CALL FOR TUTORIAL AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
19th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation 
and Reasoning, KR 2022
August 2–5, 2022, Haifa, Israel
Tutorials and workshops: July 31–August 1, 2022


The 19th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge 
Representation and Reasoning (KR 2022) solicits proposals for its 
tutorial and workshop programme. KR 2022 will be held as part of the 
Federated Logic Conference (FLoC 2022) in Haifa, Israel, from July 31 to 
August 12, 2022. The KR-affiliated FLoC tutorials and workshops will 
take place directly before KR, on July 31–August 1. All events that are 
part of FLoC are currently planned to take place physically, but people 
can participate remotely in cases where travel is impossible.

The deadline for submissions of tutorial and workshop proposals has been 
extended to **September 27, 2021**.

Each proposal should be in English and must be submitted electronically 
to FLoC 2022 via EasyChair:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=floc2022workshops


SUBMISSION OF WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Workshops provide a place to exchange ideas in emerging fields in KR 
research and application. They can take many forms, including 
mini-conferences (with peer-reviewed publications), competitions, 
working sessions (discussions, hackathons, etc.), line-ups of invited 
contributions, or a mix of these. Innovative formats are welcome, but 
organizers must provide means of estimating attendance and required 
length up-front (by number of submissions, invited speakers, or early 
registered participants).

Each workshop proposal should consist of the following two parts (see 
also https://floc2022.org/workshops/).

1. A short scientific justification of the proposed topic, its 
significance, and the particular benefits of the workshop to the 
community, as well as a list of previous or related workshops (if relevant).

2. An organisational part including
   * contact information for the workshop organizers,
   * proposed affiliated conference (e.g. KR),
   * estimate of the number of workshop participants,
   * proposed format and agenda (e.g. paper presentations, invited 
talks, demo sessions, etc.),
   * potential invited speakers,
   * procedures for selecting papers and participants,
   * plans for dissemination, if any (e.g. a journal special issue),
   * duration (which may vary from one day to two days),
   * preferred period (pre or post FLoC),
   * virtual/hybrid backup plans (including platform preference).

The main duties of the chairs of each accepted workshop are:
* set up a webpage for the workshop,
* advertise the workshop and distribute its call for papers/participation,
* coordinate the peer-reviewing of submitted contributions,
* if workshop proceedings are desired, it is the duty of the organizers 
to produce and distribute their workshop proceedings,
* organize a schedule for the workshop in collaboration with the FLoC 
organizers and the KR workshop co-chairs, and
* coordinate and moderate the workshop participation and content.

All KR-affiliated FLoC workshops should have their paper submission 
deadline on March 31, 2022, and notify the authors by May 6, 2022.

For all accepted proposals, FLoC and KR will take care of all local 
and/or virtual arrangements.

FLoC and KR reserve the right to cancel a workshop or merge several 
workshops if they do not have enough participants to cover their running 
costs.


SUBMISSION OF TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

Tutorials are half-day or (exceptionally) full-day events that introduce 
general or special topics in KR and relevant neighboring areas. They can 
be first introductions to an established area or an emerging field, but 
also advanced courses on specialised methods or new approaches. The 
content should be adequately established and balanced, and not be 
limited to advertising an individual research work or product. A focus 
on specific tools and methodologies can still be useful to offer 
concrete examples and hands-on activities to participants.

Tutorial proposals should be submitted in the same way as workshop 
proposals (see above and https://floc2022.org/workshops/), excluding 
paper selection and dissemination plans. The duration of a tutorial 
should normally be half a day, but an argument can be made for a 
full-day tutorial.

The main duties of the tutorial organizers are:
* set up a web-page for the tutorial, which should at least include the 
information from the proposal, tutorial materials and related 
references, and
* deliver the tutorial at FLoC 2022.
