LPNMR'05 is the eighth in the series of international meetings on logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning. Seven previous meetings were held in Washington, U.S.A. (1991), in Lisbon, Portugal (1993), in Lexington, U.S.A. (1995), in Dagstuhl, Germany (1997), in El Paso, U.S.A. (1999), in Vienna, Austria (2001), and in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (2004).
LPNMR'05 is organized by the Department of Mathematics of University of Calabria (Italy), and will be co-located with the INFOMIX Workshop on Data Integration.
The proceedings of the conference are published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series, volume 3662.
AIMS AND SCOPE
LPNMR is a forum for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, nonmonotonic reasoning and knowledge representation. The aim of the conference is to facilitate interactions between researchers interested in the design and implementation of logic based programming languages and database systems, and researchers who work in the areas of knowledge representation and nonmonotonic reasoning.
LPNMR strives to encompass these theoretical and experimental studies that lead to the construction of practical systems for declarative programming and knowledge representation.
The technical program of LPNMR 2005 comprises three invited talks, 25 research papers, and two special tracks for application and system presentations (16 additional presentations). For further details on the scheduling of the talks, please visit our web site.

The conference will be co-located with the INFOMIX Workshop on Data Integration. The aim of the workshop is to discuss about recent research results on data integration exploiting LPNMR methods and systems, and capable of handling also data inconsistency and incompleteness.
