CALL FOR PAPERS 

17th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
(KR2020) 

12--18 September 2020, Rhodes, Greece 

https://kr2020.inf.unibz.it/ 

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) is a well-established and
lively field of research. In KR a fundamental assumption is that an
agent's knowledge is explicitly represented in a declarative form,
suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines. This assumption,
that much of what an agent deals with is knowledge-based, is common in
many modern intelligent systems. Consequently, KR has contributed to the
theory and practice of various areas in AI, including automated planning
and natural language understanding, and to fields beyond AI, including
databases, verification, software engineering, and robotics. In recent
years, KR has contributed also to new and emerging fields, including the
semantic web, computational biology, cyber security, and the development
of software agents.    

The KR conference series is the leading forum for timely in-depth
presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the
representation and computational management of knowledge. 

SCOPE 

We solicit papers presenting novel results on the principles of KR that
clearly contribute to the formal foundations of relevant problems or
show the applicability of results to implemented or implementable
systems.  We also welcome papers from other areas that show clear use
of, or contributions to, the principles or practice of KR. We also
encourage "reports from the field" of applications, experiments,
developments, and tests. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

 	* Applications of KR
 	* Argumentation
 	* Belief revision and update, belief merging, information fusion
 	* Commonsense reasoning
 	* Computational aspects of knowledge representation
 	* Concept formation, similarity-based reasoning
 	* Contextual reasoning
 	* Decision making
 	* Description logics
 	* Explanation finding, diagnosis, causal reasoning, abduction
 	* Geometric, spatial, and temporal reasoning
 	* Inconsistency- and exception tolerant reasoning, paraconsistent
logics
 	* KR and autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
 	* KR and cognitive robotics
 	* KR and cyber security
 	* KR and education
 	* KR and game theory
 	* KR and machine learning, inductive logic programming, knowledge
acquisition
 	* KR and natural language processing and understanding
 	* KR and the Web, Semantic Web
 	* Knowledge graphs, virtual knowledge graphs, and open linked data
 	* Knowledge representation languages
 	* Logic programming, answer set programming, constraint logic
programming
 	* Modeling and reasoning about preferences
 	* Multi- and order-sorted representations and reasoning
 	* Nonmonotonic logics, default logics, conditional logics
 	* Ontology formalisms and models
 	* Ontology-based data access, integration, and exchange
 	* Philosophical foundations of KR
 	* Qualitative reasoning, reasoning about physical systems
 	* Reasoning about actions and change, action languages
 	* Reasoning about knowledge, beliefs, and other mental attitudes
 	* Uncertainty, vagueness, many-valued and fuzzy logics

KR2020 will also feature Workshops and Tutorials, solicited by means of
an open call, and a Doctoral Consortium. 

TRACKS 

In addition to the main conference track, KR2020 will host the following
tracks and sessions: 

 	* Applications and Systems Track
 	* Recent Published Research Track
 	* Special Session: KR and Machine Learning 
 	* Special Session: KR and Robotics
 	* Special Session: Women in KR

IMPORTANT DATES 

Submission of title and abstract: 4 March 2020 

Paper submission deadline: 11 March 2020 

Author response period: 4--6 May 2020 

Notification: 27 May 2020 

Camera-ready papers: 24 June 2020 

Conference dates: 12--18 September 2020 

Recent Published Research Track, Workshops and Tutorials, and Doctoral
Consortium will have different submission and notification dates, which
will be announced separately. 

AUTHORS GUIDELINES 

All submissions must be written in English and in AAAI style. Papers
must be submitted in PDF format, through the EasyChair conference
system: 

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kr2020 . 

For the main conference track and additional tracks/sessions (except for
the Recent Published Research track), we invite  

 	* Full papers of up to 9 pages, including abstract, figures, and
appendices (if any), but excluding references and acknowledgements.
 	* Short papers of up to 4 pages, excluding references and
acknowledgements. 

Both full and short papers must describe original, previously
unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for
publication elsewhere. These restrictions do not apply to previously
accepted workshop papers with a limited audience and/or without archival
proceedings, and to papers uploaded at public repositories (e.g.,
arXiv). 

The accepted full papers and short papers will be published in the
KR2020 proceedings. 

Recent Published Research Track, Workshops and Tutorials, and Doctoral
Consortium will have different submission guidelines, which will be
announced separately.
