Call For Papers
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) is an exciting, well-established 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, such as automated planning and natural language understanding, among others, as well as to fields beyond AI, including databases, software engineering, the semantic web, computational biology, 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. 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 welcome papers from other areas that show clear use of, or contributions to, the principles or practice of KR. We also encourage "reports from thefield" of applications, experiments, developments, and tests. Such papers should be explicitly identified as reports from the field by the authors, to ensure appropriate reviewing, and must include a section on evaluation.

The best paper of the conference will receive the 2018 Ray Reiter Best Paper Prize, and the best student paper, whose main author is a student, will receive the 2018 Marco Cadoli Student Paper Prize. In addition, a few selected papers from KR 2018 will have the opportunity for fast-track publication in the AI Journal, and the best 1-2 papers in the area of logic programming or answer set programming will have the opportunity for fast-track publication in TPLP.

    Belief revision and update, belief merging, etc.
