Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a well-established
and vibrant field of research. KR&R techniques are key drivers of
innovation in computer science, and they have led to significant
advances in practical applications in a wide range of areas from
Artificial Intelligence to Software Engineering. The underlying
approach of explicitly representing knowledge in a tangible form,
suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines, is a
fundamental component of many modern intelligent systems. Foundational
and applied research in KR&R contributes to the principles of
artificial intelligence. It also contributes to the foundations of
longstanding fields including automated planning, databases, and
software engineering. In recent years KR&R has also derived
challenges from new and emerging fields including the semantic web,
computational biology, and the development of software agents.

The KR conference series is a leading forum for timely in-depth
presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the
representation and computational management of knowledge. KR 2012
will be a forum for the exchange and discussion of new ideas, issues,
and results on the principles and practice of KR&R.
