Inconsistency Robustness

Carl Hewitt and John Woods, eds.

Inconsistency robustness is information system performance in the face of continually pervasive inconsistencies---a shift from the previously dominant paradigms of inconsistency denial and inconsistency elimination attempting to sweep them under the rug. Inconsistency robustness is a both an observed phenomenon and a desired feature:
• Inconsistency Robustness is an observed phenomenon because large information-systems are required to operate in an environment of pervasive inconsistency.
• Inconsistency Robustness is a desired feature because we need to improve the performance of large information system.

This volume has revised versions of refereed articles and panel summaries from the first two International Symposia on Inconsistency Robustness conducted under the auspices of the International Society for Inconsistency Robustness (iRobust http://irobust.org). The articles are broadly based on theory and practice, addressing fundamental issues in inconsistency robustness.

The field of Inconsistency Robustness aims to provide practical rigorous foundations for computer information systems dealing with pervasively inconsistent information.
