Dissemination Activities and/or Exploitation

Results achieved so far have been presented at international conferences and publications. The Asian partner has given a number of lectures to the European sites. Various seminars and lectures have also been organised in the Asian site.
