Andreas Herzig, IRIT CNRS, France

Short Bio: Andreas Herzig is a CNRS senior researcher (Directeur de Recherches CNRS) in the Logic, Interaction, Language, and Computation Group (LILaC) of IRIT at Universite Paul Sabatier. He is the head of IRIT's AI Department. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal Applied Non-Classical Logics and associated editor of Artificial Intelligence. He is an EurAI Fellow. Andreas studied computer science in Darmstadt and Toulouse. In 1989 he obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse on Automated Deduction in Modal Logics. Since 1990 he is a CNRS researcher (senior researcher since 2004). His main research topic is the investigation of logical models of interaction, with a focus on logics for reasoning about knowledge, belief, time, action, intention and obligation, and the development of automated reasoning methods for them.

Francesca Toni, Imperial College London, UK

Short Bio: Francesca Toni is Professor in Computational Logic in the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, UK, and the founder and leader of the CLArg (Computational Logic and Argumentation) research group. Her research interests lie within the broad area of KR and Explainable AI, and in particular include Argumentation, Argument Mining, Logic-Based Multi-Agent Systems, Logic Programming, Non-monotonic/Default/Defeasible Reasoning. She graduated, summa cum laude, in Computing at the University of Pisa, Italy, in 1990, and received her PhD in Computing in 1995, from Imperial College London. She has coordinated two EU projects, received funding from EPSRC (in the UK) and the EU, and awarded a Senior Research Fellowship from The Royal Academy of Engineering and the Leverhulme Trust. She is currently Technical Director of the ROAD2H EPSRC-funded project ( and co-Director for the Centres of Doctoral Training in Safe and Trusted AI and in AI for Healthcare. She has co-chaired ICLP2015 (the 31st International Conference on Logic Programming) and KR 2018 (the 16th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning). She is EurAI fellow and a member of the steering committee of and KR, inc., corner editor on Argumentation for the Journal of Logic and Computation, and in the editorial board of the Argument and Computation journal and the AI journal.
