Call for Papers

Many problems in AI (in reasoning, planning, learning, perception and robotics) require the agent to operate with incomplete or uncertain information. The objective of this track is to present and discuss a broad and diverse range of current work on uncertain reasoning, including theoretical and applied research based on different paradigms. We hope that the variety and richness of this track will help to promote cross fertilization among the different approaches for uncertain reasoning, and in this way foster the development of new ideas and paradigms.

The Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning (UR) is the oldest track in FLAIRS conferences, running annually since 1996. The UR 2022 Special Track at the 35th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society Conference (FLAIRS-35) is the 27th in the series. Like the past tracks, UR 2022 seeks to bring together researchers working on broad issues related to reasoning under uncertainty.

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning are invited. Papers of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

Program Committee

Track Chairs

PC Members

Other Information

FLAIRS 35 is planned to run as a mild-hybrid conference, with a safe physical venue, but also providing an option for online presentation for those who cannot attend the physical conference. Detailed information on the conference location and travel planning can be found here. Feel free to write the organizers (alessandro@idsia.ch) for any further information about the special track.


Submissions of all papers to FLAIRS-35 is done through the EasyChair conference system:


Authors kit can be downloaded here

There are three kinds of submissions:

  • full paper - a paper of high quality, which will be published in the proceedings (up to 6 pages) and will be presented by the author in a corresponding track (20 minute oral presentation);
  • short paper - a paper that shows some novelty and general interest, but is more preliminary or in the early stages of development, which also get published in the proceedings (up to 4 pages) and the author presents the work in a poster session; and
  • poster abstract, which will be published as abstract only (up to 250 words; please follow this format for the final camera-ready poster abstract) and the author presents the work in a poster session.

Rejected full papers may still be accepted as short papers or poster abstracts, if reviewers found interest in the idea, but the paper quality was not sufficient to be published in full length. There will also be a separate abstract only submission for authors who want to submit just an abstract and present it in a poster session.

For each accepted paper (full, short, or poster abstract), there must be an accompanying AUTHOR REGISTRATION. A single author may have up to a maximum of two papers per AUTHOR REGISTRATION. Author names may be changed or re-ordered after reviewing; however, for budgetary reasons, registration fees will be based on the details at the time of submission and review.

The accepted papers in the track will be published in the proceedings of FLAIRS-35 published by the FloridaOJ. Authors are expected to make a reasonable effort to address reviewers’ comments prior to the submission of the camera ready paper. Where such expectations have been flouted, actions may be taken to preserve the quality of the conference and the expectations of conference goers. In order for a paper to be published in the proceedings, the paper must be accompanied by at least one AUTHOR REGISTRATION. It is also expected that for a full (i.e., maximum 6-page) paper, at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present their work.

In addition, the track chairs may invite the high quality track papers to a special issue of a journal. The journal version should have a sufficient extension to the accepted track paper.

When submitting your paper, select the Uncertain Reasoning track. Double-blind reviewing is used for research papers, so submitted papers must not reveal authors identify (for example, use your paper ID from EasyChair instead of author name in your paper). Do NOT use a fake name for your EasyChair login; your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers.

The initial deadlines have been extended. Papers are now due by February 14, 2022 (abstracts by February 7, 2022).
