Seminar Logic-Based Knowledge Representation

Lehrveranstaltung mit SWS 0/2/0 (Vorlesung/Übung/Praktikum) in SS 2022


Umfang (SWS)

  • 0/2/0



  • Hausarbeit
  • Referat

Course Description

The seminar introduces selected topics of active research areas in the field of knowledge representation by analyzing introductory literature as well as research papers. In particular, we will focus on three topics in this course:

1) Modal Logics

2) Non-monotonic Reasoning, and

3) Algorithms and Systems.

Since each topic will have an introductory session, this course is not only recommended to students who want to deepen their knowledge on knowledge representation, but also to those who are unfamiliar with these topics.


Participants are expected to be familiar with propositional and first-order logic.

If possible, please register via Selma course “K1107-MA0027S Logic-Based Knowledge Representation (S)”.

Course Plan

The seminar will now proceed as indicated in the “Dates and Materials” section.

Please send a draft of your slides at least one week (preferably two weeks) before the date of your talk to Hannes Straß to get feedback.

All participants are expected to read the respective text before each presentation in order to be acquainted with the topic and to be able to actively contribute to a lively discussion. In case you cannot find a text, send an e-mail.


The seminar will take place online via Zoom.

Course Paper

Send your research question (topic proposal) to Hannes Straß by 15th August, 2022.

Once your topic is approved, you may commence writing your paper. Hand it in (again by e-mail) until 19th September, 2022.
