Titre / Title: Working notes of the IJCAI-95 workshop on "Modelling Context in Knoledge Representation and Reasoning "
Abstract : The first goal of the IJCAI-95 workshop is to address the acquisition, explicit representation, reasoning with, and explanation of context in knowledge-based systems (KBSs). The second goal is to address the use of context to refine the acquisition of knowledge, its representation and its explanation while reasoning in KBSs. The workshop assembles a multi-disciplinary group of researchers and developers strongly concerned with the use of context in KBSs. Context is already used in different forms in AI. For example, in computational linguistics, context is essential in providing the right meaning in a text. Context is also explicitly represented in various logical formalisms. Context has also implicitly been represented through other means. For example, screening clauses are used to represent contexts and constrain reasoning in rule-based systems to effect desired results. In addition, Cognitive Scientists have long debated the general meaning and the significance of context in the environment. However, issues such as the modelling, explicit representation and use of context in knowledge-based problem solving, reasoning and explanation remain open for discussion.
