CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation 
and
Reasoning (KR2020)
12-18 September 2020 - Rhodes, Greece
https://kr2020.inf.unibz.it/

KR2020 will be organized as a "hybrid" conference, and welcomes all 
researchers
interested in KR to participate either physically or virtually!

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.

Information about registration, venue, accommodation, and travel are 
available
at https://kr2020.inf.unibz.it/ .

The list of papers accepted at the main conference and the Doctoral 
Consortium
is also available at the conference webpage.
