There is only a little exaggeration in saying that fluency in reasoning with questions is a landmark of human intelligence. Question processing is a crucial factor in information processing in general, and more often than not the effectiveness of the latter depends on successful execution of the former.
The main purpose of QuestPro 2016 is to assess the state-of-the-art in research on questions and questioning, from the point of view of both logic and its applications to modelling natural language processes, thus bridging the gap between formal and empirical research in this field.
