This volume gives the proceedings of the sixteenth GermanConference on Artificial Intelligence, held in the GustavStresemann Institute in Berlin from August 31 to September3, 1992. The volume contains 24 papers presentedin thetechnical sessions, 8 papers selected from the workshopcontributions, and an invited talk by D.M. Gabbay entitled"Howto construct a logic for your application".Topics discussed in the technical papers include: a modelelimination calculus, a sorted logic, human theorem proving,deduction based on Shannon graphs, expert systemapplications, knowledge engineering, time interval networks,forward logic evaluation, concept support, heuristicinductivegeneralization, language engineering, featurelogic, similarity assessment, and many others.
