Speech Title: Application of Paraconsistent Annotated
Logic Program EVALPSN to Intelligent Control/Safety Verification (Download
Kazumi Nakamatsu received the Ms. Eng. and Dr. Sci. from Shizuoka University and
Kyushu University, Japan, respectively. He is a full Professor at School of
Human Science and Environment, University of Hyogo, Japan.
His research interests encompass various kinds of logic and their applications to Computer Science, especially paraconsistent annotated logic programs and their applications. He has developed some paraconsistent annotated logic programs called ALPSN(Annotated Logic Program with Strong Negation), VALPSN(Vector ALPSN), EVALPSN(Extended VALPSN) and bf-EVALPSN (before-after EVALPSN) recently, and applied them to various intelligent systems such as a safety verification based railway interlocking control system and process order control. He is an author of over 150 papers and book chapters, and edited 7 books published by prominent publishers.
Kazumi Nakamatsu has chaired various international conferences, workshops and invited sessions, and he has been a member of numerous international program committees of workshops and conferences in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Reasoning-based Intelligent Systems by Inderscience Publishers(UK) and an editorial board member of many international journals. He has contributed numerous invited lectures at international workshops, conferences, and academic organizations. He also is a recipient of some conference and paper awards. He is a member of Japan AI Society, IEEE, etc.
