17th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
12-18 September 2020, Rhodes, Greece

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) is a well-established and
field of research.  In KR a fundamental assumption is that an agent's
is explicitly represented in a declarative form, suitable for processing
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
fields beyond AI, including databases, verification, software
engineering, and
robotics.  In recent years, KR has contributed also to new and emerging
including the semantic web, computational biology, cyber security, and
development of software agents.

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


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


In addition to the main conference track, KR2020 will host the following
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
