IJRIS is an interdisciplinary forum that publishes original and significant work related to intelligent systems based on all kinds of formal and informal reasoning. Intelligent systems imply any systems that can do systematised reasoning, including automated and heuristic reasoning.


 Topics covered include

  • Classical reasoning
  • Non-classical reasoning
  • Informal logics and their systematisation and applications
  • Logical reasoning systems
  • Theoretical foundations of intelligent information systems
  • Intelligent techniques for natural language processing

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJRIS are to provide an interdisciplinary forum for computer scientists, knowledge engineers, logicians and linguists widely concerned with reasoning based intelligent systems, and to uncover hidden logics that have not yet been systematized but are applicable to intelligent systems.

IJRIS provides a platform to help academics, researchers, engineers and students who are concerned with the fields of artificial intelligence, intelligent engineering, logic and linguistics, to disseminate their academic ideas and to learn from each otherís work.


IJRIS publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, conference reports and book reviews. Special issues devoted to important topics in Intelligent Systems will occasionally be published.
